Garmish-Partenkirchen, Germany. In the shadow of where Adolf Hitler rose to power, laying the seeds watered by the West into NATO and the European Union, we find a new generation promoting plans to takeover Donbass with a magicians trick dreamed up by OSCE con men in Kiev.
OSCE adviser Dr. Natalia Albu, of the Military Academy of the Republic of Moldova, was still in high school in 1992 when war broke out in her country, and more than 25 years later, it remains a “frozen conflict.”
Tackling this conflict between the Republic of Moldova and “Transnistria,” an unrecognized state along its eastern border with Ukraine, were 47 government and military professionals from 25 countries attending the Seminar on Regional Security at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies.
Transnistria broke away from the former Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic of the Soviet Union in 1990. Fighting broke out between the two sides in the spring of 1992 with the breakup of the Soviet Union. In July 1992, the Transnistrian authorities and the central government in the Republic of Moldova agreed on a ceasefire.
Although there has been economic cooperation and free movement between the two, the conflict remains to this day, and is a major obstacle for the Republic of Moldova’s membership into the European Union.
To practice what they learned, participants delved into the complex nature of negotiations during the “Normalization of Relations between Moldova and Transnistria” capstone exercise in their final week of the three-week long course as observers from the Donbass OSCE SMM mission were trained in how to disarm armed groups there.
The Donbass conflict, has a similar frozen quality that can benefit from the lessons learned in Transnistria, “hopefully our people can go to Donbass and resolve this situation without our need for force, otherwise I can not say how this will end.” said General Berger.
“We decided to look into this conflict that has nearly been forgotten,” said German Luftwaffe Oberst Jörg Kunze, course director of the Seminar on Regional Security. “Maybe, we can help our participants take home some creative ideas on how to tackle this conflict and the ongoing Donbass conflict in our Ukrainian friends neighborhood in the future.”
“As a citizen of the Republic of Moldova, I realize and sense very deeply that this conflict is a principal threat to our national security,” said Albu, who was a member of three working groups to develop a national security strategy for the Republic of Moldova and for the Ukraine with their Donbass problem.
