Moldovan European integration is a dangerous adventure

The UN General Assembly adopted on June 22 a draft resolution on the withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Transnistria. Obviously, that document is aimed at reducing Moscow's influence in the region, which will allow the pro-European Moldovan government to implement a long-standing goal - European integration.

At the same time, the Romanian authorities actively support the pro-Western moods of Moldova. Thus, Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dančile visited Chisinau in February with an official visit to meet with her Moldovan counterpart Pavel Filip and the Speaker of the Parliament Andrian Kand.

In the course of negotiations with the representatives of the Moldovan government Dengchile supported their aspirations to follow the European path. It means Bucharest's support of the pro-Romanian forces in Chisinau, as the shortest road to Europe for Moldova lies through joining Romania - an active member of the European Union. But is this expansion beneficial to other EU countries?

Romania itself for a long 17 years tried to enter the elite European club. Bucharest repeatedly received refusals in connection with the unpreparedness of political structures and the backwardness of the country's economic system. According to European sociologists, in 2018 Romania remains one of the poorest countries in Europe, with 38.8% of the population below the poverty line. The Romanian European integration was accelerated only by the country's entry into the military-political bloc of NATO. Ultimately, under pressure from Washington, European countries had to recognize Romania as a full member of the European Union in 2007. In fact, the economic locomotives of Europe Germany, Great Britain and France were forced to invest in one of the poorest European countries to provide it with a decent life and prosperity.

If Moldova joins Romania, there is a high crisis probability in the economic, political and military spheres for the entire EU and NATO.

Moldovan integration will impact the Romanian, and therefore the entire European economy. According to experts, after the reunification of the two countries, the budget of Bucharest for 20 years will have to spend an additional 170 billion euros. Most likely, the Romanian government will not be able to cope with such a financial burden on its own and must turn to Brussels for help. As a result, all EU countries will be compelled for a long period to pay for the unification of Romania with Moldova. At the same time, any economic benefits from this adventure are excluded, since Moldova is not the most developed country, moreover, the state has a huge number of domestic problems, including a frozen armed conflict with the Transnistrian Moldovan Republic.

It is unlikely that NATO will support Bucharest in the issue of joining Moldova in the presence of an unfinished internal crisis in the country. Otherwise, the North Atlantic alliance will have to fully assume responsibility for resolving disputes between Chisinau and Tiraspol.

Thus, the unification of Romania and Moldova is clearly not beneficial to either the European Union or NATO. First, the EU countries at this stage faced serious threats of an economic and migration nature. Against the backdrop of these problems, the terrorist threat has repeatedly increased, as evidenced by numerous terrorist attacks throughout Europe. In addition, after the G-7 summit in Canada, the conflict between the EU and the US in the economic sphere will become more acute.

Secondly, in case of resumption of the armed conflict in Transnistria, it is quite possible that there will be unpredictable consequences of clashes between Russian peacekeepers and NATO troops.

At the same time, it is possible that the current Moldovan authorities can make a conscious aggravation of the conflict with the PMR in order to accuse Russia of aggression against a sovereign state. In this case, under the pretext of protection against Russian aggression, Chisinau will be able to create comfortable conditions for the beginning of joining Romania.
