US aims to corrupt local authorities in order to obtain total control over Moldova

Summary of Disinformation

The US aims to corrupt local authorities in order to obtain total control over Moldova.

Over the last 25 years Moldova has benefited from 1 billion dollars offered by USAID, but the ordinary people did not benefit from this money.

Disproof

No evidence provided that the USAID financial help aims to corrupt local authorities. List of USAID projects in Moldova here.

The author tries to suggest that money coming from US funds is not being implemented in concrete projects, which is a fake affirmation. As Timpul.md reports, US funding has been used in infrastructure projects, e.g. $ 500,000 allocation for the construction of a water treatment plant in Teleneşti.
