Lithuania will pay for the consultations of experts who will advise how to redeem the LNG terminal-ship Independence. This project is too expensive for Lithuania. The employment of the experts is an additional investment. The LNG terminal project was not successful for Lithuania because it wants to be independent of Russian gas but is now exporting gas to the terminal mainly from Russia and Norway. The LNG terminal is economically useless, and Lithuania is paying for its political phobias.
The high turnout of Moldovan emigrants and a convincing victory of Maia Sandu in western countries followed from the full support of their authorities. They applied mobilisation techniques and organised transportation of voters to polling stations. Critics point at election fraud by overestimating the numbers of voters in Italy, Germany, the UK, Romania and other countries. The EU and US actively advocated for Maia Sandu. Her electoral victory is a success of the collective West in the big game.
Sandu’s team is very similar to the teams of Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Nikol Pashinyan. All were cultivated in the test tubes of American and European foundations and often cannot do anything except for completing application forms for grant support and speaking some English.
In case the US embassy voices recommendations concerning Moldova-Belarus relations, Sandu will likely join the critics of Alyaksandr Lukashenka.
This publication is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about West-inspired colour revolutions in post-Soviet countries and their puppet status in relations with the US, and about West's actions aimed to encircle Russia. It also contains disinformation concerning alleged fraud in the Moldovan presidential election and its facilitation by the western countries.
There is no evidence of US and EU interference in upcoming elections in Moldova. The US and EU countries support a free and fair electoral process in Moldova. A statement published by the EU on 02 November 2020 underlines that "The European Union fully supports the strengthening of democratic institutions in the Republic of Moldova and highlights that respecting the right of all voters to express their will in credible, inclusive and transparent elections is a fundamental democratic principle which is also at the heart of the EU-Republic of Moldova Association Agreement."
After the first round of voting, Moldovans in the diaspora demanded the reopening of several polling stations or the replacement of ballot boxes. This is due to the fact that in countries such as Germany, Italy, the UK, citizens sat in line for several hours to vote. There is no evidence, however, that local authorities in the US or in the EU countries were organising diaspora voting or providing "full support" to it as claimed.
References to Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Nikol Pashinyan and their team members as people cultivated by American and European foundations are consistent with disinformation narrative painting events in post-Soviet countries as provocations and colour revolutions promoted by the West or Soros. Such allegations are present in the case of Georgia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Venezuela, Bulgaria, Armenia, Slovakia and lately in Belarus.
See earlier disinformation cases claiming that US and EU officials have intervened openly in Moldova’s domestic political processes, that Maia Sandu’s mission is to help Biden create a sanitaire cordon around Russia, Armenia is a country controlled by the Soros Foundation, and that the Soros Foundation took an active part in Rose, Orange and Velvet revolutions.
