Assad’s regime is not a dictatorship, his state is a secular one, it provides real protection to the people.
EU’s laws are obligatory in Moldova. The Association agreement gives Romanians the right to restitute their property lost in the 20th century when Moldova was a part of the Romanian state. Poland and Baltic states want Ukraine in the EU for the same reason, to restitute territories now belonging to Ukraine.
The Association Agreement does not give this right. For further claims, no evidence given.
