The pro-European government in Chisinau has entered a complicated period. Judicial reform has already begun in force and has already generated an internal crisis due to the detention of the prosecutor general, a measure that has been described as too harsh by some analysts, recalling a real "judicial blietzkrieg".

Viceministrul rus de Externe, Andrei Rudenko, aprecia că primii paşi în relaţia cu Rusia ai noului preşedinte de la Chişinău au dat impresia unei anumite 'ambiguităţi'.
Transnistria is Moldova's impossible problem to solve, a problem all the more serious as this state is, right now, ideologically torn, simultaneously being pulled in opposite directions, by the West and Russia.

Russian claims that EU and the USA are allegedly interfering in the parliamentary election in Chișinău, scheduled for July 11.

Chișinău authorities have dismissed this scenario, which they say carries little weight.
The EU has extended an economic lifeline to Transnistria, the underlying idea being that this would help avoid conflict in that region. Russia is no longer Transnistria's main economic partner, but still has considerable levarage in the region.
Transnistria a reprezentat în ultimele trei decenii una dintre cele mai mari enigme din Europa de Est și continuă să fie un studiu de caz aparte, fiind unul dintre primele conflicte înghețate din spațiul ex-sovietic și apoi un model pentru cele ce au urmat în jurul bazinului Mării Negre.
