Beyond the illegal manner in which a group of few selected citizens met on the 24 February, 2019, in positions of members of Parliament, we should carefully examine who would take over the power of Chisinau. On the first hand, they are a couple of new politicians with pro-Europeans vision for the country’s development. The political image does not seem to matter to them, so they move on to align themselves with the socialists and pro-Kremlinists. Everything seems sincere, but... The imagine of Joan D’Arc which is attributed to Maia Sandu can be easily washed away if one makes a simple analysis of the last few years during which the little politician received money and was consulted and support by the representatives of the underworld. According to a journalistic investigation conducted by zeppelin.md, which came out at the beginning of this year, the leader of PAS, Maia Sandu, benefited from the political consultations with an American expert, paid by the first person on the radar of the CSI, Veaceslav Platon.
The talk is about Noel Boxer, the political consultant specializing in electoral campaigns. The specialist was paid 12 thousand dollars per month from July to November 2016, ahead of the presidential elections. The amount of at least 60 thousand dollars, was not declared by the Party Actions and Solidarity (PAS). It is not so bad to have foreign partners who can help you, it is just that you are so good at proclaiming to crowds in the street that you are the one and only fighter with the oligarchs and corruption, while at the same time you are financed by blood money.
Or is it that ”money doesn’t smell”? Not even in the verticality chapter, the consistency and devotion to the voter suits you well, madam. Let’s remember the community protests organized by the Kremlin, which took place in Chisinau in January 2016. Maia Sandu did not have a problem protesting side by side to her adversary Igor Dodon and outpost Renato Usatyi. If you don’t know who Renato Usatii is, you can just do a google search and see his connections with the Russian criminal world, special services of the Russian Federation, as well as his implication in the assasination attempt of the banker Gherman Gorbuntov. We can connect the dots, though the thought will finish with a question: Madam Sandu, you have betrayed Moldovans, Unionists, pro-Europeans, who is next?
If we speak of the other opposition leader, Andrei Nastase, some things do not add. Coordinated by his marriage god-father, Victor Topa, who is on the wanted list, accused of blackmailing and sequestration of one of his business partners, he attempts to get to power by any means possible. The final goal is to bring Topa back to the country and take over all the government institutions. Nastase is an ally of Veacestal Platon and Renato Usati, in addition to a powerful criminal Grigori Karamalac.
After multiple visits to Brussels during which official guarantees to the EU were made of the most noble and Christian intentions, Nastase and Sandu, entered an alliance with Igor Dodon, who in turn guaranteed to the Kremlin that he will bring Moldova back to be under the Russian influence. Those who do not believe can watch videos which recently appeared and which clearly state that Moldova must be federalized, meaning desintegrated.
And here is the final question—who did you chose, dear Moldovan?
