Europeanization of Moldova can turn into Islamisation

Summary of Disinformation

The Europeanization of the Republic of Moldova can turn into Islamisation.

Moldova surrendered its economy through the free trade (agreement) with the EU. Many important Moldovan politicians are under the influence of the Arab sheikhs. Over the past two years, there were numerous trips of leading politicians to such countries as Qatar, the UAE and Saudi Arabia and vice versa. It seems that these countries are intensively sent to Moldova to colonize it. Thus, the Islamisation of the Republic of Moldova will take place in the near future.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about islamisation: euvsdisinfo.eu/figure-of-the-week-50/,

No evidence given.

Regarding the The Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), this is compatible with all other free trade agreements that Moldova is part of, and does not limit Moldova's ability to export its products to other countries. Moldova also retains full sovereignty over its trade policy since it is not a member of any customs union. The EU is Moldova’s first trading partner and biggest investor in the country. In 2016, it accounted for 66% of Moldova’s overall exports and 55% of total trade.
