IPN Flow Synopsis for December 13, 2019
Baltics, brothers who care
The European Union should give the EaP member states clear accession prospects. If we remember how the situation was in this part of Europe in 2009, in contrast to 2019, we will see the force of this project. Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova, at least, did all-inclusive reforms and changed extraordinarily. That’s why we want to have more instruments and increased commitment on the part of the EU so as to treat these countries as real partners,” Petras Austrevicius stated in an interview for RFE/RL’s Moldovan Service.
This is how Europeans are! We have similar blood
More than 60 tonnes of electrical and electronic waste have been collected this year at the points set up as part of the project “Clean City with Recycled e-Waste” and the campaign launched by “Hai Moldova”. Aurelia Bahnaru, manager of the project “Clean City with Recycled e-Waste”, said there are now 120 collection points in the city, situated inside public, private and academic institutions.
Small deviations with considerable effects
The privatization of “Air Moldova” airline at some of the stages was performed with deviations from the regulations. The state-owned company “Air Moldova” went bankrupt as a result of the defective management of decision makers, founders, administration board and administrators. The lack of objective information following the hampering of audit missions in 2014-2017 resulted in the sale of the only state-run airline.
Not as luscious as it seems
Moldova is the only country that is absent from the talks on the supply of Russian gas via Ukraine. Energy expert Victor Parlicov, former director of the National Agency for Energy Regulation, said he is sure that the contract for the supply of gas between the Russian Federation and Ukraine, which has been heatedly debated in the recent past, will be extended.”We remain optimistic that Russia and Ukraine will reach an agreement about the transportation of gas and we will receive natural gas through the common route,” stated Premier Chicu.
Three can ensure failure of ten
The president of the Save Bessarabia Union (USB) Valeriu Munteanu said there are three parties with unionist views that are considering the possibility of strengthening cooperation and want to work on a common platform. He didn’t explain what this cooperation consists in, but noted that the three parties could ultimately merge as the goal of these parties is to forge unity on the unionist platform.
