  1. Hey, pals! Moldovans simply do not want to buy into EU promises of better life any more. The public support for the country’s pro-EU trajectory is draining away (today polls show support at about 30% to 80% in 2013) as all the time and incessantly we have to struggle with implementing hundreds of regulations after signing an association agreement with the EU last year. As a result we’ve got sharp deterioration in all spheres of our life instead of expected raising the well-being of the people. At this rate soon we’ll start to live more badly than before!

  2. The protesters, however, bring EU flags to the rallies. In essence, it seems it doesn’t matter what the reason for such protests is, as long as it’s anti-governmental and can bring a certain number of people to the streets. At some point the radicals will take over from there.
