WASHINGTON — Today, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action to counter the Government of the Russian Federation’s (GoR) persistent malign influence campaigns and systemic corruption in Moldova by imposing sanctions on nine individuals and 12 entities. The individuals and entities sanctioned today include oligarchs widely recognized for capturing and corrupting Moldova’s political and economic institutions and those acting as instruments of Russia’s global influence campaign, which seeks to manipulate the United States and its allies and partners, including Moldova and Ukraine. The designations include former Moldovan government official Vladimir Plahotniuc, who engaged in state capture by exerting control over and manipulating key sectors of Moldova’s government, including the law enforcement, electoral, and judicial sectors.
“The sanctions imposed today expose not only Russia’s covert strategy in Moldova, but also demonstrate how corruption undermines the rule of law,” said Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian E. Nelson. “Russian influence operations attempt to exploit weaknesses in target countries in order to destabilize them from within. The United States continues to support Moldovan efforts to combat corruption and counter Russian influence.”
For years, the GoR has supported influence and destabilization campaigns, which often involve weaponizing corruption to further its goals. While the GoR pushes its narrative by supporting influence agents, it simultaneously takes advantage of corruption to advance its own interests.
ACTS OF CORRUPTION
OFAC is designating former Moldovan government official Vladimir Plahotniuc (Plahotniuc), a former Moldovan Member of Parliament who served as both de facto leader and elected chair of the Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM).
Plahotniuc maintained control over the country’s law enforcement apparatus to target political and business rivals. Specifically, Plahotniuc directed Moldovan law enforcement to focus investigations on individuals and entities that were in political opposition to him and the PDM in advance of elections in 2018.
Plahotniuc also used Moldovan government officials as intermediaries to bribe law enforcement officials in order to maintain their loyalty and further cement his control over Moldova. In 2018, Plahotniuc ordered Moldovan government ministers to pass and implement proposals to increase financial incentives to law enforcement, to further buy their allegiance.
Plahotniuc controlled the judicial system and used Moldovan courts to manipulate and invalidate the June 2018 mayoral election in Chisinau. In a separate occurrence, Plahotniuc closed voting stations in areas where his party was not expected to do well.
Plahotniuc also maintained control of key media outlets, further enabling his influence and ability to exert leverage over the government to target his opponents and protect himself and his allies.
Plahotniuc explicitly engaged in corrupt arrangements with Moldovan government officials. For example, Plahotniuc arranged for the relative of a high-ranking Moldovan government official to obtain a key business position, in exchange for the official’s support in appointing a Moldovan energy entity of Plahotniuc’s choosing. Plahotniuc also attempted to bribe Moldovan politicians to switch political parties.
OFAC is designating Plahotniuc pursuant to E.O. 13818 for being a former government official, who is responsible for or complicit in, or who has directly or indirectly engaged in corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery. The State Department imposed visa restrictions on Plahotniuc in January 2020 under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act for his involvement in significant corruption. Plahotniuc and his immediate family members are generally ineligible for visas to the United States.
RUSSIA’S EFFORTS TO SUBVERT MOLDOVAN DEMOCRACY
Russia has attempted to subvert democracy around the world through both overt and covert influence operations. Recently, as Russia faces military setbacks and global outrage over its brutal actions in Ukraine, Russia’s operatives have considered increasingly desperate measures to prevent further erosion of its influence.
Ilan Mironovich Shor (Shor) is a Moldovan politician and chairman of the Shor Party, a populist Moldovan political party. He was previously arrested on money laundering and embezzlement charges related to the 2014 theft of $1 billion from Moldovan banks.
In advance of the 2021 Moldovan elections, Russia planned to undermine Moldovan president Maia Sandu and return Moldova to Russia’s sphere of influence. To support this effort, Shor worked with Russian individuals to create a political alliance to control Moldova’s parliament, which would then support several pieces of legislation in the interests of the Russian Federation. As of June 2022, Shor had received Russian support and the Shor Party was coordinating with representatives of other oligarchs to create political unrest in Moldova. In June 2022, Shor worked with Moscow-based entities to undermine Moldova’s EU bid as the vote for candidate status was underway.
Shor’s wife is the Russian pop singer Sara Lvovna Shor, who was decorated by Putin as an honored artist of Russia.
