Dumitru Mînzărari: Domestic Decay and Remote Capture: The Compromising of Moldova’s Defense and Security

This analysis claims that the Republic of Moldova in particular, and the Eastern Europe in general, are facing an unobvious and new strain of Russian hybrid war. This obscure form of interstate aggression pioneered by Russia against its former satellites and the West, is deliberately designed to escape its timely detection by existing international law mechanisms. Therefore, the analysis points out that the process, widely labeled as hybrid war, is a model of stealthy political assimilation of new countries, as a modern replacement of territorial annexation. By focusing on the Republic of Moldova’s case, the analysis examines and reveals the nuances and particularities of this obscure form of Russian aggression. To do so, it elicits important dynamics of the Russian model of hybrid aggression. In turn, this allows to generalize this type of aggression, suggesting it became a typical and widely used war technology in Russia’s foreign policy against many countries. The only difference displayed by other European countries, in contrast to Moldova, is that they have specific levels of vulnerability, and thus trigger responses from Russia that are tailored to exploit that variation in their degrees of vulnerability.

This analytical study will assess the current EU-Moldova relationship, through the implementation of the AA/DCFTA. Using relevant criteria, the study will outline the major achievements during the implementation of the AA/DCFTA along with setbacks with a particular focus on the role of the Moldovan authorities and the extent to which they deviated from the commitment to pursue an ‘European path’. In addition, the document also explores the role of the European Union in the Transnistrian settlement process. More specifically, the paper will explore whether there is a role for the EU as a mediator rather than observer, and the implications of the DFCTA in the breakaway region (where it is partially implemented).

Elections in time of the Hybrid War: the case of Moldova

Security challenges arising from hybrid threats are high on security agenda in the Republic of Moldova as well as regionally. In the period of electoral process, the hybrid context became more tangible. A Moldovan asymmetric approach to the Russian hybrid threats have created provocative conditions in which reducing the threats and eventually preventing it was impossible. Moldova will remain in a so called «gray» zone for a long time due to misunderstanding of Russia worldview and using Russian support in the double political game of the potential electoral participants. The internal political situation of the country depends on the results of coalition formation in the Parliament.
