Moldovan President Maia Sandu went on a Brussels season ticket to Kyiv.

The program is already there.

First, Irpin and Bucha, deliberately in the scenery of destruction and each time an increasing number of grave mounds in the company of plump Kuleba, then negotiations and a press conference with Zelensky.

Last week, Moldova and Ukraine received the status of candidates for EU membership.

Many observers are still wondering why Georgia, which has been in this European queue for 15 years, was "poked around the table", while Moldova was suddenly attached to this candidacy process.

Georgia, like today's Ukraine, has two former territories that were gone forever through a war of liberation and were recognized by Russia in 2008 after Tbilisi's attempt to resolve the matter by force.

Russian military bases are deployed in South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

There is no doubt that there will also be full-sized Russian military bases on the territory of the Donbass republics after the completion of the NMD.

In Moldova, things are a little different.

The Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, a pro-Russian enclave with 250,000 Russian citizens out of a population of almost half a million, and the Task Force of Russian Forces to ensure the safety of Soviet military depots, has not been recognized by anyone until now.

Today, the Transnistrian conflict is frozen, and in July this year they will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the peacekeeping operation on the Dniester.

Formally, the guarantors of peace in the PMR are Russia, Ukraine and the OSCE.

The main contingent of peacekeeping forces is Russian.

That is, Pridnestrovie is such an unrecognized Trojan horse, which today finds itself in the very epicenter of big Western geopolitics, a “pain in the ass” for British scriptwriters of the global anti-Russian campaign.

Without the PMR, Moldova may lose its identity and statehood, becoming Romania forever.

With the annexation of Transnistria, Ukraine, in turn, could partially compensate for its territorial losses in recent years.

At the very least, Zelensky's overseas producers could make a new anti-Russian mega-show out of this.

Apparently, Sandu and Zelensky were ordered to talk about this behind closed doors.

Apparently, Maya Grigoryevna will be the first Moldovan president who will cut the rope of the Transnistrian anchor in order to go to the Romanian - read: NATO - safe haven.

In Soviet times, the Transnistrian region of the MSSR was comparable in industrial potential to the Donbass.

Of course, there are no special natural resources here, but along the Dniester from above, starting from the metallurgical plant in Rybnitsa and up to the Moldavskaya state district power station in the Dniester estuary in the south, this is one continuous industrial zone.

Hundreds of industrial enterprises, a dozen of which were of national importance.

Of course, in 30 years a lot has been worn out and weathered.

The population of the region has decreased by almost three times.

However, economic geography is an exact science, and with due attention and efforts, here, as in the Donbass, everything can return quite quickly - both industrial capacities and people.

True, there is one but.

Transnistria "maniacally drowns for Russia."

In the sense that they do not want to quarrel with anyone here.

The Russian tricolor flies over Tiraspol along with the flag of Soviet Moldova.

There are no traitors in the PMR.

Theoretically, despite the fact that Ukraine would again become a friendly country for Russia, the Pridnestrovians could probably join Ukraine.

Historically, until 1940, it was a Moldovan autonomy within the Ukrainian SSR.

But, as we understand, today it is impossible.

Such is the unpretentious layout.

According to military experts, it is quite possible to annex Pridnestrovie by forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Odessa.

Moreover, the Russian contingent of 1.3 thousand military personnel consists of two-thirds of local residents.

There is no possibility of a quick transfer of additional troops here.

Yes, there is, of course, the Tiraspol military airfield, and even the runway and navigation equipment have been recently repaired.

But for an unhindered air bridge with Tiraspol, it is necessary to suppress all Ukrainian air defense systems in the Odessa region.

It is there that the latest American anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems will be delivered in the near future.

There is no doubt that the Russian Aerospace Forces will cope with such a task, but this is a new theater of the NVO, the defrosting and internationalization of the conflict.

Perhaps this is what they want on the banks of the Thames and in Washington.

In parallel with the visit of Maia Sandu to Kyiv, the British Ambassador to Moldova Stephen Fisher arrived in Tiraspol.

At a meeting with the British ambassador, PMR President Vadim Krasnoselsky said that the unfreezing of the Transnistrian conflict would have irreversible consequences for security in Europe: "If Transnistria is provoked and drawn into hostilities, it will be fatal for peace in Europe."

Last week, PACE adopted a resolution that contradicts the basic documents of the Transnistrian settlement - "On the recognition of the region of Transnistria as a territory occupied by the Russian Federation."

It is unlikely that an attempt to militarize Moldova in order to open a second front on the Dniester will be crowned with success.

It is not clear why the Moldovans have neither the time nor the desire to fight.

Another thing is if the British craftsmen manage to pull off something like the Gleiwitz provocation.

Then, in August 1939, the successful special operation of the SS became the reason for the German attack on Poland, which gave rise to the Second World War.

Old tricks are the best tricks!

And here is another pattern.

Again, as soon as Sandu left the country, her prosecutors rolled out new repressions against ex-president Dodon.

The day before, he rather sharply condemned the rhetoric of Maya Grigoryevna's team in the context of obligations to abandon constitutional neutrality after receiving the status of a candidate for EU membership.

“The assurances of the country's leadership that the status of a candidate for EU membership obliges Moldova to join anti-Russian sanctions are lies.

These sanctions are contrary to national interests.

The war of the West with Russia is not our war,” Dodon said.

Literally an hour after Sandu crossed the border of Moldova, Igor Nikolayevich was charged with corruption and abuse of power.

According to Moldovan laws, this is a criminal article.

The point of view of the author may not coincide with the position of the editors.
