Breaking News! Violent Anti-Communist Revolt In Moldavia
This is happening in the last country in Europe run by a communist regime.
Moldavia, a historical province of Romania was forcefully ceded under the threat of invasion to the Soviet Union following the 1939 Ribbentrop-Molotov pact between Hitler and Stalin. The majority of the population is Romanian (78%) followed and Ukrainian (8.3%) and Russian (5.9%) minorities. The official language according to the official communist propaganda is Moldavian; in fact the so-called Moldavian language is nothing more than 100% Romanian spoken with a regional accent.
Since the 1990's break-up of the former Soviet Union, Moldavia is ruled by the Moldavian Communist Party, a client of the Russian Federation. Although the Moldavian government declared itself "independent", they are still receiving their orders from Moscow.


Election 'was fraudulent'

Tear gas and jets of water were blasted at protesters by security forces defending the parliament building in the capital, Chisinau. The presidential office, opposite, was also attacked.

Representatives of opposition parties are among the protesters.

They believe the election result was fraudulent.

The Mayor of Chisinau, Dorin Chirtoaca, who is deputy head of the opposition Liberal Party, said the protests were justified "because people did not vote for the communists in such large numbers".

The communists won 50% of votes in the election declared "fair" by observers.

BBC reports:

Students in Moldova have attacked the country's parliament in protest at the victory of the governing Communist Party in Sunday's general election.

Witnesses say crowds poured into the building through smashed ground-floor windows and shortly after hurled furniture out and set it alight.

More than 30 people - including protesters and police - have been injured, medical officials said.

President Vladimir Voronin has called for an end to the "destabilisation".

"Challenging the results of the election is no more than a pretext," Interfax news agency quoted Mr Voronin as telling a cabinet meeting.

EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana has urged all sides in the former Soviet state to refrain from violence. Russia has also voiced its concern.

Alexandru Oleinic, an opposition MP, told Reuters that the leaders of the three main opposition parties were now holding talks with the president and Prime Minister Zinaida Greceanii.

He gave no details of what the talks would entail.

Interfax said that Mr Voronin would make an address to the nation on Tuesday evening.
