Putin Sets His Sights on the Next Country: “Russia is Preparing for War”

Russia continues its internationally unlawful war of aggression against Ukraine. However, Russian President Putin is reportedly setting his sights on another country.

Jason Jay Smart, a correspondent for the Kyiv Post, citing the U.S.-based think tank Institute for the Study of War on his X-channel, writes, “Russia is preparing for war in Moldova. At the beginning of 2023, Russia launched a campaign to destabilize Moldova. Russia could renew these efforts to divert international attention from the war in Ukraine.”

For months, there has been concern in Moldova that Russia aims to take control of the country. Moldova, located between Romania and Ukraine in Southeastern Europe, is one of the smallest countries on the continent with about 2.6 million inhabitants. It was part of the Soviet Union in 1940 and gained its independence in 1991 with the collapse of the USSR.
