On Wednesday, July 2, Moldova's parliament ratified a broad trade and political agreement with the European Union. On the same day, Russia banned meat exports from Moldova.
“We are very much aware and worried about the possible reaction.. We are not alone in keeping worried about the future. Of course, the entire region is largely affected by the recent decision of the Russian federation to occupy and annex Crimea and make turmoil in eastern Ukraine.”-Moldova’s ambassador to the United States Igor Munteanu
Russian bullying and threatening smaller, former satellite nations has got to stop. Putin has the opportunity to bring Russia into the 21st century or drag it back into the gulags of Lenin and Stalin. The WTO (World Trade Organization), EU, and the US need to continue to strengthen and increase sanctions against Russia until it is no longer economically feasible to continue their unilateral attacks. Ignoring this problem will not make it go away.
Please share this information with your elected officials. Russia must be stopped before they get so bold as to start military operations against other former satellites (besides Ukraine).
