"Last day of this month. It's one 21 on WTO P. Glad you're with us, this early morning. Now to the latest of the war this morning, Russia's missile strikes on Ukraine or taking a heavy toll, but apparently Moldova is getting hammered as well, but in a different way. This morning, WTO national security correspondent JJ green with the latest detail. Moldova is in a very interesting situation, and it's got two problems. And is currently the only bordering country of Ukraine that is not an EU member and is also not a member of NATO's. Meredith widmer is the spouse of a State Department employee that's based in Moldova. Moldova's other problem is that nearly all of its power lines flow through Ukraine. So the strikes on Ukraine's power grid have led to blackouts across Moldova and their warnings of more outages in the coming days. Historically, Moldova has had a complicated past being a former Soviet country. And those complications are expected to last throughout the winter and to get worse before they get better. The fighting is really unrelenting and Ukraine is apparently expecting another wave of Russian missile strikes. How are they preparing for that? And do they have any idea when that will happen? This is the 288th day of this war. Every day for Ukraine has been a hard day. They've been under constant missile strikes, drone attacks, constant casualties, thousands of adults have been killed hundreds of children have been killed because of these missile strikes. They've grown to expect them. So each day, since this war began on February 24th, they've added a weapon or two here or there in some cases, large groups of weapons, big weapons, to get to where they are today. A country with a formidable defense against Russia's army. So they did all this because they just don't know when Russia is going to strike or how big or how bad it's going to be. So we don't know

Europe's energy crisis raises firewood prices, theft fears

Not Defeat, Not Victory, But a Third Scenario...

"Right, Jim, so here's the third scenario. And I look at not just the patterns of life for Vladimir Putin and his background as a KGB colonel and not a very good one because you don't get posted to East German if you're good. You get posted to London or Paris or Washington. I look at the region. I look at the Eastern Europe and I see a pattern I see many, I see multiple so called frozen conflicts. So there doesn't have to be, hey, we won, or you lost, he could just play for the mess with the Ukrainians long enough until it gets into some quasi status, a stasis of a no man's land, whether it's Moldova, the mysteria, South Ossetia. That could be another scenario. Well, I mean, that's been the strategy all along is to have these conflicts. So it's literally a button he can push any time. Whether it's in the Balkans or in Moldova or in Georgia, or in Ukraine. Having said that, he has said he wanted to conquer Ukraine. And that's failing. And not only is it failing is he's losing ground. And when you get down to the core of this strategic core, which is Crimea, right? The one thing he literally can not afford to lose. That would be a complete number. But geographically, it's much easier to hold on to Crimea. Yes, it's very, very difficult for the Ukrainians to take that. So the question is, yeah, he can fight another day, right? And you would say, well, the sensible guy would do that. But I have to be honest with you, I don't know if he's being sensible or not, right?

"Exercising in Moldova demonstrating capability to Moldova, putting aircraft in the air above Moldova and airspace in order to demonstrate that NATO is ready to protect it. And frankly, anything else is just words. But can Moldova be equipped in the way that Ukraine has been or is Moldova's military and indeed Moldova's population simply too small to allow that to be done effectively. Do you actually need to have personnel on the ground? Clearly, it's apples and pears, this mold over in Ukraine. But nevertheless, I mean, Moldova is a small country. It is one of the poorest countries in Europe. But with the right targeted assistance to the Moldovan armed forces, training equipment, appropriate for the size and scale. You could produce a very useful capability in Moldova as well, but it would not be enough on its own to deter a Russian invasion. Well, let's think a bit about some of those other post Soviet territories you mentioned. Georgia, in particular, is one which has long held aspirations for being part of the western security architecture, is that something you think does need to be sped up. And I guess the follow on question to that is how practical an option is that when Russia continues to occupy a couple of portions of Georgia in the form of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. And then I have to say I've had a one 80° turn on my thinking on Georgia. I thought in 2007 that it was a promise too much for NATO to promise membership of NATO to both Georgia and Ukraine because there was no political prospect of NATO backing it up with a sort of capabilities required. Given where we are now, given Putin's long-term intent, given that there will never be peace in Europe while Putin or a Putin type regime is in the Kremlin, so we have to think long term generational challenge here. The only guarantee for Georgian security is for it to be part of NATO. We should not be frightened by the fact that Russia occupies 20% of Georgian territory in south Osaka. I would say do it as a theater company and speed it up. And now is a time of opportunity to bring them under the NATO umbrella while Russia is so bogged down and so fixed in Ukraine that it simply couldn't do anything about it if NATO did that. The reality of the bureaucracy of NATO membership and the challenges of NATO membership, which of course we're seeing with Sweden and Finland's entry and the way the Turks are blocking it. It doesn't happen overnight. The so what out of that exactly the same from Moldova bilateral security arrangements guarantees from countries like Britain, France, America, to guarantee Georgian security.