OFAC is designating Ilan Mironovich Shor pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being responsible for or complicit in, or for having directly or indirectly engaged or attempted to engage in interference in a United States or other foreign government election for or on behalf of, or for the benefit of, directly or indirectly, the Government of the Russian Federation.
OFAC is designating the Shor Party pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being owned or controlled by, or for having acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, Shor, a person designated pursuant to E.O. 14024.
OFAC is designating Sara Lvovna Shor pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being the spouse of Shor, a person designated pursuant to E.O. 14024.
In advance of the 2021 Moldovan elections, Igor Yuryevich Chayka (Chayka), in conjunction with Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, developed detailed plans to undermine Moldovan president Maia Sandu and return Moldova to Russia’s sphere of influence. Chayka is the son of Yuriy Chayka, a member of Russia’s Security Council who was designated pursuant to E.O. 14024 on April 6, 2022. Chayka used his father’s connections and influence to amass and secure his business empire.
Chayka brokered an alliance between supporters of Ilan Shor and the Moldovan Socialist Party (PSRM), represented by Igor Dodon (Dodon), the former President of Moldova who was recently indicted for corruption by Moldovan authorities. In exchange for the promise of Russian support in the election, Chayka obtained backing for legislation preferred by the Kremlin, including a law to strip Moldova’s president of control of the country’s intelligence agency. The GoR used Chayka’s companies as a front to funnel money to the collaborating political parties in Moldova. Some of these illicit campaign funds were earmarked for bribes and electoral fraud.
OFAC designated Chayka pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being responsible for or complicit in, or for having directly or indirectly engaged or attempted to engage in interference in a United States or other foreign government election for or on behalf of, or for the benefit of, directly or indirectly, the Government of the Russian Federation. OFAC also designated Chayka pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being the adult child of Yuriy Chayka, a person designated pursuant to E.O. 14024.
Chayka owns various Russia-located enterprises: OOO Aqua Solid, OOO Ekogrupp, OOO Inzhiniring.rf, and OOO Inovatsii Sveta. OOO Ekogrupp owns OOO Khartiya, which in turn owns Proekt-Ekologiya, OOO Region-Comfort, and OOO Mezhmunitsipalnoe Avtotransportnoyoe Predpreyatie. OFAC designated these entities pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being owned by a person designated pursuant to E.O. 14024.
Ivan Alesksandrovich Zavorotnyi (Zavorotnyi), a Russian national, is an associate of Chayka who serves on the board of many of Chayka’s companies. OFAC designated Zavorotnyi for being or having been a senior executive officer of OOO Inovatsii Sveta. OFAC designated OOO Agro-Region and OOO Zolotoi Vek for being owned by Zavorotnyi.
Yuriy Igorevich Gudilin (Gudilin), a political technologist and former Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) officer, coordinated efforts in 2020 and 2021 to influence the outcome of Moldova’s elections. Gudilin worked closely with Russian nationals Olga Yurievna Grak (Grak) and Leonid Mikhailovich Gonin (Gonin) on these efforts.
Gudilin, Grak, and Gonin worked as advisors to former Moldovan President Igor Dodon during the 2020 Moldovan presidential election. During the course of the campaign, the Russian consultants also met with a large number of members of the PSRM, which at the time was led by Dodon. In these meetings, Gudilin and Grak pressured senior PSRM members to accept their assistance and guidance by promising they would weigh in favorably with the Russian Presidential Administration with regard to Moldovan government requests for assistance. In 2020, Gudilin also facilitated the setup of a payment channel using the Tether cryptocurrency, likely for funding election influence operations. In 2021, FSB-linked political advisors proposed using the Russian Ministry of the Interior to locate Moldovan citizens living in Russia and convince them to vote. In addition, Russian mass media would promote messages useful to Dodon’s campaign to Moldovan citizens living in Russia.
Also in 2021, an FSB associate strategized with Chayka regarding production of propaganda videos intended to influence the Moldovan electorate. The intent was likely to decrease the voting participation of the Moldovan diaspora and of pro-European voters, and to increase the voting participation of pro-Russian voters. The FSB associate planned to travel to Moldova with Gudilin, likely in connection with production of the videos.
