Romanian foreign minister Titus Corlatean talks about the UK opening it’s border to Romania (and Bulgaria) in 2014 to anyone that wants to come to the UK.

The Ukrainian commentators fear over a union of the Republic of Moldova with Romania is going to paranoiac arguments in the last period.

But why this fear?
Because Ukraine knows that a part of its territory was taken from Romania by the Molotov-Ribbentrop (Stalin-Hitler) pact.

But this fear of a future union is not based on the normal evolution of a nation. The same nation (Romanian) is the majority population both in Romania and the Republic of Moldova. At a certain moment in history the REunion could be a normal and natural thing if, and only if the population decides so.

Using the same language, having the same culture and history are arguments that could help in the future this nation reunification!

But those natural arguments in favor of this union are not taken into account by the Ukrainian journalists and officials… no!

They see this fear of the union in the fact that in June there will be a joint meeting of the two governments of Romania and the Republic of Moldova…

For the Ukrainian commentators this joint meeting is to be the PROOF of the next union.
What?

The Governments of Romania and Hungary have a good history of joint meetings. There have been five joint meetings of the two governments until now!

For a while, Ukraine was US favorite in Eastern Europe in their attempt to limit the Russian sphere of influence. The Orange Revolution did not bring Ukraine in that stage so that it’s Euro—Atlantic evolution is irreversible. Moreover, the Gazprom army of Putin and Medvedev obtained, for a lower price of gas, the capitulation of Ukraine in front of Russia and the extension of the presence of the Russian fleet in Crimeea until 2042. Thus, any integration of Ukraine in NATO or EU in the next 31 years seems not reasonable. The Westernization of Ukraine remains from now on a nice, polite, diplomatic and convenient speech…

In those conditions, a smaller country, insignificant for Americans until recently, had to take the place of Ukraine in the American-Russian geo-political game: the Republic of Moldova. This reorientation of Americans coincided with the international efforts Romania did for raising the awareness about the need to bring the Republic of Moldova inside the European Union and thus, solve the Transnistrian conflict.