"Avoid most of all. That was Alexandria flanker Moldova's former deputy prime minister for reintegration do stay with us. You're listening to the foreign desk with me Andrew Muller. Finally, on today's show, I'm joined by general sir Richard sheriff, who served as NATO's deputy supreme allied commander Europe from 2011 to 2014, sir Richard, first of all, let's put you in a different role for a moment on the other side of the fence. If you were looking at this from Russia's perspective, militarily. Do you think that taking a swipe at Moldova would make any sense at all from Russia's perspective? Putting ourselves in the mind of the man Vladimir Vladimir Putin. And the answer is, from his perspective, if he was able to do so, it would absolutely make sense to take a swipe at Moldova and Georgia as well and probably Kazakhstan. His long-term vision is to reassemble the Russian Empire. And that means not only removing Ukraine from the map effectively, but also including those or other former Soviet republics of Moldova specifically, as you mentioned, but also Georgia. But if we look at Moldova specifically, would that potentially follow a similar pattern to what we've seen in Ukraine because in many respects they do seem quite similar, obviously Moldova is much smaller and we will come back to the implications of that, but you already have this pre established bridgehead if you will for Donbass and Ukraine read Transnistria in Moldova. Absolutely. But of course, also in trans and history, you've got Russian so called peacekeeping troops there too. But of course, all that presumes that he's got the means to do so. And right now he hasn't got the means to do so. What kind of means would you need though if you were interested in launching yourself at Moldova because clearly one of the difficulties that Russia is having in Ukraine is that Ukraine is absolutely enormous and Moldova really very much is not. You're not going to need a lot to gobble up Moldova if you're Putin because of course exactly as you say, it's not the size of Ukraine and therefore a significant smaller military force would be able to do so. But even that is probably beyond him at the moment. He's made virtually no progress in the last couple of months. The Ukrainians are hitting back quite successfully. His supply lines are stretched. His manpower is extremely stretched. So I think the probability of other attack on Moldova right now is fairly low. But nevertheless, it exists.

"And I think for now, for us, if the Moscow and the Kremlin, the socialists are one of the key partners in Moldova. The socialists have never openly supported Russia's aggression against Ukraine. However, their message has been Moldova should preserve constitutional neutrality in this particular case by not taking sides and by not supporting your crane and by extension the west, but rather finding common language with Russia. It would appear that people in the Kremlin also touch possible of life. Because they're strongest opposition for ally. I want to come back to that issue of Moldova's constitutional neutrality because it's obviously become quite important in the current circumstances, but you said earlier that people in Moldova were getting used to living next door to the war as you put it, but that notwithstanding has anything changed in Moldova noticeably since February 24th is Moldova taking or trying to take any kind of precautions. Not political unfortunate. Politically, little if anything has changed. Moldova's constitution was adopted back in 1994 and one of the constitutional clauses is that mobile permanent neutrality and can not join any military alliances. And that has been unchangeable since then and until February 24th of this year. Unfortunately, that also means that there has never been a genuine broad public discussion about mobile security options, but how do we ensure our country's security short term midterm so long term? And that has an explanation because since the collapse of the Soviet Union since the end of the wars in the Balkans in 1995, there has been a project of peace and stability in Europe and nobody was willing to revisit the arrangements that existed. Now, when Russia's aggression against Ukraine has canceled all of this, there is no peace. There is no stability. And there is no balance of power. And this, I think, provides us an opportunity to revisit our security arrangements and security options. Again, this could be done even within the confessional neutrality, but I think genuine broad public discussion is needed to reflect whether or not most of us should preserve its neutrality at all. Do you see indications then of Moldova's current government trying to find a way around that constitutional neutrality we saw, I think, earlier, Russia banning the import of fruit from Moldova after there was suggestions that Moldova's prime minister had asked NATO to begin supplying Moldova with weapons. To be very, very honest, I don't think there was an explicit call to military resistance to Moldova because the assistance that the west more specifically, the youth would be European is facility. And the French government, the pledges that they have made the French in particular 40 million year award of military equipment. But all of these equipment is non laptop. So this is obviously intended to enhance resilience and not over security. But again, we're not talking about weapons. And I think the greatest concern here. And this is in the back of everyone's mind in Moldova is that people, I mean, the broader public in general and the government more specifically, a word that Russia could overreact to any military assistance provided to Moldova. By the west. And then again, in the back of their minds, everyone understands the Moldova were to denounce its neutrality and openly state the desire to join NATO, what will happen is that Russian troops would pop up on one government soil way before any NATO force would. Generations of grandparents and great great parents witnessed Russia's neutral occupation back in 1940 and then the 1944 again deportation gulag and Moldovan know and modern remember what Russia's so called liberation is in fact.

