Moldovan Therapy through fear
BSSB.BE jurnal.md/ 29.01.2015
The media holding controlled by the oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc has unleashed. After for years it had the role to perform propaganda for the Democratic Party, to change the accents and to denigrate the ones who are not between hawk and buzzard, now on the agenda of all television posts, bloggers and analysts of Plahotniuc figures a single point – insertion of fear in people.
Once with the formation of the Government Filip in obscure conditions, almost secretly, the protests which last for one year in Chişinău have burst with a new power. Plahotniuc staked on the fact that the people will get tired and disappointed, at a certain moment, renouncing to protest, in the situation in which they will not be taken in consideration by the leadership of the country, but also on the background of the defamation of the leaders of the protests in the mass-media controlled by him. But the things overturned suddenly – the protests became more and more massive, they unified, and the people are determined like never not to give up.
No matter how cool he wants to seem, Plahotniuc has, however, a big fear – the crowd. He not in vain has started to beat with his whole power in the leaders of the protests namely after they joined their forces. And not in vain at the manifestation organized by the PD, where, by definition, had to be supporters of the party, Plahotniuc surrounded himself with a considerable number of bodyguards, armed to the teeth and equipped with armored umbrellas.
Now Plahotniuc has one purpose – to extirpate the protests at any cost and to maintain himself at power three more years, to steal what has still remained, to erase some tracks, to remove the last penny from the state treasury and to imprison some more people – organizers of protests, threatening civil servants and using other tricks to impede people to get on the PMAN have no expected effect. Plahotniuc has decided to recover his investment in so many television posts and has unleashed at maximum speed the whole media holding.
- The oligarch’s televisions, in unison with the bloggers and the analysts paid by him, have started to propagate in astronomical quantities the idea of risks which hover over us in the case of early elections and leaving from power of the current government, that pretends to be pro-European.
- We are scared with Russia and diversion of the European vector of the country, although it is hard to imagine that someone could compromise the pro-European idea more than did the present governors, who pretend not to understand that namely they destroyed the RM-EU relations.
- The Premier marionette scares us that, in the case of early elections, the salaries and the pensions will not be paid on time for at least four months. This is while the Minister of Finance of the current Government says that, starting with February there will not be money for pensions and salaries.
Further, the organizers and the participants to protests are threatened with criminal cases and fines, and Plahotniuc’s televisions broadcast special editions after special editions about what the protesters risk. Another indispensable element – the bomb alerts, without which no protest passes. Whether they are launched or not at the indication of the regime Plahotniuc we cannot know, but are relevant the insistence and the way in which are promoted the press institutions affiliated to the oligarch.
With all the compounds of the mega empire which Plahotniuc owns, now everything bases on the media holding, because on it depends if the protests will be thwarted, if it will succeed to scare enough the people, so that they to be afraid to come out of their houses, not even talking about going to protests.
The task is simple – the people to be scared as much as possible: news about the protests from the PMAN, broadcast with the most violent images from the protests from April, 7, 2009, followed by news about bomb alerts, then news about disappeared young people, fires, explosions, and again disappeared young people, and again bomb alert, the newscast being certainly followed by a special edition with analysts from the Bâc river, that will talk about how malefic are the organizers of the protesters, how pro-European is the government and in what catastrophe would be the RM without this government.
In this way, from morning till dawn, from four televisions with national coverage and from three radio posts the people are inoculated the fear for protests and are introduced in their minds the idea that the participation at the manifestations is dangerous. On one side, the ordinary people are scared with the television and, on the other side, the organizers are threatened with criminal cases.
Everything is made because Plahotniuc is scared yet of something – by PEOPLE.
Euroskepticism Economy Crisis
- project-syndicate.org – Europe`s on the Brink. History tells us that the answer is an emphatic no. Sixty years ago, with Europe’s economy reeling from the destruction caused by World War II, Europe’s leaders lifted their eyes above daily hardships to shape a more hopeful future, underpinned by European integration. That same vision and foresight is needed today, and the European Union, with its unmatched ability to facilitate regional cooperation, will remain essential. It is time for Europe’s leaders to break the decades-old habit of pursuing half-baked projects that blunt the symptoms of crises, and to implement real reforms that address the root causes. Only with a new approach – and tangible progress – can solidarity within Europe be regained. Nonetheless, the EU and its institutions remain integral to efforts to respond to challenges that require a united front – challenges like those that Europe faces today.

During the meeting from today, the protesters voted unanimously a resolution through which they state the definitive seizure of all state institutions. “The only salvation of the existence itself of the state Republic of Moldova is the replacement of the current political class, through early elections in democratic conditions, with a government of popular trust, monitored by the UN and the international institutions”, is said in the resolution which is lower.

- com – Hurricane Moldova. Moldova’s Jan. 20 parliamentary vote to approve the new government ended nearly three months of political deadlock in a country that plays an important role in the competition between Russia and the West in the former Soviet periphery. The previous government, led by former Prime Minister Valeriu Strelet, collapsed Oct. 29, 2015 after Strelet lost a no-confidence vote over allegations of corruption. Protesters are still on the premises at the time of this writing, albeit in lesser numbers. Representatives of some smaller pro-West factions, such as the Civil Platform for Dignity and Truth and the party recently formed around former Education Minister Maia Sandu, have also gathered to protest the new government, accusing it of weakness and corruption given its ties to Plahotniuc. In the case of yet another government collapse, early elections probably would be unavoidable and would give Moldova’s pro-Russia elements the chance to stall, if not reverse, Moldova’s efforts to integrate with the European Union.
