President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday revoked a 2012 decree that partly underpinned Moldova’s sovereignty in resolving the future of the Transnistria region — a Moscow-backed separatist region that borders Ukraine and where Russia maintains troops, writes Hal Turner.

The decree, which contained a Moldovan component, outlined Russia’s foreign policy 11 years ago, which assumed closer relations between Moscow and the European Union and the United States.

The decision revoking the 2012 document was published on the Kremlin’s website and states that the decision was made to “safeguard Russia’s national interests in connection with the profound changes taking place in international relations.”

Moldova borders the southwest of…. Ukraine. The map below shows it:

The Transnistria region is a small piece of land on the extreme eastern edge of Moldova, bordering Ukraine. Transnistria appears in yellow on the fixed map below:

The Russian speakers of Transnistria separated from Moldova in 1990, a year before the dissolution of the Soviet Union, over fears that Moldova would merge with Romania, whose language and culture it largely shares.

In 1992, a short war raged between the newly independent Moldova and the separatists. But in the last 30 years there has been virtually no violence, while Russian “peacekeepers” are still stationed in the small piece of land that has no international recognition.

Moldova’s foreign ministry said it will “carefully study” the document.

Russian peacekeepers have been in Transnistria for decades. Now it looks like Russia is going to add troops there so they can push against the far southwest of Ukraine and its main port city of Odessa.

With troops already established in Transnistria, it is easy to build up troops for an attack on southwestern Ukraine. If this happens – and it looks like it will – “Ukraine” will be completely cut off from the entire Black Sea.

NATO is already working on this. Before the start of Russia’s special military operation (SMO), Ukraine had signed a lease agreement with NATO/US to establish a naval base there.

If Russia takes that area of ​​Ukraine, the NATO naval base will never be there.

Without a “home port” in the Black Sea, NATO naval vessels could be stopped by Turkey from passing through the Bosphorus Strait to and from the Black Sea if war breaks out. The Treaty of Montreux on the Strait, the treaty governing the Bosphorus and Dardanelles through Istanbul in and out of the Black Sea, makes it clear that in a war, ships from belligerent countries WITHOUT a home port in the Black Sea can be prevented from passing through the Strait.

Media in the US and Europe have been propagating the general public about the situation between Russia and Ukraine for months now. Those media maintain that:

  • Russia has no more missiles.
  • Russia has no more tanks.
  • Russia has no more troops.

They have also propagated that Russian President Vladimir Putin is ill:

  • Pancreatic cancer.
  • Lung cancer.
  • Parkinson’s disease.
  • Alzheimer’s disease.

ALL OF THESE STATEMENTS ARE ALL FALSE. They have been plucked out of thin air, mostly by the British MI-6, which tries to portray Ukraine as a country that definitely has a chance of winning against Russia. Ukraine has no chance. They never had. Ukraine was lost the moment Russian troops crossed their border.

If/when more Russian troops gather in the Transnistrian region, the entire southwest of Ukraine will be liberated from the Nazi regime in Kiev. Ukraine will be cut off from the Black Sea. NATO doesn’t get its naval base, and Russia wins.

… Unless NATO finds an excuse to physically invade Ukraine — and then … it will be World War III.


Moldova’s Prime Minister Dorin Recean has said he thinks Russia plans to take over Chișinău airport to fly in Russian military reinforcements.

President Zelensky stated today that Ukraine believes such a plan is also in the works. Ukraine is now moving its troops to the border with Moldova (Transnistria). Photo below:

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said Moldova is likely to face the same fate as Ukraine. According to a video shared on twitter by Ukrainian news channel Nexta TV, the foreign minister says that “Moldova is now also eligible for this role”.