"Listening to the foreign desk on monocle 24 and joining me now from chisinau is alexandru flanker, former deputy prime minister for reintegration for the government of the republic of Moldova. Alexandria, first of all, what is your sense of how concerned Moldova's current government is about the prospect of some sort of Russian or Russian backed military operation against Moldova. Well, the government is obviously concerned the prime minister herself said publicly in one of her recent interviews is that they are concerned. They are considering all options. However, again, the government deployed minister the prime minister and the president said on a number of occasions that as of now they see no imminent risk of Russian military. But is there evidence or are people concerned there's evidence of either preparations for an attack or at least of Russian meddling in Moldova either through its presence in Transnistria or elsewhere in the country? There is no direct indication that Russia would attack Moldova anytime soon and I think the Ukrainians take the credit for this because they're holding Russia back in eastern and southern Ukraine. How are people did you concern and where it did not panic in the first week of the war? When the war still over effect and possible Russian news red attack did seem to be imminent. Since then, things have changed. However, people are still worth it. I mean, people have sort of got used to living with the war next door. But nevertheless, they still received Russia's threat. Ross and medley, yes, to be honest at this point, I think Russia would be more inclined to use political leverage to obtain some sort of government change in Moldova and obtain a loyal Moldova, rather than attack it neutral and face new sanctions and possible harsher pushback from the web. to pick that point up, what kind of political leverage does Russia have in Moldova are there, politicians or political parties, or sections of the public which are quite sympathetic to Russia? The largest opposition party, the Socialist Party, which was removed from power by the incumbent ruling party and by president milestones of which has always been leaning towards Russia.

"This is meaningless. But at the same time, as valeri said, the schools, the media there is constantly doubling this kind of propaganda and this idea that transnistrians are different from the rest of moldovans that they are the constant victims and moldovans killed them in the 1992 war between the two parts of the river nestra. I mean, in the consciousness of the young people there, the Soviet kind of paraphernalia doesn't really play a big part at all. It's more like decor and the kind of historical monuments that you would get anywhere else. But at the same time, the system of education there is still very Soviet and it still preserves a lot of the tropes of Soviet education. And it's more authoritarian than the system of education. The rest of Moldova, for instance. If I might add very short to that, this is actually an appearance and the result of a nonexistent modernization in the last 30 years that you'll have a lot of conserved spaces and buildings from the Soviet time and not the proper continuation of the Soviet Union because in 90s and even now and later that was a space of a very wild capitalism in an illegal sphere without a proper control and a system of check and balances and as a result of this wild capitalism they got their one single monopoly company big holding which controls almost everything retail, energy sphere, communications, politics, I mean the so called parliament and so called president, which is affiliated to one single private holding, which is called Sharif company. So this is probably the most weird part in that that on one hand, it looks like incredible how you can combine the Soviet legacy and this Soviet nostalgia with this wild capitalist, but just look on Russia where they continue to combine the Soviet legacy, Soviet mythology and with the Russian imperial mythology and narratives and

"And a lot of young people who are looking for opportunities are looking towards kishino and before the war they were looking towards or desa as well because that's very close to get us Poland Transnistria. And more recently, there has been a shift in the interest of young people in Transnistria away from Moscow and towards the west. So more people are going to check republic or chipotle in order to study there or to work there. Would you say there is any kind of coherent national identity among transnistrians distinct from Moldova in the way that I don't know people here in the UK might describe themselves as Scottish or Welsh before they describe themselves as anything else to people who live in Transnistria think of themselves as transnistrian citizens first and foremost. Well, no, it's a total mess and confusion in people's minds created by all this permanent information tax on their minds and toxic Soviet type propaganda, which tends to convince these people that they are something like Soviet people steal even more than 30 years after the fall of Soviet Union. And of course, this narrative changed a little bit in last, I would say ten years, and it switched to so called Russian word, which has to include all the boss Slavic and non Slavic population on the former territory of Soviet Union. So which is the actual goal of the Russian propaganda first is to confuse people. And confuse people are easy to manipulate and to use in the Russian specific goals as wars or destabilization in the region and so on. You can add. So ethnically actually Transnistria is like 60% Russian speaking and about 40% Romanian speaking and actually Putin and the Russian authorities talk about defending the rights and Russian speakers outside Russian borders, but actually in Transnistria is the Romanian speakers who are getting discriminated all the time. The Russian is the only language used in the public services and also Romanian language schools have been closed since the 90s and the few remaining ones are constantly harassed. So the kids that have to go into kindergartens and use very tiny desks, for instance, you know, because there is no proper space for them to just be involved in the process of education and there were sittings in the 2000s where dozens of kids were just sitting in front of their school for 40 days sleeping in there with their parents and their teachers because they didn't want their schools to be shut. Just to follow that up, Paolo, before the last few months at least Transnistria only really used to appear on news bulletins or at least in Western European media as kind of a punchline in travel sections. It gets written up and depicted as this sort of Soviet theme park the last place in the world you can go and still see these glorious mosaics of Lenin staring into the middle distance and hammer and sickle motifs emblazoned on anything. How accurate is that really this idea of Transnistria is a sort of Soviet theme park and how seriously do the people who live there take any of that. I like the comparison to a Soviet theme park because this is exactly what it feels like when you go there. And actually, if you think about it economically, Transnistria is a monopoly. It's more like some small town in America that's only dominated by one business. This is what Transnistria is like at the moment, plus it has a lot of illegal trade because it's an unrecognized state. And so Moldova doesn't control transnistrian borders and so there's a lot of illegal trade, so a lot of oligarchs from Russia, for instance, but also from the region would use Transnistria in order to get to the so economically.

