I did not connect this text with Moldova in my mind.

The economy in Moldova has been abysmal forever and the stolen billion has not impacted the daily lives of the people here yet, this is still to come.

I do not think that the situation in Moldova is similar to Ukraine in that respect (EU membership, etc). Moldovans would not care about the promises of the EU membership, most of them are already EU citizens and have been for a while. Most Moldovans who are ethnic Romanians can easily get Romanian passports and most of them did (Romania is a full EU member). Close to a third of them live and work in the EU nowadays I was told (and they can do it legally as EU citizens on their Romanian passports). Many kids who left with their parents when they were very young come back for holidays to visit their grandparents and they often switch to Italian between themselves (because it is becoming easier for them than Romanian). So, very few Moldovans would care about Moldova joining the EU, they already have EU passports. And in addition to that they can also get Russian passports (for those who were born in the USSR), which is often the choice of ethnic Russians (but also some ethnic Romanians) living here. With those Russian passports people leave to work in Russia. So most of Moldovans already are either EU or Russian citizens and sometimes both and promising EU membership for Moldova to them is not something they would view as a big thing.
