In Moldova, the Russian boycott of wine has hit the country's exports. Moldova has accused Russia of virtual occupation of Transnistria, the ethnically Russian populated industrial area of the country.

The USA has not been slow in charging Putin of bullying Moldova using his Georgian template.

Transdniester is now in the news as Putin's next target. Described by a travel writer as a "Museum of Soviet Union Culture" the slither of territory appears to demonstrate a fondness for the old style communist lifestyle.

A fear in Russia is that Moldova may seek union with Romania. In Romania this has led to speculation as to Putin's intentions to grab the whole of Moldova.

Well, Dragostea Din Tei was something QI to come from Moldova.

A legend recounts prince Dragoș venturing towards the east while hunting bison. His favorite hound Molda was injured by the beast and drowned in the river which the prince named in honor of his fallen dog. The principality that came up around the river was called Moldova.

I'm not sure that I'm mad about that American blogger asserting that Romanian pronunciation is "crude".

What gives him the right to assert it as "wrong" that Chișinău is pronounced "KISH-i-now" and not - as he apparently wants - "Cheesy-new"?