"Transnistria or as it enjoys calling itself the predecessor moldavian republic. Paola, I'll start with you. Is there a quick way to explain how Transnistria happened? Well, I mean, it's quite helpful to think of Transnistria as basically a Russia's way of keeping an influence on Moldova. So Transnistria was part of the USSR before the rest of Moldova was occupied by the Soviet Union. So since the 20s rather than after the Second World War, and then when Moldova tried to reach independence, reach autonomy at first and then independence in the late 80s and the early 90s, Moscow basically wasn't very happy with this move away from them and Moldova's kind of more openness towards Romania and even ideas about reuniting with Romania. So this is basically where the conflict between Transnistria and Moldova has started basically the regime and Transnistria wants to stay close to Moscow. Since the late 80s, early 90s, whereas the rest of Moldova wanted to become more independent and to move away from Russia. Paula, what is the relationship between Transnistria and Moldova proper like now? Is there any kind of cooperation between the governments? Is it possible to travel from one to the other back and forth? Yeah, it's possible to travel from one to the other, but you need to kind of pass this so called customs and have IDs on you. So there is collaboration between the Moldovan government and the transnistrian authorities. And for instance, since the war in Ukraine broke out, Transnistria lost a lot of its trade that it did with Ukraine. And so the Moldovan authorities have actually cooperated with transnational authorities in order to redirect the trade via Moldovan customs. And even beyond that, the transnistrian population is very integrated in Moldova. For instance, almost everyone has Moldovan papers, so live in the passports. And also a lot of people work in kishino because there are more jobs here. So they would commute every day back to Transnistria.

"It is possible to look at Moldova as Ukraine on a smaller scale. The parallels are not precise, but there is enough to be going on with. Like Ukraine, Moldova was once part of the Soviet Union. Like Ukraine, Moldova has seen a portion of its territory hived off by a Russian proxy regime for Donbass, Reed Transnistria. And like Ukraine, Moldova is unprotected by membership of the EU or NATO. Since Russia attacked Ukraine on February 24th, there has been concern that Moldova might also be in Moscow's sites, with the weird, unrecognized statelet of Transnistria as a bridgehead for invasion. All summer various Moldovan institutions, government buildings, churches, hospitals, and airports have been the subject of bomb threats. So far, mercifully empty. But there are fears that this campaign is some sort of psyops prelude to more destructive disruption. Defending Moldova is a stiff challenge geographically militarily and legally. Moldova is tiny, landlocked has only a few thousand troops and no air force to speak of and is constitutionally obliged to neutrality. Russia already has troops inside Moldova's borders. The Russian military presence in Transnistria is estimated at around 1700 strong. How threatened is Moldova? Should the rest of Europe act now to shore it up, and if so, how? And how did Transnistria get there anyway? This is the foreign desk. The transnistrian regime

What More Can NATO Do to Protect Moldova?

"We have seen the headlines that in Moldova, there is this breakaway region transitoria, which you've probably been to since you've been to everywhere in the world, or you've been close to it. And I'm curious as to whether or not you think NATO ought to be doing the Moldova what I wish they had done Vis-à-vis Ukraine 6 months ago, which is to begin to forward positions supplies that Moldova will need if they become Putin's next target. I know that's three moves down the board, but we to be equipping Moldova to do what Ukraine has done. Is there enough time to do that? Yes and yes. And a third guess would be I have been to Moldova. I've been to the capitol, just now and I've been around the country. I've been on the border, if you will, it's kind of a faux border between Moldova proper in this transcend history, which is the breakaway segment that Russia is in control of. I think it would be prudent to increase level of NATO activity with Moldova and when I was supreme allied commander 8, 9 years ago, we were doing so. We had a very partnership level relationship with Moldova as a general proposition and we'll go then. So you kind of look toward Romania as a partner nation.

