Fake: Moldova Renounces Transnistria for NATO

Moldova will hand over Transnistria to Russia in return for NATO membership, announced several pro-Kremlin media earlier this month. According to Svobodnaya Pressa, RIA Novosti, Izvestia, Lenta.ru and others Moldova will abandon Transnistria if it becomes a stumbling block in its growing cooperation with NATO. And it is none other than the European Union which is forcing Moldova to abandon Transnistria, claims the publication Vesti,  because if it turns out

Why Moldova’s battle against Russian propaganda isn’t what it seems

By Nicolai Paholinitchi, for Open Democracy New legislation banning Russian news from Moldova’s media market seems less about countering disinformation, and more about defending vested interests. Next month, a ban on rebroadcasting Russian news and analysis will come into force in Moldova. The ban, legislated via amendments to the country’s broadcasting code, will apply to all foreign news and analytical programming produced outside the EU, the United States, Canada or

Moldovan Parliament Speaker Passes Law Against Russian Propaganda

By RFE/RL The speaker of Moldova’s parliament, Andrian Candu, has signed legislation appointing seven new government ministers along with a law that bans Russian “media propaganda.” The signings on January 10 took place after Moldova’s Constitutional Court suspended pro-Russia President Igor Dodon’s powers on the issues and ruled that Candu could ratify the legislation, which was proposed by Moldova’s pro-Western government and passed by pro-Western lawmakers in the parliament. The

Kremlin TV: Singing from the same hymn sheet

By East Stratcom “The West is the cause of all problems in the world, whereas Russia is invariably the only source of positive hope”. This is the conclusion of a recent study on the messages from Russian TV channels in Moldova, published by the Association of independent press (API). In spring 2017, API monitored for one month the newscasts, analytical programmes and talk shows of five Russian TV networks that

Richard Grenell: Russia ramps up the propaganda machine

Political insiders in Washington, D.C., have a long history of getting duped by foreigners pushing propaganda. The political agendas of these international players can range from largely innocent parochial issues to calls for U.S. military action to stop an injustice. Or in the case of Russian propagandists, to sway a national election that few people in the West are watching. The costs to governments and individuals affected by an erroneous

Who really rules the airwaves in Moldova?

“With public trust at all time low, we need to examine how murky media ownership threatens pluralism and freedom of speech in Moldova,” – Nadine Gogu wrote for Open Democracy: Last year, Moldova underwent a deep political and social crisis. Around one billion dollars were embezzled from the state’s coffers. Large periods passed without a sitting government, and discord grew within the governing coalition and the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP)

How international media failed Moldova’s protesters

There’s more to Moldova’s protests than “pro-European” versus “pro-Russian”, Mihai Popșoi wrote for Open Democracy. Moldova’s image as the poorest country in Europe is rivaled only by its obscurity. In rare outbursts of international media coverage — often related to human trafficking, arms smuggling or mass protests — Moldova is depicted as a pawn on the regional chessboard, caught in a tug of war between Russia and the west. There is

Russia Media Scaring Moldova with Fake Restitution

Pro-Russian media in Moldova  are spreading  news of the imminent restitution of historical land and property held by Ukrainian citizens to Poland and similarly of Moldovans having to return land and property to Rumania. According to these fake reports, the Association Agreements that both Ukraine and Moldova signed with the European Union in 2014 calls for such restitution. The issue of restitution was raised on the Russian site Eurasia Rhythm

Moldova: Examining the Russian Media Factor in Protests

The ongoing protest in the Moldovan capital Chișinău is posing a fresh test of Russian state-controlled media’s ability to project Kremlin geopolitical preferences. Regional analysts assert that Moscow is viewing the protest as another Western-orchestrated, Euromaidan-like disturbance that constitutes a threat to Russian national interests. Not surprisingly, then, Russian broadcasters and print outlets are striving to shape a news narrative in which the protest is an expression of the population’s
