20 parties have registered in the current election campaign. Many people say it is a too big number for such a small country as Moldova. At the same time, much more parties could take part in the election campaign.

„Russia has enormous natural resources, considerable scientific-technological capacity, and a powerful military. As China waxes, Russia is trying to assert itself in Ukraine, Georgia, and Central Asia. Like the old tsarist version, the new Russian empire relies on the strong ties of the Russian Slavic identity, an ethnic group that accounts for roughly four fifths of its 140 million people", writes Joel Kotkin in the newspaper Newsweek.

According to cited publication, Romania is among countries that in the future may be fighting for their autonomy against competing zones of influence.

Romania is in the group of so-called "The border areas", together with Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and U.K.

«Newsweek» says it's time to give up many of the notions we have about how to organize humanity. „Across the world a resurgence of tribal ties is creating more complex global alliances. Where once diplomacy defined borders, now history, race, ethnicity, religion, and culture are dividing humanity into dynamic new groupings", writes Newsweek.