Robert Spaulding Speaks to the Complexity of a No-Fly Zone in Ukraine

"Rob, can you talk to us about the complexity of what I know flames that fly zone is or would be in Ukraine or western Ukraine, how it would work, who would have to fly it and whether it's feasible. Well, I think, you know, in terms of executing it, it's feasible. You have to understand where your staging out of. In this case, there might not be airfields in Ukraine to stage out of there for your staging out of the nations that border the Ukraine, which then creates the question are you bringing those nations directly into the conflict because you're flying combat sorties out of those airfields. The other thing you have is you have tankers that are very vulnerable. You have a wax that are very vulnerable in addition on the battlefield within Ukraine. You have mobile surface to air missile systems that you have to be concerned about. So we can do it. The problem is, do you want to do it? And the question is here, we have to get back to understanding what the Cold War was about. It was not a we did not go directly in the military confrontation or conflict with the Soviet Union because of the danger of escalating to nuclear war. The closest we came in terms of a confrontation that where somebody was encroaching encroaching on our territory was the Cuban missile crisis. There's others that were in 84 where we had we were doing an exercise and there's a belief that Soviets mistook and thought that they were going to be under attack, but the Cuban missile crisis is really the closest corollary to Ukraine. Do you want to put U.S. or NATO forces into direct support of a no fly zone when you can have direct conflict with Russian aircraft? And the answer is, in my opinion, is no. And the reason is because you can't have an escalation to nuclear conflict. We have to get into the mindset that this is not going to be over in Ukraine. It may not be over in Moldova. It may extend broader, it may not be over just in Europe, the Chinese could move in Asia. So we need to begin to take a step back, take a pause and understand that we are in a long-term competition for the survival of

Even though they have plenty of vaccine and they have lots of infrastructure because the countries are bombarded every day with Russian disinformation, saying all kinds of crazy. But use the technical phrase in the break. You said, because the Russians of Boston's. Right. Exactly. Because here's the Russians aren't doing this because they have questions about the vaccines or they want because they're not mandatory in these countries. They're doing it because they want to make these countries as ungovernable as possible. So trying to destabilize. This is what I said. We used to teach together. At these JPM EVs, military institutions, if you just want to understand Russia today, all you need is all I used to say is it is an anti status co actor. They just want to stir. Wherever it is, Middle East, eastern, they just want to stir, right? Just to see what can I get out of it? Destabilize. Because and they're getting people killed.

She was in a moldy apartment in chicago worked at a moldy hotel in we waited nine months after her moving out to test. Her and her levels were through the roof.

Conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccine reach church leaders

"Moldova. Yeah Moldova Shirt Moldova right. It's a church that I'm going to be talking about. Oh or I should say. The Orthodox Church in Moldova has denounced the potential covid vaccine as an anti-christian plot. Oh Yeah Oh yeah yeah. They're they're getting they're getting out there. Quick early good. They wanted to stay ahead of these things. Oh yeah absolutely. Do you know they say that it's a satanic plan microchip people and at least to introduce other foreign devices into the human body and this is so just like straight down the standard conspiracy theory line believable. Let's see they can't. This was a press release right from the Church success. Global Anti Christian system wants to introduce microchips into people's bodies with whose help they can control them through five g technology. The claim that Bill Gates you know of course everybody gates. He's new anti Christ. Once Obama left office and disappointingly wasn't the Anti Christ They find one quick. They've been looking trying. Different people on is but gates guy. Yeah so he's apparently the one behind creating this microchip technology And died they plan on introducing into the population through a covid vaccine? The the statement says quote vaccination introduces nanoparticles into the body. The react to the waves transmitted by five G. Technology and allow the system to control humans remotely. Wow what in the fuck where? It's what it's amazing. Listen there was a there was an article that came out. I actually talked about this on How TO HURTIG? There was an article that came out that said that forty percent of United States Republicans believe. That's true then the whole thing. There's like you know not necessarily the five G. or the whatever but like the Bill Gates is going to try and like Mo- microchip forty percent of Republicans in the US. Believe God this is just all somebody like Alex Jones has to do is just like think it up say and then everybody believes it whether this came directly from him or not but like his he did. He started he. Actually you did. He never never never mind any of that like this. Is I don't understand these conservative Christian types who are seemingly like what what what do they have against medical intervention and protecting themselves against something that maybe wouldn't hurt them specifically very much but that on a grand scale is going to hurt a lot of people. I'll tell you why not be part of the solution instead of and like the an seriously it's anything that comes down the pike with with covid nineteen. They're dead set against any of helping them. Whether it's masks of social distancing like Christianity is just better than that and it's like Yuck is wrong with you people because they're covered in Christ's blood which is so much better and they're they're safe there. It's all just a hoax anyway. Yeah unfortunately there's a far too much on the Internet and far too little far too few people who are able to actually think their way to Healthy thinking about anything these days so mask and why to me. What did T mobile do? How did they up well? I think that was another non. Somebody somebody just said. Hey Watch out for five G. The they're putting their crazy like. Why are you towers are being installed like what was it? And then at somebody just said it and all they have to say it and then everybody loses their goddamn minds. They're being trained to not believe any official story. That comes out so excited. They believe that what I don't understand is if you if you if you're so like unwilling to believe anything right that's real. What is it about the most crazy the most insane thing imaginable? Why is that the one you pick? Yeah have you read their book because I read a lot of their book? And it's like if you believe in that book than you expect crazy like that's how you think the is supposed to work is like insane machinations and evil coming from every every corner of the earth and so you see a five.

