"To hijack" for 20 million: the US is preparing to seize Moldova under the nose of Russia

Summary of Disinformation

The USAID funds aim to decentralize Moldova. This will mean that the power will pass from the national authorities to the local ones. In this context the local authorities will be absolutely dependent on foreign donors. This actually is proved by the activity of the declared program of the United States Agency for International Development.

An infrastructure with manual control at the local level is created in front of us, strongly linked to the American institutes and development funds.

 

Disproof

No evidence provided of the US trying to seize Moldova. USAID partners with Moldova to improve government effectiveness and accountability, and promote decentralization of the government. It aims to strengthen linkages between local governments and citizens to increase citizen engagement in the governance process. It is not "manual control" of the local authorities but a basic principle of a democratic society.
