Russia and Moldova have restored strategic partnership

18 January 2017

For the first time in nine years, the President of Moldova paid a visit to Moscow, where he announced rebuilding “strategic partnership” of the two countries and made a number of broad statements, including on Crimea and DMR. However, everybody understands that success of Igor Dodon is transitional. The real fight for power will take place at the parliamentary elections, and Moscow should help Dodon to retain his popularity, writes VZGLYAD.
