Another European country is preparing for Russian aggression: it has started exercises with the USA and Romania

--

The exercises taking place at the training centers of the national army began on April 1 and will continue until April 19.

“The aim of the exercise is the joint training and exchange of experience of the special forces of Moldova, Romania and the United States, as well as increasing the level of operational interaction between the armies of the three states,” the Ministry of Defense of Moldova noted.

Soldiers of the Moldovan special forces “Fulger” (“Lightning”) and “Pantera”, as well as representatives of the State Security Service, will take part in the maneuvers. Soldiers will perform parachute jumps, engage in combat firefights day and night, and train for mission-specific field operations, including the use of military equipment.

Fear of Russian aggression

Moldova holds military exercises with NATO countries in the face of the constant threat from Russia. Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, has repeatedly accused Moscow of wanting to carry out a coup in the country. The president of the republic, Maia Sandu, has said that Russia invaded Ukraine with the intention of “creating a military land corridor” to Moldova, in order to later “forcibly change” the constitutional system there.

The situation escalated at the end of February, when the Transnistrian authorities asked Russia to intervene due to “pressure” from Moldova. The initiator of the appeal was Vadimas Krasnoselsky, the president of the self-proclaimed republic. He stated that a “policy of genocide” is being carried out against Transnistria, the signs of which are alleged “economic suffocation, physical extermination of some people, denial of legal protection and an attempt to forcefully inculcate a language.”

Vladimir Putin made similar statements when speaking about the decision to start a war in Ukraine. This gave reason to believe that a similar scenario will be implemented in relation to Moldova.

After 2022 February 24 Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has repeatedly said that Moldova could become “another Ukraine” as its president Sandu “desires” to join NATO, and said that Russia “will not allow its citizens living in Transnistria to become another Western adventure victims”.
