Russia is waging a brutal war of aggression against Ukraine. Nobody except Russia’s dictator knows the end goals of the invasion but there are reasonable fears that Putin might not stop in the Ukraine. After all, he makes no secret of his revanchist imperialism. No other country seems more immediately threatened to become the next victim than the small Republic of Moldova, another former Soviet Republic. The Russian Army is already present on its territory, in the non-recognized breakaway region of Transnistria. In this roundtable, eminent experts will discuss the current situation in Moldova, likely scenarios as well as possible instant responses by NATO and the EU to safeguard the country’s peace and restore its integrity.
