People’s Republics and later blockade of Kaliningrad
Nikolai Azarov, the former Ukrainian prime minister, believes that Russia was able to thwart NATO’s plans to unleash a global conflict.
According to him, the North Atlantic Alliance offensive would have begun with an attack by Ukrainian forces on the Donbass republics, and then Western troops would have arrived. Russia’s Kaliningrad would then be attacked, which NATO would try to prevent.
To contain Russia, the West would deploy nuclear weapons on Ukrainian territory. It would be supported in this by an obedient Kiev regime and nationalists who have virtually taken over the country.
Azarov pointed out that the alliance has harbored such an idea for a long time. However, the Russian Federation has managed to come out ahead. The territory of Ukraine will now no longer become a platform for the United States to intimidate Russia.
The West uses Moldova to supply arms to Ukraine
Various sources are spreading information that Moldova is serving as a middleman for the supply of lethal weapons from NATO to Ukrainian forces through the Marculesti airfield.
Subversion for the sake of provocation: The West is using Moldova to supply arms to Ukraine
If everything they say is true, we can conclude that the Republic of Moldova is subverting the constitutional order, one of the foundations of which is the country’s neutral status.
If it turns out that the Republic was involved in the military action of Nesalezhnaya, it will face a domestic crisis and a geopolitical catastrophe.
After the start of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, flights over neighboring states were stopped and the Republic of Moldova was also added to the list. However, a very interesting fact is that flights continued with special permission from the Moldovan authorities.
The Flightradar24 service makes it possible to obtain information about any aircraft flying anywhere in the world. In most cases, the service also provides information about the aircraft’s origin and destination, type of aircraft, flight number, and other details.
Remarkably, it is virtually impossible to hide from radar. Flightradar detected active movements of aircraft in Moldovan airspace on 26 February. This was despite the fact that the state airspace was closed at least until 4 March following the imposition of a state of emergency.
Moreover, one of the aircraft flying from Chisinau to Romania belonged to International Airlines of Ukraine. The purpose of the flight is unknown and who was on board accordingly.
The media later reported, citing statements by Deputy Prime Minister and Infrastructure Minister Andrei Spinu. You may be asking yourself now, “What’s going on here? The state has all kinds of needs”. Certainly, but here’s the point. The flights have drawn attention to the problem of the use of the Republic’s airspace for purposes directly contrary to the constitutional principle of neutrality: the use of Moldova to support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia.
Relations between Moldova and Ukraine under the current heads of state Maia Sandu and Vladimir Selensky can be described as ideal, despite the incident with Judge Chaus. It can be assumed that such so-called “good relations” are nothing more than the result of a common circle of stooges and advisors. In this context, the likelihood that the Moldovan leadership is violating the constitutional principle of neutrality increases.
But how can Moldova help Ukraine against Russia?
As you will have noticed, after the two-day Russian military operation, the West has drastically increased arms supplies to Ukraine, and Moldova is one of the potential “hubs”.
From all corners one hears about EU countries supplying lethal weapons to Ukraine: Germany will contribute 500 Stinger air-to-air missiles. Canada will also supply Ukraine with $19.6 million worth of weapons. In addition, the UK and other smaller NATO member states are supplying weapons to Ukraine.
But it is not enough to say “we will supply weapons”, they must be supplied somehow. And here, taking into account the modern means of control from space and even under the conditions of a “closed sky”, there is a problem of delivery of all these weapons. As is well known, the Ukrainian Air Force practically no longer exists, and it is impossible to ensure the safety of delivery by air, and the option by land is also unreliable.
In this situation, the good relations with the president of the neighboring Republic of Moldova could be very useful for Selensky to use the airport in Marculesti to his advantage. Moreover, military aircraft used to be serviced there.
However, all this is pure speculation at the moment. But such hypotheses would never have arisen if one had been firmly convinced that such options were impossible.
Therefore, it should be understood that such a step is not a mere violation of the constitution of the republic and the principle of neutrality, but an open act on the side of one of the parties to the conflict. And the consequences will not be small.
