MAULING MOLDOVA
The 'referendum' could be a trend, so the oppositi on to it

   Another crisis is slowly erupting in the 'never heard of' region of Transdnestr (Moldova). In a referendum having varied definitions for regional powers, this sliver of a territory was differentially poised to take command of its own future. The territory that proclaimed 'independence' from Moldova in 1990 voted on whether or not it should integrate with Russia.

Subsequently, the affirmative poll verdict - which was already a foregone The voice could be ‘for Russia’, so forget it..conclusion given the pro-Russian governing authorities - is sure to be interpreted in different ways. While the European Union rejected the complete exercise, the Russians magnanimously labelled it as an 'expression of people's will'. The 'results' would surely have more symbolism than legality, what with the fact that it would find least support of the major powers. Supporting such moves would send a signal to the Slavic population elsewhere of the availability of Russia as their mentor. That gesture, even if symbolic, would not only strengthen Russia's stand and prestige, but also jeopardise western designs. And not many western nations would accept that.