Although its efforts to influence Moldova’s 2020 and 2021 elections failed, the Kremlin continues to organize efforts to return a pro-Russian government to power. Recognizing the loss of popular support for Moldova’s old pro-Russia political elite, Gudilin’s team offered support to an opposition political group, the National Alternative Movement (NAM). These influence efforts are closely coordinated with Moscow’s use of energy as a political weapon against the Moldovan government. Among its efforts to undermine the government, Gudilin’s team planned to hire a permanent team to post comments on social media and online broadcasts. Gudilin worked with a manager for the U.S.-sanctioned Internet Research Agency to set up this “troll factory.”
One example of Russia’s increasingly desperate measures to prevent further erosion of its influence is that, as part of one scheme proposed to Gudilin, pro-Russian actors would stage a series of vehicle break-ins in Moldova, which pro-Russian disinformation outlets would falsely blame on Ukrainian refugees.
OFAC designated Gudilin, Grak, and Gonin pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being responsible for or complicit in, or for having directly or indirectly engaged or attempted to engage in, interference in a United States or other foreign government election for or on behalf of, or for the benefit of, directly or indirectly, the Government of the Russian Federation.
ENTITIES SUPPORTING RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE OPERATIONS
In addition to his role in the GoR’s efforts to influence elections in Moldova and undermine the country’s current pro-Western government, Igor Chayka also has connections to Russian cybercriminals. In 2018, Chayka and his associate Aleksei Valeryevich Troshin (Troshin), a Russian national, invested millions of dollars to set up the National Engineering Corporation (NIK) – ostensibly, an engineering firm working on technological projects for Russian businesses and state enterprises. However, U.S.-designated cybercriminal Maksim Yakubets (Yakubets) was involved in setting up the NIK offices and its hiring practices. Yakubets’ employment at NIK provided cover for his ongoing criminal activities linked to the hacking group known as Evil Corp. Yakubets and Evil Corp were designated in December of 2019.
As part of his activity at NIK, Yakubets continued his work on behalf of the Russian intelligence services. Yakubets was previously designated by OFAC for providing support to the FSB. Yakubets has since developed a relationship with all three major Russian intelligence services, including personally meeting with SVR Director Sergey Naryshkin.
OFAC designated NIK pursuant to E.O. 14024 for operating or having operated in the technology sector of the Russian Federation economy. OFAC designated Troshin pursuant to E.O. 14024 for being or having been a leader, official, senior executive officer, or member of the board of directors of NIK.
As a result of today’s action, all property and interests in property of the designated persons described above that are in the United States or in the possession or control of U.S. persons are blocked and must be reported to OFAC. In addition, any entities that are owned, directly or indirectly, individually or in the aggregate, 50 percent or more by one or more blocked persons are also blocked. Unless authorized by a general or specific license issued by OFAC, or exempt, OFAC’s regulations generally prohibit all transactions by U.S. persons or within (or transiting) the United States that involve any property or interests in property of designated or otherwise blocked persons. In addition, financial institutions and other persons that engage in certain transactions or activities with the sanctioned entities and individuals may expose themselves to sanctions or be subject to an enforcement action. The prohibitions include the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any designated person, or the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.
The power and integrity of OFAC sanctions derive not only from OFAC’s ability to designate and add persons to the SDN List, but also from its willingness to remove persons from the SDN List consistent with the law. The ultimate goal of sanctions is not to punish, but to bring about a positive change in behavior. For information concerning the process for seeking removal from an OFAC list, including the SDN List, please refer to OFAC’s Frequently Asked Question 897 here. For detailed information on the process to submit a request for removal from an OFAC sanctions list, please click here.
Building upon the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, E.O. 13818 was issued on December 20, 2017, in recognition that the prevalence of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, had reached such scope and gravity as to threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.

