– And Another Region Seeks To Join Russia (ZeroHedge, April 7, 2014):
In the days after the Crimean referendum, we presented our take on “who is next” in the great annexation scramble and said that the most likely region to enter the USSR 2.0 next is Moldova’s Transnistira region, where in a 2006 referendum some 97% of the population had voted to become part of Russia.
Moments ago this appears to have been confirmed after the president of the territory said the following, via Bloomberg:
- TRANSNISTRIA SEEKING TO JOIN RUSSIA AFTER WINNING INDEPENDENCE
- MOLDOVA’S TRANSNISTRIA REGION SEEKS TO JOIN RUSSIA: PRESIDENT
- TRANSNISTRIA PRESIDENT SHEVCHUK SPEAKING TO REPORTERS ON RUSSIA
One thing is certain: the “west” will not be happy as the Russian territorial expansion continues.
