HELSINKI COMMISSION TO HOLD BRIEFING ON THE STATE OF DEMOCRACY IN MOLDOVA


(Washington, D.C.) Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) and Senator Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD), Co-Chairmen of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (U.S. Helsinki Commission), will hold a briefing entitled, “East or West? The future of Democracy in Moldova” on Wednesday, September 24 at 10:00 a.m. in room 1539 of the Longworth House Office Building. The briefing will examine the state of democracy in the Republic of Moldova as it prepares for elections next year. The discussion comes in the wake of Russia’s recent armed intervention in Georgia, and its warning to Moldova not to use force to seize back control of the breakaway region of Transdniestria – a “frozen conflict” territory of the former Soviet Union.

PANELISTS

The Honorable Nicolae Chirtoaca, Ambassador of the Republic of Moldova to the United States