"I like to welcome to the show Christina Lescot from a finding elevation dot com which is a mindfulness website but she is also also from Moldova. Originally and come to talk to us about her home country original home country country of origin. Moldova Christina welcome to the show so much for having me Chris I feel like I could possibly said that more awkwardly but the I think that was awkward enough you so you were born in Moldova. But don't live there now. Yes I was born and raised and I laughed when I was nineteen and I'm currently in Canada so I will wear Moldova. I'm not sure that everybody could even put it on a map. Yeah that's a very valid question and fraud years. I was just thinking I should just make a card in every time I introduced myself someone. Just keep them the card hard and they're like. Hey this is where it is because the second question when everybody finds out at them from all the ways where is that so quite used to it already. has anyone anyone ever accused you of making up a country not yet detail. kind of thinking might happen in future. But it's actually in Ulster era. Settle in right next to Ukraine and Romania. So it's a very small country. Okay and in fact as I went to mispronounce ear name you had to tell me the Romanian pronunciation of it so the language there at least the language you spoke was Romanian. Yes we do. I have a few letters that are not used to the American side. Have a few extra letters in our alphabet that we're using it quite often and then why should someone travel to Moldova Raw. First of all would be because nobody really goes there. Technically if you're looking for for a country that it's still very cultural and it's still not tainted by tourism because tourism tends to when people go to one country and they go so in massive numbers the culture kind of gets lost in between in Moldova. Everything is quiet of people go and they see how it is this in this point in time without having to many tourists. So you won't have to deal with very high prices and generally you'll be discovering in culture that you've never really experienced before so if you're the person for looking for going to places that people don't usually go to Moldova as a really crepe place to start and we're talking about as you said a small country about I was just looking at two hundred ninety times smaller than the US us to take a whole year to visit all of Moldova. What would you recommend? We do. Say A one week itinerary. Okay so so you'll definitely be landing in the capital which is canal sue Maybe about two hundred thousand or five hundred thousand people. Oh it's very developed. It's very beautiful so there's a lot of neighborhoods to go around now. There are a lot of popular places in kitchen now. So the the main plays up people go to would be the cathedral and the Stephan the great wanting to which is right in the center of the capital capital and where you have the National Park Swell so technically. This is the main street in the center. This is where they new year's facilities are happening so y Stephan. The Great Park is important. Because he was I would say he was like a king in our country. We call it like a ruler. So he won a lot of bottles and every bottle he won. He would build the monastery. So we have a lot of monasteries in our country that would be if you're going directly to to the center of the city so this everything closed by you just take taxi. Were Public Transit. I would definitely challenge you to it from from there. My second favorite place in the capital that you should definitely try it out and go would be the place that we celebrate at the end of the war so dot would be cold the memorial complex attorney. It's also in the center kind of maybe maybe a twenty minutes drive from the center of the city still in the capital. It's one of my favorite places in kitchen house. So this is a place where we commemorate the veterans and every year the stability's for the the end of World War Two happened there and we also have an eternity fire. So there's a fire there. That never goes away. It's always protected by the military. So you can just go around. And there's different monuments and very beautiful sculptures in parks and it's kind of like a major park. Can you can just go there during the day and see it. Now we're too had other changes on Moldova's Moldova as I understand it became part of the USSR at the end of work too. So that is significant for why Moldova exists map as a separate country now is that it was part of Romania before the war part of the USSR until it gained its independence. Much more recently. That happened in one thousand nine hundred one. And that was I would say there's a big change to Moldova's cultural identity and identity in general especially language so we speak Romanian. But because we were a part of your czar We actually had our language colds curious so technically people would when they arrive they were right or million words but with Russian alphabet and also a lot of people will speak Russian so right now Moldova bovine is bilingual. And I would say it's seats at a good fifty fifty percent like if you go there you do very well refreshing language. You'll what else do very well in any language so even with my grandparents or so. They're more verse in Russian Than Me. I speak Romanian Iranian cameleon language however my grandparents They would write in curiel a car. They would not try Romanian. So that's a significant skinned difference. I'm we should point out for people who are not linguis- which I think is probably most of us. That Romanian and Russian are not in the same family group at all Romanian. Being a romance languages closer to French for instance and Russian is a Slavic language. So that's that's quite different to know this you it's Knowing Spanish and French or something like that they are completely different languages and I would say just. The war had such a big impact on us so we grew up with Russian influence. Russian music movies so I would say right now. There is obviously attention between Westernising Housing and going to the West. So it's always kind of Moldova is just in the middle and doesn't really know which way to go. The country just tear east has just had had part of it annexed by Russia as they try and get the band back together. So yeah I would think there'd be some some tension there so where else should we go after you've seen the city which there's a lot more places you obviously there's a lot of neighborhoods. I'm going to be biased entirely. Okay my favorite neighborhood is China. And that's because that is the place I spend my childhood in just walked in the streets and going to the local market it and discovering the people and there's a big alley that goes for quite a few blocks so usually when I was small. My parents would take me out there and we just walk doc do in the evenings on that massive Allie from one side to the other. There's a lot of restaurants and stores that you can check out this well and while you are in the center of the city definitely definitely try. Our cuisine. Moldova is very popular for having their a traditional food. which for me was kind of a difference because when I came to Canada was looking for traditional food but I couldn't really find it because we are so specific jake like we do have traditional food and every time we go away? We always crave it so we have like different restaurants and places we can go and buy. And I. Don't know Moldovan traditional food so it's going to be similar more similar Romanian. I'm assuming then Slavic so I'm not talking about the noodle dumplings swings and things like that. I'm talking about more stews actually. It's our traditional. Food is Komal Ga.. which is very great? Is this made off cornflower in. Eat It with your hands along with cottage

