If the Moldovan government does not hasten reform, the nation has a chance to transform into the next hot spot, said the Secretary General of the Council of Europe thorbjц?rn Jagland.
With all of this, the findings of the security crisis can spread far beyond the borders of power, he said.
European officials have found another country of the former USSR, which does not seek to break all the relation with Russia, but, at that moment, wish to participate in European politics. We are talking about Moldova and now she has all chances to become a future hot spot in the region.
"Moldova is a small country with a population just 3 and a half million people - is at risk of becoming the next major europejskim security crisis, which potentially would have implications far beyond its borders," - wrote in his own article in The New York Times, the Secretary-General of the Council of Europe thorbjц?rn Jagland. And the reason specifically hiding in the uncertainty of the future power.
So, barely power in 1991, it declared its own autonomy, as delineated 2 major political movement - one oriented toward integration with the European Union, and 2nd - closer cooperation with the Russian Federation. In 2009 came to power Pro-European forces, which have signed an Association agreement with the EU and integration of powers in the European market.
But the financial situation has not improved, and, in the words of some people power, even became noticeably worse. Many vital and significant reforms are not implemented, the fight against corruption has stalled, the credibility of the authorities was undermined.
There is tension in the territorial issues of power. "In recent months we have seen a serious deterioration in relations with Transnistria," said the European official. "Favorites of Transnistria complain that Moldavia conspired with Ukraine to keep them under economic blockade and told to muster in the Transnistrian army reservists from 18 to 27 years. At this stage a full-scale military incident is hardly possible, but in such a tense situation, even the insignificant skirmishes can spiral out of control," he added.
Part of the population of Moldova believes that the path to prosperity power is through the Eurasian financial Union, headed by the Russian Federation. In such circumstances, the Pro-European government must take strong action.
"Not so long ago formed the Moldovan government needs to act quickly. 3 main Pro-European party of power has recently joined the coalition, and then by Parliament as Prime Minister was approved by Valeriu strelet, which among other things supports the EU membership," said thorbjц?rn Jagland.
Now the government has to take urgent measures to combat corruption and to strengthen the banking system, another power is at risk to repeat the Ukrainian scenario, is afraid of him. "We must never forget that the crisis in Ukraine started with deep disappointment by the people of political institutions", - said the Secretary General of the Council of Europe.
But powers has a chance to prevent the development of events in the worst case scenario. "Despite years of disappointments many Moldovans still have high hopes for their country. They recognize that, freed from corruption, it can be transformed. But first captured the state should be returned to its citizens," concluded thorbjц?rn Jagland.
