AUR Leader George Simion: ”I Hate This Artificial State Called Moldova”

After being banned from entry to Moldova by the pro-European administration in Chisinau, AUR President George Simion offered a shocking statement: he said he hated the artificial state called the Republic of Moldova.

This statement was offered during an interview with the national TV station Prima News in Romania, and it comes as a reply to his entry ban to Moldova, recently prolonged for another five years by the pro-European administration of Maia Sandu.

I am a unionist. I have always been a unionist and was president of Action in 2012. Practically, peacefully, democratically, by the will of both parties, we advocated for the union of the two Romanian states of today, therefore, for the abolition of the state of the Republic of Moldova, de facto, a Stalinist creation. I can’t stand, and I will never come to terms with this concept of Moldovan statehood. I fought against it.

There is a Bessarabian poet, Andrei Ciurunga, from Cahul, who wrote a poem that defines this situation very well: “It’s not my fault for my country / It’s not my fault that I tamed the jackals / And that I cried out with a pained soul / That I don’t give a single Ceahlău to all the Urals / And that I hate the Prut border.”

I hate this artificial state called the Republic of Moldova; I have said it countless times

He added that the Republic of Moldova would never enter the European Union, giving Romania and Moldova a similar relationship to Germany and Austria.

The European project is having difficulties at the moment. The Republic of Moldova will never enter the European Union and that does not mean de facto reunification, it means that we are like Germany and Austria. Or we Romanians on both banks of the Prut were separated by two criminals of history, two dictators, Stalin and Hitler, through the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, and I believe that the solution is in the current international treaties, in the current alliances of which we are a part, a union peaceful as the Germans did.

Of course, George Simion doesn’t hate the people of Moldova or the territories, but only its statehood, which he considers artificial. He explained his statement in the same interview.

The gentlemen from Chisinau don’t want to; they expelled me; they want to have their state; they want to have a government, parliament, and president; they want to have their borders; they want to support them from Alexander Soros to the World Bank, and other individuals who keep The Republic of Moldova not in a Romanian orbit at this moment, but in a German orbit, in an orbit that belongs to the spheres of international influence. But at this moment, the state of the Republic of Moldova does not have these Romanian elements of its statehood.

George Simion on the influence Germany has in Moldova

Does Moldova see the unification with Romania as a risk to its stability? It seems so unless President Maia Sandu or any other Moldovan official explains what it’s all about with George Simion, a Romanian Member of Parliament and famous militant for the union between the two sister countries, being banned in Moldova. Ukraine applied the same sanction.

Rumour has it Simion met in Kyiv with the former KGB officers, FSB, but this is not yet backed by proof. Romania’s PM asked for a justification from the two states for the measure applied against a Romanian Member of Parliament, but no public answer has been offered.

According to the latest opinion poll conducted in January this year, AUR has grown steadily in the voting intention of Romanians, and it is now at 18.4%. This sort of statement made this party grow, and unless a solid explanation is offered, George Simion will continue to grow even higher.

The current ruling coalition in Romania has just announced shared lists for the Europarliamentary elections in June; one of the reasons behind the decision is “blocking the extremists (such as AUR candidates) from entering the European Parliament.” Unfortunately for those who conceived this alliance, AUR is steadily growing, and many votes will go to the nationalist parties AUR and SOS.

The SOS leader Diana Sosoaca is also growing, especially after actions like when President Zelensky was prevented from delivering a speech in front of the Romanian Parliament for fear of nationalist protests.

This means that the Romanian nationalists, manifesting for the unification with Moldova, have a good chance of securing more seats in the European Parliament than ever before. This is why the pro-Europeans are concerned with the evolution of the unionist leaders in Romania, whose growth favours nationalist opinion in a place where this behaviour is not readily accepted – Brussels.
