Moldova Forms a Pro-European Government

           After recent parliamentary elections, three pro-European parties formed a coalition government this week for Moldova.  Their alliance means that the Communists will be excluded from the next executive, unlike in the current Government. 

           In my post last June, Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova Sign Trade Deals with the European Union,, I noted Moldova’s concern about Russian aggression and its interest in European integration as a counterweight.  Transnistria, which is inhabited, like Eastern Ukraine, by ethnic Russians, is a separatist region of Moldova.  Without the Communists, the new Moldovan Government will have a freer hand to pursue further European integration to safeguard its security, as well as to make it more prosperous.