This article is written for people who have knowledge in International Relations or Law. This analysis that I will publish in this post are from public information! Let’s start first with a press statement made by a General Anton Gămurari from the Republic of Moldova, ( you can find the whole article here in Romanian!) : “In the ’88, ’89, I largely served the city center, where the Inturist Hotel and the Chişinău Hotel were, restaurants and other institutions. The Inturist Hotel ( today it is called the National Hotel) was served by two services – the Ministry of the Interiohttp://plopandrei.com/plop-andrei-i-was-arrested-in-canada-for-the-anti-communist-revolution-i-am-being-deported-because-of-corruption-and-incompetence-in-the-canadian-governmentr and the KGB. From there, from that center, grew some people who became very rich in the republic, including Plahotniuc. ” From 1945 to 1991, Moldova was part of the Soviet Union, and all hotels in Moldova were state-owned! Let’s not forget that during this period it was the cold war. The Cold War was a period of geopolitical tension between the United States and the Soviet Union and their respective allies, the Western Bloc and the Eastern Bloc, which began following World War II. Historians do not fully agree on its starting and ending points, but the period is generally considered to span the 1947 Truman Doctrine (12 March 1947) to the 1991 Dissolution of the Soviet Union (26 December 1991). From 1945 to 1991 it was very difficult to leave Moldova or visit Moldova, to leave the country or to visit you had to have authorization after you were checked by the KGB. Because there were very few tourists, there were few hotels, and which they were, they were controlled by the KGB! In 1991 the Soviet Union collapsed and some might write : that the Soviet Union was collapsing and that pimping was possible in 1988, 1989 or 1990! in other socialist republics in the Soviet Union it would have been possible but not in the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic! Because during this period in the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic the Minister of Internal Affairs was Vladimir Voronin! (In 1985 Voronin was appointed head of section in the Council of Ministers of the MSSR. From 1985 till 1989 he worked as First Secretary of the Bender Town Committee of CPM. In 1989-1990 was in office of Minister of Home Affairs of the MSSR.In 1993 Voronin was the co-president of the Organizational Committee for the creation of the Communist Party of the Republic of Moldova. In 1994 he was elected First Secretary of CC of the CPRM. In the same year he ran for the President of the Republic of Moldova. Mr. Voronin was in office of President of the Republic of Moldova during April 4, 2001-September 11, 2009. ) The most important institutions in the Republic of Moldova ( as the General Prosecutor’s Office, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Government of the Republic of Moldova, the Presidency of the Republic of Moldova) are located on Stefan cel Mare Boulevard, and the distance between the National Hotel and the Ministry of Internal Affairs is one kilometer, I don’t think there is anyone to say that the Minister of Internal Affairs did not know what was happening at the National Hotel (Inturist Hotel), especially pimping actions! I assume that Plahotniuc also knows Voronin from the same period!
I have previously written what Plahotniuc was doing at this hotel at that time! When a tourist came to Moldova and the National Hotel, Plahotniuc, was accommodated through Moldovan girls who also worked for the KGB, they provoked tourists, these tourists were filmed with hidden cameras as they had sex and then blackmailed! The same tactic was used by Vladimir Putin against the Attorney General, who is investigating the Yeltsin family! In April 1999, then FSB Chief Vladimir Putin and Interior Minister Sergei Stepashin held a televised press conference in which they discussed a video that had aired nationwide on 17 March on the state-controlled RTR channel which showed a naked man very similar to Skuratov, in bed with two young women. This video was released after he had been investigating numerous corrupt officials including Alexander Mamut and both Pavel Borodin and Vladimir Putin and had begun looking into charges of corruption by President Boris Yeltsin and his associates: the video was said to serve as kompromat. the tourist returned to his country and was then contacted by an employee of the embassy of the Soviet Union, who was usually from the GRU or KGB! It acts according to the position of the tourist! Both FSB and GRU were interested in promoting tourists in their careers and in being useful in obtaining information! On December 25, 1991, the Soviet flag flew over the Kremlin in Moscow for the last time. Representatives from Soviet republics (Ukraine, Georgia, Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan) had already announced that they would no longer be part of the Soviet Union. The KGB branch in Moldova has lost contact with Moscow! And many soldiers, people who worked for KGB ended up without jobs! those who had access to information sold them to those in the West, those who had access to weapons sold them at a very cheap price, including to terrorists! And those who provoke tourists with Moldovan girls ended up pimping! With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 Moldova became an independent republic. In 1993 Voronin refounded the Moldavian Communist