Moldovans suspicious of Romania's intentions

Dec 8, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: MSN Money

“Romania doesn't recognise our national identity. They don't recognise a Moldovan ethnicity or Moldovan language. For them, there is no Moldovan history”

White-haired, ruddy-faced, the monotonous fluency of his speech betraying his earlier career as a Soviet Communist party apparatchik, Vladimir Voronin has the glint of political battle in his eyes. via MSN Money

There's a pretty complex situation in Moldova as they're exactly on the faultline between the East and the West so tensions are quite high.

Voronin complains about the Romanians not recognising Moldavian history... we're taught Romanian history, and Moldavian history has been an important part of that. The same people, the same language, and historically a common land, with some newer borders that were a bit artificial. To some, very artificial, but that's hardly the point.

I believe Voronin is trying to rush things in order to create another obstacle in front of a possible union, in the form of a treaty recognising artificial differentiations between Romanians and Moldavians. He would then turn this against the unionists in Moldavia, saying something like "they don't want it, even they say we're different". Another possibility would be that he is simply trying to create an artificial conflict that would activate Romanian nationalism in Romania.

The Romanians I believe will sign if forced. After all, these are the current borders, and regardless of the past borders, I don't think that Romania would ever officially claim Moldavian or Ukrainian territory. However, if Moldavia would decide by referendum that it wants to join Romania, I believe most Romanians would approve this, it would be seen as a natural step.

I am highly amused by his irritation at the citizenship issue. Of course they can easily get Romanian citizenship, why wouldn't they. They speak the language, they know the history, they respect Romania and so on. Voronin should ask Moldavians to ammend their constitution to prevent Moldavian citizens from having multiple citizenship :)

Actually he is a romanian. At least his grandfather was deported by soviets in Siberia. Later escaped from prison, came back and became an active member of anticommunist and pro-Romanian movement. He died in Romania. One of Voronin's aunts is living in Romania until now. In one of her interviews she said her nephew is an idiot.

What motivations can have an old schizophrenic and alcoholic? People say Voronin suffered a heart attack during protests against his intentions to replace in schools
'History of Romanians' with so called Moldavian history and impose Russian language. Now he is treading on the same rake again.
With his anti-Romanian rhetoric he is trying to divert attention from internal problems, to please Russian minority and to please Russia, because Russia is the place where he, his son billionaire and whole his family will run after 2009 elections. If they will stay here, they will be judged.
Part of the press is licking his azz, other part is calling him a lunatic and liar. His nick is 'The Liar' in fact. And he really is. Typical communist liar.

Yes they are.
The problem is why they keep voting on the same communists.

But, as jmNZ wrote, Moldavian history, along with Walachian, Dobrogean and Transylvanian, IS Rumanian history.
