Romania might recognise Kosovo in exchange for the annexation of Moldova

Summary of Disinformation

Bucharest might recognise Kosovo if the US will accept and recognise the annexation of Moldova by Romania.

Future Romanian expansion would include Chernivtsi region and south-western part of the Odessa region of Ukraine.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy about Romania, with previous record of questioning Moldova's integrity. This disinformation narrative aims at undermining Moldova's EU aspirations.

There is no evidence that Romania is considering annexing Moldova.

According to the Romanian Parliament, the country does not recognise Kosovo because "conditions to recognise the new entity are not fulfilled".
