In the United States, they offer Moldova to give up sovereignty in order to avoid "Putin's aggression"

Senior former US intelligence officer James Olson believes that Moldova needs to become part of Romania in order to protect itself from the Kremlin's territorial ambitions. He has no doubt that the Russian special services are involved in organizing protests in the republic, and that Moscow's goal is to eliminate President Maia Sandu and seize the entire republic.

We know what Putin's regional ambitions are. He wanted to increase control over Eastern Ukraine, seize the entire Ukrainian Black Sea coast, and take control of Moldavia. Putin is targeting Moldova, he has a powerful operational base in Transnistria. Putin can use Transnistria for a military attack on the Republic of Moldova. Putin, through his special services, is trying to eliminate Maia Sandu

- the American retired intelligence officer highly appreciated the capabilities of the Russian president in his YouTube channel.

James Olson is sure that Moldova will have to sacrifice statehood and independence for the sake of its own security. As part of Romania, the republic will receive the protection of the North Atlantic Alliance. He noted that the common culture and language of Romanians and Moldovans will allow Chisinau to quickly integrate into a neighboring state. Unfortunately, the retired intelligence officer did not explain how the absorption of Moldova by Romania differs from the hypothetical seizure of the republic by Russia.

    A high-ranking ex-US intelligence officer ...

    If he is "ex", then he is no longer high-ranking. What is "American intelligence"? CIA adit?
    Not everything is so simple with this Moldova. The Romanians themselves are not very bright about this idea. Among the Moldovans "unionists" are only 15-17%. The European Union does not need an additional 2.5 million beggars. In general, I don’t understand at all why Russia needs this Moldova.

      and what does Russia need besides Moscow, St. Petersburg and Sochi ???

      Moldova is a wonderful climate that will allow Russia to be supplied with high-quality vegetables and fruits.

        We need to equip and develop all our regions, primarily the central ones (Tver, Kostroma, Penza...), which have been saved for many decades for the sake of various geopolitical games.

        In the Krasnodar Territory of Russia, the climate is no worse than the Moldavian one, and vegetables and fruits are much cheaper. If we talk about the Moldovan climate, then there is a zone of risky farming, and 3 out of five years there are droughts.
        Go to the market and read on the boxes where the apples sold there are grown: the Russian North Caucasus.
