In search of alternatives to Russian petrol, the West might resort to “smaller Russias”

Europe’s reliance on large energy imports from Russia prevents the adoption of sanctions meant to deprive Moscow of sizable revenues, which it can use to feed its war machine. The West is looking for replacements, but unfortunately these are more often than not “smaller Russias” – authoritarian regimes that also stand accused of violating human rights.

Chisinau’s diplomatic offensive and the sinuous road from image to success

After Maia Sandu and PAS took over the reins of power, Chisinau started a genuine diplomatic offensive. There is openness towards the Republic of Moldova in the western chancelleries, as well as willingness to help, but that is no guarantee for success. A decade ago, the country was in a similar situation, but the failure of the governments that followed eventually led to years of isolation.

Will the pro-European power in Chișinău capitalize on its victory to the benefit of Moldova?

The Republic of Moldova has been presented with a historic opportunity, after pro-European forces, represented by the Action and Solidarity Party (PAS), have secured the Parliament, the Government and the Presidency. The post-Soviet period of transition may now be over, and the pro-European track, which has been in the limelight in Chișinău for three decades, may become irreversible.

SUA and Russia lock horns again: conclusions on the security context in Eastern Europe

The latest tensions between presidents Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin are definitely giving political analysts from all over the world a headache, as they try to decrypt the discourses of the two presidents and somehow foresee where they’re leading. The United States and Russia have a number of imporant topics on their current agenda, such as the developments in Ukraine, Syria, the Iranian nuclear file or the situation in Northern Africa. USA and Russia also fell out over the poisoning and sentencing of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, the SolarWinds cyber-attacks scandal and Moscow’s bounties on US troops in Afghanistan.

DISINFORMATION: Romania wants to punish Moscow for “the criminal Sergey Magnitsky” and to adopt an anti-Russia law

The Romanian Parliament is preparing, out of obedience to the United States, an anti-Russian law designed for a corrupt lawyer. This false narrative appears in a post on the Facebook page of the Russian embassy in Bucharest, criticizing the so-called Magnitsky law, which is in the Chamber of Deputies now after it was endorsed by the Senate. The law provides, in fact, for the imposition of sanctions on foreign nationals who are guilty of serious human rights violations.

America, from Trump to Biden

La învestirea lui Biden s-a vorbit despre un nou început, însă în mare măsură pare a fi vorba de o încercare de revenire la punctul în care Statele Unite erau când Donald Trump a preluat puterea. Ca și cum Joe Biden ar vrea să închidă, acum, o paranteză. Acea paranteză din istoria Statelor Unite nu reprezintă, însă, doar o sumă de decizii care pot fi corectate, ci și un nou mod de a privi lumea și de a interpreta realitatea, iar acesta nu poate fi combătut prin ordine prezidențiale și inițiative legislative. Soluția, pentru moment, pare a fi apelul la simbolurile în care este ancorată America.

Radical groups shore up old alliances. Iran gets pushed back after over a decade and a half of expansions. The highlights of the 2000s were the outcome of the attack of the al-Qaeda network on the United States, while those of the following decade the result of the Arab Spring. In the East, the third decade is marked by the political will of its leaders.
