Valeriu Halupa, the key witness in the case of the murder attempt of Gorbuntsov, threatened by Renato Usatii

Valeriu Halupa, the key witness in the case of the murder attempt of German Gorbuntsov, is threatened by Renato Usatii, whom he indicated to be the person who ordered the crime. During a live video streaming on Facebook, the leader of Our Party, who now lives in Moscow, noticed Halupa “to think about what he is doing”.

Moreover, Usatii said that if he comes to power, he will make Halupa to say what he wants to. “Halupa, If I were like Plahotniuc, you would be arrested here, in Russia, and you would say all the truth. Think about what you are doing, Mr. Halupa” said Usatii. The Mayor of Balti hinted that if he comes to power in Moldova, he will use all the necessary methods to obtain the declarations he wants from Valeriu Halupa and the felon Ion Druta, aka “Vanea Pisateli”.

We want to mention that both Valeriu Halupa, who was the accomplice of the killer Vitalie Proca in organizing the murder of the banker German Gorbuntsov, and the felon “Vanea Pisateli”, who coordinated this activity, indicated that Usatii was the person who ordered the crime. Their declarations were confirmed both by the victim and the prosecutor’s evidence in Moldova and Great Britain.

A study shows that the online information space in Moldova continues to be strongly affected by Russian propaganda

The actions of the Moldovan authorities to stop the pro-Russian foreign propaganda and its negative effects on the information space in the Republic of Moldova are insufficient or completely absent.

The number of news and manipulating articles increased over the past three years, according to a study by the Institute for European Policies and Reforms (IPRE).

The analysis shows that some media sources actively promote manipulative information that propagates the interests of the Kremlin in the media in our country. In total, 652 links, placed between 2015-2017, were analyzed: www.sputnik.md (308 links), www.kp.md (231 links) and www.vedomosti.md (113 links).

Fig. 3: Number of articles publishes on the 3 most important topics:

Red – The Syrian conflict

Blue – Energetics

Green – Interference in the elections

“The systematically promoted messages are intensely anti-American, anti-European and anti-Western. This is aimed at influencing the attitudes and beliefs of Moldovan citizens, trying to promote the idea that only the Russian Federation is capable of solving the biggest problems around the world.” declared Simion Ciochin, author of the analytical note.

According to the IPRE analysis, further efforts are needed in order for the Moldovan authorities to combat this phenomenon.

PM Filip: Moldova can’t maintain a large army, but it can and must maintain a professional one

Yesterday, Prime Minister Pavel Filip visited the Military Training Base of the National Army in Bulboaca, as well as the multinational exercise “Fire Shield – 2018”, which takes place there.

This year, the number of soldiers by contract increased by more than 300 and the number of soldiers in term decreased by 400. According to the plan, for 2019 the number of soldiers in the term will decrease by another 1000, as by 2021 the military service will no longer be compulsory.

“Finally, we have a vision for the defense. The Republic of Moldova can’t maintain a very large army, but must have a well-trained, professional army. And, of course, I want you to use weapons only during military applications and training,” the prime minister said.

About 800 military officers from the Army subdivisions of the National Army, representatives of Carabinieri troops, as well as contingents from Romania and the United States of America participate in the “Fire Shield” training. In the context, the Premier thanked the partners for their $4 million support.

Silvia Radu, proposed as Minister of Health, Labor and Social Protection

Silvia Radu, former interim mayor of Chisinau, is proposed by the Democratic Party as Minister of Health, Labor and Social Protection. The announcement was made by the leader of the Democrats, Vlad Plahotniuc, during the weekly briefing of the party.

“I am counting on the managerial qualities of Silvia Radu. With this proposal, I am absolutely sure that it is a suitable candidacy,” declared Prime Minister Pavel Filip.

Silvia Radu got first involved in politics in 2016 when she ran as a candidate for the presidential elections. Then, although she invested 4.6 million lei, Radu received 5635 votes (0.37%), of which 1472 were in Chisinau. Radu ranked only eight out of nine contestants in the election.

In the electoral campaign in 2016, more than 2.4 million lei from the Silvia Radu’s budget was spent for electoral advertising at Prime TV, politician Vladimir Plahotniuc. In the 2018 campaign, the televisions in Plahotniuc’s trust support her for free.

According to the wealth and interest declaration for 2017, the Radu family has two apartments, a house, a commercial space in the capital and over 40 hectares of agricultural land. Silvia Radu, along with her husband, Vergiliu, are the owners of three cars: Audi A8, Volkswagen Passat and Ford Transit. The Radu spouses hold shares in five companies, the most important business being “Radu-Agro” SRL, with activities in agriculture. In 2017, however, their income was modest: Silvia Radu declared 13.2 thousand lei from Chisinau City Hall and her husband 44.9 thousand lei from “Radu-Agro” SRL.

According to the 2017 wealth and interest statement, the Radu family still retains only 22,000 euros in bank accounts at a Spanish financial institution.
