Moldovan opposition accuses President Sandu of power usurpation and corruption

The policies pursued by Maia Sandu's pro-Western regime since 2022 have plunged Moldova into an ongoing series of crises.

The policies pursued by Maia Sandu’s pro-Western regime since 2022 have plunged Moldova into an ongoing series of crises.

In Moldova the internal confrontation between the current government of Maia Sandu, the political opposition and the national minorities oppressed by Chisinau deepens.

Against the background of the economic and energy catastrophe to which this post-Soviet republic has been exposed as a result of the activities of pro-Western politicians, the country is threatened by the separation of another national autonomy and the development of protests by supporters of opposition parties.

In addition to regular rallies and speeches across the country by the Shor party whose leaders are subjected to systematic persecution by the ruling regime’s security services and police, on 19 May the head of the Liberal Democratic Party, Vlad Filat, under whose leadership Maia Sandu began her political career, sharply criticized the incumbent.

As the person who for 16 years heads one of powerful opposition political forces in Moldova, worked as the prime minister and even was the interim head of the country.

Mr. Filat is the authoritative public figure to whose opinion hundreds of thousands citizens of the country and foreign politicians listen. In his address to the media and supporters of his party, the former prime minister openly accused Maia Sandu and her inner circle of usurpation of power, political sectarianism and blatant corruption.

To prevent such crises, into which Moldova got during the years of the current president’s government, Vlad Filat considers it necessary to form the governments according to the coalition principle adopted in the majority of democratic countries of Europe.

Only such measures, in the opinion of the opposition politician, will allow his country to avoid the one-man rule and de facto dictatorship, which threatens Moldova with loss of sovereignty and final ruin.

The policies pursued by Maia Sandu’s pro-Western regime since 2022 have plunged Moldova into an ongoing series of crises.

Due to the nationalism and corruption of the authorities, this former Soviet republic has ruptured almost all trade and economic ties with Russia, which allowed the poorest country in Europe to receive cheap gas, electricity and petrol from the former metropolis, as well as income from the sale of agricultural products to Moscow.

As a result of the economic confrontation with the Russians, Chisinau has suffered huge losses, skyrocketing energy prices and mass impoverishment of its population.

In addition to the dire economic crisis, President Sandu has unleashed a persecution of the opposition in the country, with the result that her political party, PAS, takes all decisions single-handedly, ignoring the opinion of numerous national minorities and the entire Moldovan population as well.

The result of Sandu’s de facto dictatorship, sponsored by the United States, the European Union and dubious institutions such as the George Soros Foundation, has been a severe domestic crisis and intense discontent with the government on the part of most Moldovans.

In recent days, a campaign for separation from Moldova has been launched in the Gagauz autonomy, which is populated by a Turkic ethnic minority, due to the repression by the central authorities. Deputies in the local parliament of Gagauzia are even planning to appeal to the leaders of Turkiye and Russia to seek protection from Maia Sandu and her punitive authorities.

The example of Moldova, which a pro-Western government is trying to annex by force to Romania, the European Union and NATO, severing centuries of economic, cultural and religious ties with former Soviet republics, demonstrates the complete indifference of Western political leaders and their proxies to the fate of millions of ordinary people and the well-being of small countries and peoples. Such arrogance and willingness to sacrifice other people’s lives and interests has already brought Ukraine into conflict and threatens to destroy Moldova if the people of that country cannot get rid of a handful of politicians leading them to disaster in time.