Explainer 169: What is going on in Moldova?

"Moldova's forays into the headlines are rare explainer seeking to explain Moldova should probably therefore start with the basics. It's just next to the top, right hand corner of Romania alongside the border with Ukraine population, three million and change about the same size as Belgium independent since the collapse of the Soviet Union in one thousand nine hundred ninety one. If you have read or heard much about Moldova before, now it has probably been about the part of Moldova that wishes it wasn't part of Moldova. This is the strange geopolitical normally of the Preakness strove, Ian Maldivian Republic, better known as Transnistria a sliver of land squeezed between the Dniester river and Ukraine, which operates as a sort of Soviet Russia theme park. Transnistria still erect statues of Lenin flies. The hammer and sickle on its flag and has become a staple destination for chortling travel. Writings. Also in the least visited country in Europe. The fact is that more people visit my local Tesco every day, the visit Moldova every year, but it is in Moldova proper, where curious things are refute this week to the extent that as we go to where it's not entirely clear who if anyone is roaming the country. A Russia, this question has been imported for one society for years. And these elections are out exception through main players through Bharti's that will likely for the parliament, socialist party that has pro Russian Democratic Party that is rather for your being Italy formed position. Block are Coon, that is strongly, breer, opinion of these. Its roots in Moldova's, most recent general election back in February. It was a close run thing, the pro Russian socialist party finished first, but the pro e u Democratic Party and a alliance finished a close second and third respectively. Nobody had a parliamentary majority. Confusing matters further, where plausible allegations of vote-buying ballot stuffing and other shenanigans largely on the part of the socialists. Disdain to happen, and then people will regain their trust in the country, and then we'll start building democracy will strengthen the state's accuses which would what for citizens and not for some could be. After some months of inconclusive wrangling, this past weekend, the pro Russian socialists and the pro e u a alliance agreed to form an unlikely governing coalition to be led by the alliance's, Maya Sandhu previously, Moldova's minister for education, who would become prime minister Moldova's eighth prime minister this decade, the country is no stranger to political crisis. Cutting us Ohka. Tara. The legality of this arrangement was challenged by Democratic Party leader and Feltham, Leslie wealthy oligarch Vlad to blow hot New York v socialists and ako headed knitted that the principal common core's was preventing plot New York becoming any more powerful in Moldova than he already is plot. New York claimed vade narrowly missed the ninety day deadline for the certification of election results to form a new government, and that president eagle, Dodon himself, allied to the socialists, should therefore, have called new elections, Moldova's constitutional court known to be heavily staffed by associates of plot New York. Agreed with this interpretation of a technicality. Suspended president Dodon and replaced him with previous prime Minister Pavel Filip of Vlad, plot nukes, Democrats, as temporary acting president, Philip dissolved parliament and Cole. New elections for September sixth. But president Dodon Andy socialist ako alliance have refused to recognize this directive, this meant that by Sunday, roughly everybody in Moldova had grounds for suspecting nefarious hidden forces had enacted, a coup, d'etat against their preferred party by Monday, the socialist coalition. And the Democratic Party were each acting like they were in charge conducting Simitis rival cabinet meetings in Chisinau, Moldova's capital, Maya Sanders ministers met in parliament, parvo Phillips, in government house, students of history, will be aware of how will having to governments at once usually works out for a country. As to what happens in the days and weeks ahead, the only reasonable hope is, as little as possible, obscure local difficulties in this part of Europe have had a habit of spreading Russia, which has fifteen hundred troops. I'd like next door in Transnistria says it backs the socialist ako coalition. The US the EU and NATO have issued cagey statements calling for restraint dialogue and so on, but essentially respecting the February election results, and therefore, the socialist Achim coalition. There are some causes for up to mizzen the socialist Achim coalition is effectively, a government of national unity yoki together Moldova's pro Russian conservative forces. And it's pro e u center. Right. Which means it has support among all dove is all the generations, and it's younger urban middle classes as well as from Moscow and Brussels, it does in theory command, a handy, parliamentary majority. And if it has taken a stand on the principle, that one businessman shouldn't get to run an entire country. That surely cannot be a thing. From twenty four I'm from.

