Clamor in Chisinau and around the Moldovan political institutions amid pandemic and quarantine. The noise pollution device at maximum speed seems to be installed at the presidency. Not just because he owns televisions and portals that amplify Dodon and his team’s voice, but because the president commits controversies wildly and no longer answers questions about his mistakes.
During this difficult year, President Dodon has broken the quarantine rules every day, having vacations while everyone was under work and family stress, traveling to Turkey and Russia without any reason, moreover not declaring his state’s costs in the declaration of assets. Moldova’s President also decorates people with State Awards monthly, those who are controversial characters in lists, some of whom would have been better off being decorated by justice with a sentence in a penitentiary. The last character was Mihail Aizin, alias Kitaeț, a former leader of a criminal group.
For four years Igor Dodon preferred the Chisinau-Moscow route, on official or obscure occasions, causing a permanent noise on this topic, without explaining to the Moldovan people his traveling goals. In his first meetings with Igor Ceaika, the son of the General Prosecutor of Russia, Dodon described them: “In a friendly atmosphere, the interlocutors discussed a wide range of important aspects of Moldovan-Russian economic cooperation, first of all, the issue of investments of the Russian business environment in the Moldovan economy.” Later Moldova found out that President Dodon’s brother became a partner in a garbage business in Russia. The Russian prosecutor’s son became a partner in the media empire affiliated with the Socialists in Chisinau. It is no secret Dodon has good relationships with the former President of Belarus. The other day the same controversial Igor Ceaika was seen in the company of Lukashenko’s sons in Minsk. All this, after Igor Dodon, congratulated the Belarusian dictator on his seizure (through abuse) of a new presidential term.
On September 28, Igor Dodon announced that he had a virtual dialogue with Vladimir Putin and discussed “a wide range of issues.” Before the Moldovan society could realize what that broad spectrum discussion was about, Igor Dodon announced that he had already met in person with Russia’s ambassador in Chisinau to discuss the recent dialogue with Putin.
While Dodon is engaged in pro-Russian communication, no one asks about the time efficiency spent with Putin and the Russian Ambassador, as Igor Dodon already announced that he had met the president of the oil company Lukoil Moldova to discuss what way the aid to be granted not known when and how for the Moldovan farmers. What does Lukoil have to do with the Moldovan farmers anyway? Why does a state president discuss the money requested from the president of another state with a private company in Chisinau?
Meanwhile, it is getting lauder on the background, after Igor Dodon announced a few days ago that he had a discussion with the President Turkey, Recep Erdogan about “strategic partnerships” without bringing details. Two days after the talks, the media revealed that Vlad Plahotniuc, wanted by Moldovan law enforcement, was identified in Turkey on the very day Erdogan was talking to Dodon. Did Igor Dodon discuss about Plahotniuc’s extradition to Chisinau? Or about the fate of Turkish teachers?
It seems that Dodon obeys Putin or Erdogan more often than his own citizens. Meanwhile, the election campaign has started. The citizens, deafened by former criminal leader Ceaika, Lukoil Company, and other political deals, could quarantine political leaders who clamor but do not answer questions.