Party as the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova (PCRM), becoming its president a year later. Victor Popescu, a former officer from Fulger (formerly OMON), revealed that in 1993 he caught Vladimir Plahotniuc while “selling prostitutes” on the 13th floor of a building in Chisinau. It happened in 1993, when I found Vlad Plahotniuc on the thirteenth floor, where he was selling prostitutes. Yes, I found out where he took them. He was the head of these crimes. We had only three boys in the police at the time. I was soon released from service at Fulger! With Putin coming to power in Russia, the contact between Moscow and the KGB branches has been restored, only now they are called FSB and not KGB and the local branch of FSB in Moldova is called the Information and Security Service! In 2001 the PCRM won parliamentary elections with slightly more than 50 percent of the vote, ending a decade of rule by a reformist government. Also through the kompromat, Vladimir Plahotniuc became the director of Petrom Moldova in 2001, During the communist government of 2001-2009, protected by Voronin, Plahotniuc seized business and quarreled with all who stood in his way, when the foundations of the Plahotniuc empire were laid. During Voronin’s second term as president, almost the entire business (private enterprises, financial flows, administrative positions) changed its leaders, benefiting from this massive change of ownership and influence, becoming none other than Plahotniuc, a single person who focused on all state structures and significant business in Moldova. “If we talk about Romanian politicians, it is worth mentioning here a lot of PSD members: Adrian Năstase and Ion Iliescu, when they were in power, they strongly promoted Plahotniuc as a basic man in the power system in the Republic of Moldova. Then came Ponta, Corlățean, Meleșcanu and other smaller ones who held him in their arms and endorsed Plahotniuc, including in the West, as a guarantor of the stability of the Republic of Moldova. And let’s not forget Norica Nicolai, the most ardent agent of the oligarch in the European institutions, especially in the European Parliament. Parliamentary elections were held in Moldova on 5 April 2009. Following the announcement of preliminary election results on 6 April 2009, which showed the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova (PCRM) victorious, winning approximately 50% of the votes, the opposition rejected the results, accusing the authorities of falsification in the course of counting the votes and demanded new elections. Opposition have organized protest demonstrations in the center of Chişinău on April 6th and 7th. The demonstration spun out of control and escalated into a riot on April 7th, with protesters attacking the parliament building and the presidential palace. ( You can read more information below) Also, Plahotniuc helped the Russian mafia launder $ 23 billion. He coordinated the disappearance of one billion dollars, 18 percent of Moldova’s GDP. He is a man who put a country on logs. He is also guilty of depopulating the country, of corrupting institutions, of money laundering. It represents a mafia structure that captured a state. I wrote above that tourists who were filmed with a hidden camera having sex are blackmailed, Russian secret services are interested in being promoted in their careers, and for that the Russians have created brilliant plans for their tourists to be promoted! I think I should write that among the Romanian tourists who provide services for Russians working in state institutions in Romania were / are presidential advisers, journalists, deputies, businessmen, people working in SRI and SIE, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ambassadors of Romania accredited to European Union countries! Any student from the Republic of Moldova knows that Plahotniuc worked for Voronin and Plahotniuc also helped Dodon become president but the Romanians are the ones who promoted Plahotniuc in Washington. Russian politics has become very sophisticated, are smarter and because of this the Republic of Moldova is not a member of the EU and NATO, although the USA has high-performance technology and enormous financial resources. Plahotniuc was presented by the Romanians in Washington as being against the Russians, and in Moldova everyone knew who Plahotniuc was!If a person was against Plahotniuc, he tried to corrupt him with money, if in most cases Moldovans accepted the money, who refused the money went to provocations, criminal cases ordered by prosecutors, police! and those who went abroad, Plahotniuc with the help of the Romanians tried to prove that the person was a Russian spy and that he was trying to discredit him. all the information collected from the Romanians was sent to the Russians by Plahotniuc. and the Russians sent their agents to contact the person who was against Plahotniuc so that they could see the counterintelligence services and that was the end of the Russians’ job! Because the person who was a problem for Plahotniuc was still destroyed by these counterintelligence services! Americans believe that if Plahotniuc helped them put a person in a leadership position, for example the director of intelligence and security in Moldova, they begin to believe that he (the director) is their man but the reality is that the man of the Russians will be promoted and support
