Disinfo: Results of the Association Agreement in Moldova: People have become much poorer and the social genocide continues

Summary

After three years of implementation of the Association Agreement with the European Union, the Moldovan people have become much poorer and social genocide continues. After three-year implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU, the worst fears about the consequences of signing this document were justified.

Disproof

The EU is the most important trading partner for the Republic of Moldova, and the largest donor. eeas.europa.eu/delegations/moldova/1538/republic-moldova-and-eu_en,

The trade performance of the Republic of Moldova during the first two years of DCFTA implementation was negatively affected by several factors (with no relation to the Association Agreement signed with EU):
continuous political instability in the Republic of Moldova, less favourable national/regional economic situation (banking crisis, theft of the billion, MDL devaluation, US dollar appreciation, unfavourable climatic conditions, decrease in the international prices for some products), regional geopolitical tensions (the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine). www.expert-grup.org/en/biblioteca/item/1409-evolutia-fluxurilor-comerciale-rm-ue-dupa-2-ani-de-implementare-a-zlsac/1409-evolutia-fluxurilor-comerciale-rm-ue-dupa-2-ani-de-implementare-a-zlsac,

The source for the disinformation is CyberBerkut, a hackers group known for claiming cyber-attacks against NATO or German Chancellery and Bundestag. “CyberBerkut is a front organization for Russian state-sponsored cyber activity, supporting Russia’s military operations and strategic objectives in Ukraine,” writes the U.S Defense Intelligence Agency www.dia.mil/Portals/27/Documents/News/Military%20Power%20Publications/Russia%20Military%20Power%20Report%202017.pdf, .
