Alternation in power is a natural process, necessary for democracy. PDM accepts and respects it. We have demonstrated that we do not hang up on power. We wish if this change would have happened in a democratic and legal manner, without creating precedents that would severely damage Moldova on the long run. We'd wish to be replaced by politicians who act independently, as PDM did, and not be puppets of foreign forces. We will have time to talk about it later, I plan to reveal many things in the following period of time. Now things are to heated up and the ration is not necessarily present.

In Moldova, however the EU still remains a source of inspiration, expertise, and support for our pro-European government. In 2016, in a very polarised atmosphere and with an economy in massive need of investments and trust, the EU stepped in to define a new and well-designed roadmap of reforms in partnership with the new government, helping bring a sense of normalcy back to Moldova after several tumultuous years and allowing the young administration to focus on implementing new reforms and finding the right pace toward integration.

More than 25 years after Moldova gained independence, Russian troops are still stationed within our borders, in the breakaway region of Transnistria.

Such “frozen conflicts” reflect a Cold War mentality that sees the world as divided into spheres of influence and affords smaller countries no authority. These issues cannot be swept under the carpet anymore. The time has come for the international community to counter Moscow’s defiance firmly.

Possibility of EU membership provides a reason to reform. Europe is our natural home, culturally as well as geographically. While we have long been committed to economic, political and legal reform, the prospect of EU membership is encouraging us to redouble our efforts.
