Moldova: In the Shadow of Putin’s War

Moldova is a small country sandwiched between Romania and Ukraine, and it faces significant challenges due to its geopolitical position. The ongoing war in Ukraine, fueled by Russian aggression, has cast a long shadow over Moldova. The country is grappling with an influx of refugees, economic uncertainty, and concerns about its own security. Additionally, Moldova has its own unresolved conflict with the breakaway region of Transnistria, which is backed by Russia. The situation is further complicated by Moldova's dependence on Russian energy supplies. The country's ability to maintain its stability and independence in the face of these challenges remains a major concern for the international community.
