The European Union Warns Moldova Against Propaganda Messages

 Two members of the European Parliament said in a joint statement that they had seen derogatory messages against the European Union. Moreover, the members of the European Parliament stated that the European Union will not become a scapegoat for the authorities in Chișinău, for covering their unpreparedness and failure in fighting against the coronavirus. 

The Head of the European Parliament Delegation to the European Union-Moldova Parliamentary Association Committee and the Head of the Delegation to the European Parliamentary Assembly stressed their concern regarding the recent developments in Moldova.

“The European Union (EU) is Moldova’s largest supporter. However, the propaganda and misinformation campaigns present a distorted and unrealistic picture. President Igor Dodon’s constant attacks and a series of contemptuous and denigrating messages against the EU on public television and in the media do not help Moldovans or improve EU-Moldova relations,” officials said.

They recall that the EU provided aid of about half a billion euros to Moldovans, including €87 million in non-reimbursable funds for immediate needs, €30 million, in cooperation with the World Health Organization, for medical supplies. The EU also will provide €100 million to mitigate the effects of the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, €70 million in the second and third tranches of macro-financial assistance, but the amounts will be transferred only after the authorities implement the necessary reforms. The International Monetary Fund also offered support of €220 million.

“The EU aid is not intended to cover the political goals of the government, but to help Moldovans affected by the COVID-19 crisis,” the members of the European Parliament said, adding that the aid is intended for citizens.

At the same time, Mureșan and Kubilius mention that the loan from the Russian Federation is suspicious and the pressure on the judges of the Constitutional Court is worrying.

The Romanian Government also warned that the financial support will be strictly monitored and will be offered only when the reforms essential for Moldova’s democratic path will be implemented. 

The Romanian authorities announced that the current political situation, in Moldova, is not encouraging. The recent developments in the country don’t contribute towards Moldova’s European path. Subsequently, the authorities in Moldova will receive financial support only if they will commit to implementing the reforms essential to the democratic development of the country.
