An office of the North-Atlantic Treaty Organization will be opened this autumn at Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. The representation will have specialists from different states who will advise and support the Moldovan army to implement the NATO standards and to cooperate with the NATO members.

The announcement was made on Thursday, August 20th, at Bucharest, at a meeting between Moldova’s and Romania’s Ministers of Defense, Anatol Salaru and Mircea Dusa.


“This office will employ experts from different countries, including Romania, which will have to help Moldova to prepare and adapt to NATO’s standards. The office will be opened in September or October. Moldova is a partner of NATO and thus, it is important to found a joint peace-keeping battalion in Iasi”, told the Romanian Minister Dusa.

Furthermore, Salaru declared that “Moldova is in a area of insecurity, warned by the Eastern danger” and that “it needs Romania’s support in the reform of the National Army, to improve the defense capacity”.

He confirmed that Moldova’s long term goal is to become a NATO member, even if the Constitution states the neutrality of the Republic.

Dmitry Rogozin, angry at Plahotniuc: He is the reason for the travel ban in the Republic of Moldova



Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Rogozin says that the leader of the Democratic Party, Vladimir Plohatniuc, is the reason behind his ban on entering Moldova. The statements were made during an interview with the Russian TV channel “Rossia24”.

“Why is this happening? Moldova is a small country and very often becomes the object on which the West puts a lot of pressure, the Americans in the first place. In addition, the disaster from 1991 led to the formation of mafia groups. Finally, these mafia groups coalesced into a large group headed by one man, I have already pronounced his name, Mr. Plahotniuc, who controls absolutely everything in this country,” Rogozin said.

Reminder: After a failed attempt by Rogozin to come to Moldova this July to participate in the celebration dedicated to the 25 years since the beginning of the Dniestrovy Peacekeeping Operation, the Moldovan authorities declared Rogozin persona non grata in Moldova. Dmitry Rogozin has allowed himself to give defamatory assessments to the Republic of Moldova and, implicitly, to our citizens. Also, the Russian Deputy Prime Minister has had offensive opinions against the authorities of our country, which have a denigrating and a hypocrite character.
