Moldova: Protesters break into the parlament to protest pro EU goverment



https://www.rt.com/news/329590-protester...arliament/

"The protesters gathered in front of the parliament on Wednesday to demonstrate against the lawmaker’s decision to approve the pro-EU cabinet led by Pavel Filip. Thousands of demonstrators blockaded the building after the new government was approved without debate.

Some police officers were reportedly dragged out of the building by the demonstrators. According to some reports the protesters also used tear gas against police."


What surprised me about this news is that i saw them in an spanish forum but was really hard to find more information in western media. Moldova is a small country, but given the amount of press the Ukraine situation brought i would expect something similar.

well, the situation isn't close to being as violent as in ukraine. from what i understand, it's been confined to the central square mostly. and this time only a few protesters were able to breach the police lines.

there were a few stories on this in english language on yahoo news.. esp. after the amount of protesters grew to 40000 (supposedly).

RE: Moldova: Protesters break into the parlament to protest pro EU goverment
Yeah, I have been following the situation somewhat since it began and what happened was that there is a divide in Moldova between pro-Russian and some pro-EU forces.

The biggest political force in Moldova is the Socialist Party, which uses communist symbolism and is pro-Russian but is effectively national socialist (leftist on economics and socially conservative, blames the US Embassy of trying to spread gay propaganda in Moldova). Although in the recent election there back in February, the Party of Socialists gained the best result they did not gain an outright majority, while the pro-EU Democratic Party came in second. So after the election in February the Socialists spent about three months forming a new government as negotiations stalled, until early June, when Socialists formed a coalition with a smaller pro-EU party called ACUM. Because they took one day longer than the legal deadline of 90 days for forming a new coalition after an election, some elements of the government backed by the oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc (a billionaire who is the richest man in Moldova) tried to unseat the leader of the Socialists and President of Moldova, Igor Dodon, as well as to dissolve the parliament. Plahotniuc backs the pro-EU Democratic Party, which was left out of the agreement as a coalition was formed by the Socialists and ACUM, and had many of his people in charge of other government institutions, including Moldova's top court.

The Constitutional Court tried to declare Dodon no longer the legitimate president back in June and appointed Pavel Filip of the Democratic Party as his replacement, because they took a day longer than the deadline, and tried to dissolve the parliament elected in February. This caused protests. Eventually the Democratic Party and the Constitutional Court backed down and resigned from their posts, agreeing to confirm the power of the Socialist coalition and President Dodon. As the situation escalated people were speculating whether or not this would follow another "Ukraine scenario." Plahotniuc has fled the country since then and Russia recently put out an international warrant for his arrest for financial crimes.

Bizarrely, one of the first things that the usurpers wanted to do, according to "acting President" Filip, was move the Moldovan embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. These pro-EU guys have their priorities straight.

So it's strange situation of a ruling coalition between the pro-Russian and a pro-EU faction, against another pro-EU faction that tried to overthrow the cabinet and the parliament. The Socialist-led government is now in the process of purging the state of leftover people affiliated with Plahotniuc.
