Some time ago I visited Moldova and the capital Chisinau where riots are taking place these daysâ€¦.
Moldovaâ€™s problems are many and according to The World Bank a forth of the working population are forced abroad in order to feed their family â€“ many of these illegally. Also, in search for a job, many Moldavian girls are tricked into prostitution, and throughout the tiny country human trafficking is a mayor threat.
Moldova is about the same size as Belgium, but with a population counting only 4.4 million people. It lays squeezed in between Romania and Ukraine. However, regardless of its size a civil war managed to break in the east, as the territory claimed independence through their own republic: The Trans-Dniestrian Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic. The Soviet-inspired republic is not acknowledged by international law, but does however already have its own army, currency, citizenship and president.