Tom, Turkey And NCR discussed on The Indicator from Planet Money

"Today is a very good day. Because today Darius we get to talk about new Tele Finally, I mean, I love new Tele I know you love new Bella. I mean, everybody loves new talents to love. But by supply of this beloved embrose, you'll chocolate paste, you could be under threat Stacey. And it's because of something that gives new Tele its characteristic flavor hazelnuts. Yes, he's nuts. Have a problem. A serious supply bottleneck more than seventy percent of the world's hazelnuts come from one place from Turkey. In fact, a quarter of the world's as on. That's come from just this one tiny town in Turkey, and that of course, leaves production and new Tele lovers everywhere very vulnerable. Right. I mean just a few years ago. There was an unexpected frost and Turkey that wiped out a huge chunk of the crop. And prices jumped like sixty percent and threatened a worldwide. Tele shortage that's like the fifth horseman of the apocalypse pestilence. Plague no new tell. And I mean, even in the best of times Turkey is, you know, a little bit of an unreliable Rulli. Turkish lira goes up and down the price of hazelnuts can fluctuate accordingly, and it, you know, it just leaves Packers and producers on the hook. But luckily for us one man is on the case today the show how one man's lifelong obsession with easel. Nets could help save new Tele and revolutionized an entire global industry.

NCR silver is simple to use saves. You time and helps you reach your goals faster NCR, silver, search NCR silver. I I met biologists. Tom Molnar in his office at the Rutgers University ornamental field lab, he was surrounded by these big plastic Finns just filled with thousands upon thousands of pavements. For example, here's one that has has ridges and lumps and to me. That's that's kind of an ugly looking hazelnut. Whereas something like this here, the really, shiny. And smooth for the past twenty three years. This has been Tom's life. Just sifting through endless piles of hazelnuts in search of that one perfect. Now, we mentioned that the hazelnut industry has a supply problem Turkey has a stranglehold on production. So the obvious solution to that problem would be to find a new place to grow hazelnuts and the east coast of the United States would be perfect perfect growing conditions, except for one thing we would have had a hazelnut industry in the northeast. If it wasn't for eastern Filbert play eastern Filbert plight. It's a fungal disease. It's native to North America. And it it grows under the bark of hazelnut trees, and kind of rots them from the inside infected trees, they develop these tail till cankers on their bark Tom actually took me out to his research orchard and showed me some of them firsthand. So as we look down here, you'll see that there's little fuss Joel's that poke out through. So those are like little mushrooms, those are the fruiting bodies where the scores. Actually be objected from and spread to other trees fruiting body, fungal pustule, go from new talent fruiting bodies. This fungus has been Tom's sworn nemesis for twenty three years that was when he got involved in this ambitious project to develop hazelnuts as this sort of like utopian post climate change food source. Yes. Because hazelnuts in addition to being delicious are this kind of miracle crop there. What is known as a low input crop. Meaning they can grow without irrigation without chemical fertilizers pesticides. And they can grow on. What is called marginal land? Landa would otherwise be useless. Plus, the harvesting of hazelnuts can be mechanized. So it doesn't necessarily require that much labor and a single hazelnut. Tree can be productive for up to a hundred years. The only problem they needed to solve to make this happen to cover the east coast with hazelnut. Trees was eastern Filbert blight and Tom's plan to do that was based on very simple yet revolu. Idea. See his aunts. They've grown naturally all over eastern Europe and central Asia for thousands of years. And so Tom figured that somewhere out there among the many millions of hazelnut trees, the gene for disease resistance that he needed was hiding like a needle in a massive haystack. So he set out to find that gene, we started in Moscow travelled south going through Krasnodar into Sochi and then into Crimea than we flew up to Romania and Moldova. The Poland and Belarus follow that up through the Baltic states Estonia, Latvia Lithuania for seven years, Tom traveled, all over the native hazelnut range collecting specimens, and this was not your typical horticultural fieldwork. I mean, it could involve everything from like haggling with merchants in a bizarre and who's Becca STAN to like sharing a glass of homemade vodka with little old lady at a roadside stand in Crimea once while crossing into Ukraine with eighty pounds of nuts in his suitcase. He. Even got shaken down by the local police they start screaming at me. They start screaming at my colleagues have guns, and this is silly. But at the same time, I had a suitcase full of all the nuts that I so desperately did not want to lose. So I'm nervous about the nuts. I'm nervous. We're gonna get robbed or worse. But you were more worried about the nuts than the money. I was very nervous about the nuts. Those were my babies. Those were his babies band is is really Portas heart and soul into this project. And he knew that in order to make a commercially viable nut. He needed that perfect combination of traits. And so after years of collecting all this genetic material he came back to New Jersey out to his research farm at Rutgers and he got to work breeding. Yeah. Apparently, Tom planted thousands of trees, and then expose them to the eastern Filbert blight and then just waited and season by season. He meticulously catalogued the growth of each individual tree. Taking note of you know, nut quality looking out for signs of disease.
