“The Russian military exercises are a way of telling officials of EU that Russia will not leave Crimea”, journalist Victor Nichituş writes in a post on his personal blog.
“On 12 March, European politicians adopted a resolution through the European Parliament that the Russian Federation is no longer a strategic partner of the European Union and that the member states of EU must remain open to the imposition of additional sanctions against the Russian Federation.
Also in the same day, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that Ukraine continues to develop new types of weapons, including missiles. ” We already have a new, high-quality, armed army. We’ll have missiles. Now we have Neptune cruise missiles that have been tested successfully, plus Oliha tactical missiles and Stugna anti-tank missiles “- Poroshenko explained. At the same time, the leader from Kiev promised effective cooperation in the industry od defence between Ukraine and the main member countries of NATO”, he adds.
In his opinion, “when Ukraine begins to smell gunpowder, the post-electoral turbulence in the Republic of Moldova gets the value of a frozen onion.” “In order for the geopolitical intersection between the Prut and the Dniester to not be ignited by the old iron stored in the Transnistrian region, I believe that the Moldovan politicians, and not only, will find a political understanding that maintains a status quo convenient for all”, wrote Victor Nichituş.