ed by the Americans but who will do the Russian policy. If a person who is not controlled by the Russians tries to get in touch with the Americans directly, the Russians mobilize all human resources for that person to be destroyed, and for that they usually turn to the Romanians! Romania is a NATO member, they are considered reliable partners, they buy weapons from Americans worth billions! and Americans will never quarrel with Romanians over a person! Even if the Americans understood that the person is right, they will watch as the Romanians destroy him! If the Americans had analysts on the ex-Soviet space, Crimea would have been part of Ukraine today, and Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine were now members of the EU and NATO! but this will not happen in the future!! Considering that now is summer and most of the deputies from Poland and Canada are on vacation! I will address the Polish and Canadian parliaments to set up committees to investigate the director of the Agencja Bezpieczeństwa Wewnętrznego (internal security agency) from Poland and director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service for corruption. I just want to let you know that in the summer of 2017, on the first day I arrived in Warsaw, I was in the Polish Parliament, and after the meeting I went directly to the Agencja Bezpieczeństwa Wewnętrznego (Internal Security Agency). At Agencja Bezpieczeństwa Wewnętrznego (internal security agency) I talked to a Polish man, when I asked to be a defender of Moldovans and Romanians whom I suspected of spying for Russia, he began to ask me about intuition! moreover, they started collaborating with these Moldovans / Romanians who wanted to kill me! and they, the Poles with the Moldovans and the Romanians to challenge against a person who was a member of solidarity and who had an enormous role in Poland’s accession to NATO. I will ask the parliamentary commissions to investigate acts of corruption and the Romanians and Moldovans with whom they collaborated to be accused of espionage in favor of Russia! I mean all Romanians / Moldovans involved in my case!
all, without exception!
All Agencja Bezpieczeństwa Wewnętrznego and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service had to ask some questions to Moldovans and Romanians: why did you follow him? who paid you to follow him? what job did you have before you started following him? how much money did you receive and how much money do you have in your account now? who recruited you? why did you follow him and not ..? why do you avoid meeting him? Poles and Canadians could solve the problem in 48 hours but they didn’t want to! I also want to say that I have never worked for an institution in Moldova or Romania! And I am ready to pass a polygraph test in front of all NATO member states that I was not and I am not an agent / spy! Also that I am in perfect health and that I am not going to commit suicide!

The pimp Vlad Plahotniuc was included in the Global Magnitsky Act sanctions list!
The Office for Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Treasury found that Vlad Plahotniuc is responsible for corruption in particularly large proportions.
American authorities have confirmed that Vlad Plahotniuc captured and corrupted the judicial and rule of law institutions of the Republic of Moldova.
Plahotniuc used money from corruption and political influence to eliminate political rivals and subjugate the country’s judiciary.
I am asking you to publish the list of people who took bribes from the pimp Plahotniuc, including Romanian and American officials, and to ban them from holding public positions!
The Americans turned a blind eye to all the crimes committed by Vladimir Plahotniuc and now that he is no longer useful to them, they included him in the list of Global Magnitsky Act sanctions!
the lady in the picture with Vlad Plahotniuc is from the meeting at the US State Department (the US Department of State), with Victoria Nuland, the assistant for European and Eurasian Affairs of the US Secretary of State.
As for the list of Romanian officials (over the Prut) who took bribes from Plahotniuc, they should include diplomats, ministers, directors of intelligence services, deputies/senators, and if they published the entire list of Moldovan politicians who ate out of his hand Plahotniuc – well, the entire elite of Moldova (PAS, PSRM, PD, etc..) should be dismissed and early elections organized!
Why hasn’t Plahotniuc been brought to Moldova yet? it’s very simple: if he talks more videos of corruption will come out
Arrest the Americans who took the bribe and protected Plahotniuc!
dear Americans, you saved Moldova from a pimp, we will be very grateful if you stop protecting rapist waiters (who rape the women, mothers, daughters, wives of political opponents and then try to open a criminal case against them as if these raped women were prostitutes)!
I notice that some drink champagne like Valeriu Pasa, I also published an article about his wife who worked for Plahotniuc and there is also the famous picture where he (Valeriu Pasa) participates in a meeting with Plahotniuc!
Pasha Valeriu also gives us moral lessons! But it is enough to go to the profile of his wife Ekaterina Miscisina,
to see pictures of her on the Prime television station that belongs to Plahotniuc! When your wife works/worked for Plahotniuc you still have the guts to come and give us moral lessons! They keep trying to invent all kinds of legends, but this doesn’t work anymore! Their problem was that they thought that the Moldovans would believe them again, but they all understood what was happening!
