NATO’s Vershbow Warns Against Moves To Bring Transdniester ‘Closer To Russia’

NATO Deputy Secretary-General Alexander Vershbow has warned against attempts to bolster Moscow-backed rebels in Moldova as Kyiv scrambles to quell a separatist uprising in eastern Ukraine.

Speaking to RFE/RL ahead of his visit to Moldova next week, Vershbow said Moldova was facing “increasing pressure” due to the crisis in Ukraine.

He called on Moscow to “respect Moldova’s territorial integrity” and said the alliance would look “very negatively” at any attempt to bring Moldova’s breakaway Transdniester region “closer to Russia.”

Vershbow said he would discuss efforts to increase Moldova’s military capacities during his visit to Chisinau.

Moldova is not a NATO member but joined the alliance’s Partnership for Peace program in 1994.

The standoff in Ukraine, where government troops have been fighting rebels in the Russian-leaning east following Russia’s annexation of Crimea, has sparked fears Transdniester could be Moscow’s next target.

NATO’s supreme allied commander in Europe, U.S. Air Force General Philip Breedlove, warned in March that Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s eastern border were well positioned to invade Transdniester. [!]

    Nuland the wicked witch from the West, really is a pathetic figure after who leaked phone call. She should have lost her job at a minimum, yet she still remains, goes to show how deplorable the Obama regime really is.

      Yes but don’t forget it isn’t as if Nuland pulled the 5 billion democracy dollars out of her own pocket. Who else is in agreement?

      We need a graphic with all the USAID, NED’s, think tanks, MIC’s, MSM’s, corporations and persons of high rank taking advantage of their publicly entrusted position and especially how they are linked. McCain and Cheney are on there of course. Then you get the idea of the whole sticky wicket the antiwar/restore the republic movement is up against.

      Senator McCain has been chairman of the IRI (International Republican Institute) since 1993, an organization that operates in 60 countries and is budgeted by millions of US taxpayer dollars each year. (Sarah Hamburger article on Thirdworldtraveler).
