MOSCOW (Sputnik), Svetlana Alexandrova – Mass protests erupted in the Moldovan capital of Chisinau on Sunday to demand the government’s resignation, sparked by last year’s disappearance of 15 percent of the country’s total gross domestic product from three national banks.
"It's possible that the new movement in Moldova is to the US State Department what Frankenstein's monster was to Dr. Frankenstein – a creation no longer under its creator's control," David Swanson speculated.
"In any case, we ought to assist them in such and agree on a policy of non-interference by all outside nations and alliances," Swanson stressed.
Swanson further cited the former Soviet republic’s geographical positioning – wedged between Ukraine and Romania – as a potential target of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s eastward expansion.
"Last year NATO warned that Russia could attack Moldova – the sort of warning that is likely to be a projection of a NATO desire to occupy Moldova – something NATO is actually quite open about," he argued.
Official estimates said approximately 40,000 people took part in the demonstrations on Sunday, while the organizers claimed it had rallied some 100,000 people.
