Russia is trying to destabilize the situation in Moldova.  The so-called “little green men” appeared there, as reported by the Information-Analytical Center of the National Security & Defense Council (NSDC).

“Russia is trying to destabilize the situation not only in Ukraine but also in other countries. According to G. Kosovan, the former Deputy Interior Minister of the Republic of Moldova, there are the so-called “little green men” in Moldova now who recruit young people and instruct them in techniques of disinformation, action in emergency situations, and use of small arms,”- was said in the statement.

Citing Kosovan, the NSDC said that more than 500 people have been recruited in the south of Moldova and trained in Rostov, Moscow, Transnistria and Beltsy.

    Moldova and Ukraine should immediately ban all flights from Russia to the territory of Moldova, including Transdinistria.

    What happened to the sanctions organized by the EU and US last Friday! For god’s sake they must be implemented forthwith. Putin will not be happy until he has a land bridge to Crimea through Mariuopol, Berdyansk and so forth. Regime change should be the order of the day, not just heavy sanctions, other wise this thug Putin will not stop, dictators never do, he is the worst weapon Russia has!

    Well, let’s not point finger at those who have really destabilized the very Ukraine because to all seeming they have plans for the Ukrainization of Moldova, too…
