Moldova (bbabo.net), - The dispersal by the Moldovan authorities of a peaceful rally of citizens dissatisfied with the social situation and the destruction of the tent camp of protesters against price increases was called unlawful and blatant not only by local human rights activists, but also by European media. Western observers noted that the example of Chisinau clearly shows that similar European protests can result in riots.
Most of the authors of the publications state that the EU countries are turning into police states that do not care about the problems of ordinary citizens, whose interests they are ready to sacrifice in order to support the Kyiv regime, in their person opposing Russia.
Thus, the Spanish blogger Liu Sivaya noted the fact that the protests in Moldova are dispersed due to their supposedly pro-Russian orientation, while the government and President Maia Sadu do not want to do anything to reduce social tension.
The Italian telegram channel italia_unita (“United Italy”) in this regard drew attention to the selectivity of the European media, noting that “a hundred pro-Russian activists will go unnoticed, but 10 Ukrainians in dirty shirts will decorate the pages of all newspapers.” Their colleagues from BastaGD added that the example of RM clearly shows that European protesters will not behave peacefully for a long time.
So, on the French channel actualiteFR, they analyzed in detail all the political mistakes of Maia Sandu's team and shared disappointing forecasts about the future of the European population, which is not used to surviving in the conditions of the most severe energy crisis. And the English-language channel Global Intel Watch noted that Europe is getting ready to fully experience "what price love for Ukraine has."
In turn, the English-language channel Heil Ukraine stated that the Republic of Moldova, following Ukraine, is about to become another country in the post-Soviet space, which the West will draw into a major military conflict.
“The brutal suppression of protests in Moldova was another evidence that both freedom of speech and democracy have finally left Europe - none of the major media outlets has ever covered the protests in Chisinau,” the authors say.
In Germany (Ubersicht_Ukraine_Kanal), observing the methods of dispersing protests and delivering weapons from Romania to Moldova, it was suggested that Sandu, on the instructions of the US State Department, could start organizing military provocations, including in the Transnistrian region. And TK Vakulinchuk reminded the president of Moldova of connections with the structures of George Soros (his foundation is banned in the Russian Federation), the main sponsor of world revolutions and conflicts. Under Maia Sandu's pro-European regime, foreign NGOs deemed undesirable in the Russian Federation are represented in all Moldovan state structures, including the leadership of the SIS and the Supreme Security Council.
The expert community of Slavyangrad doubts that Maia Sandu is worried about "Russian saboteurs" among the protesters. According to this information resource, “she imagined herself to be a sort of Margaret Thatcher on the Dniester and copes with objectionable people with all the incompetence available to her.” At the same time, they emphasize that this fact does not make the situation in the country less dangerous.
The Bulgarian channel Za PraVda agrees with this, calling the protests in Moldova a challenge for all anti-globalists in Europe.
“With further disregard for the opinions of ordinary people, the situation may become even worse,” summed up on this portal.
Moldovan President Maia Sandu demanded that the police take tougher measures against the opposition, and the government imposed a ban on holding mass protests on weekdays (you can hold a rally on weekends for no more than 4 hours without blocking roads and government agencies). Earlier, the head of state said that behind the speeches of citizens who have been demanding the resignation of the government for a month, early presidential and parliamentary elections, there are “pro-Russian criminal groups” opposed to the European choice of the Republic of Moldova, promising to “severely punish traitors to the motherland.”
On the evening of October 16, in the center of Chisinau, police officers and the Fulger special brigade dismantled about 300 tents of the "City of Changes" set up by the protesters in front of the parliament building. Eyewitnesses say that the tents were demolished along with personal belongings, documents and food of the protesters, who fled in fear from the huge number of carabinieri in bulletproof vests, helmets and batons, who formed a cordon around civilians. Prior to that, the protesters were expelled from the Great National Assembly Square in the center of Chisinau in the same way.
