FAKE NEWS: The Romanian Orthodox Church wants to take over parishes from Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova in order to pave the way for the annexation of territories by Romania

The Romanian Orthodox Church wants to take over parishes of the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova, the pro-Kremlin publication Politnavigator writes. According to the media outlet, the first step in this respect in Ukraine would be for Romania to capture Bukovina, whereas in the Republic of Moldova the Moldovan authorities will abolish the Metropolitanate of Moldova, which is subordinated to the Russian Orthodox Church. The article contains a number of false narratives designed to promote several disinformation theses, for instance Romania allegedly having an expansionist policy and Ukraine being an artificial state.

DISINFORMATION: Chișinău’s war-mongering stirs up concern in Bucharest

DISINFORMATION: Chișinău’s war-mongering stirs up concern in Bucharest

“Romania is worried by Moldova’s war-mongering”, reads a recent false narrative promoted by Russian propaganda and shared by media institutions in Chișinău. The author, a former communist MP, also interposes several false theses, designed to undermine the solidity of Chișinău-Bucharest relations. In fact, Romania remains the top supporter of the Republic of Moldova in the EU, as well as a major trade partner, and irrespective of which political party takes power, it is the first country to support the Republic of Moldova in times of crisis.

Romania intends to annex the Republic of Moldova, including Transnistria and part of the territory of Ukraine, which includes Odesa, but Russia will not allow this, writes a pro-Kremlin publication in an article entitled “Russia will take Moldova along with Iași”. The narratives are false given that, on the one hand, Romania has no territorial claims, and on the other hand, Russia is now mired in Ukraine and does not have the force to change the borders of the states to its liking.
