Macron's rehabilitation of relations with Russia without its political transformation, preceded by the liberation of the Ukrainian territory, may result in a robust Russian emphasis on European integration in the EU's eastern neighbourhood.
Moldova moves over the handicaps left by the oligarchic regime. Relations with the EU, as with other Western countries, have quickly returned to normality and some new promises of support to Moldova have been initiated.

The political events in Moldova complement the regional trends in the Eastern Partnership, where after Armenia in 2018 the oligarchic regimes of Ukraine and Georgia began to shake. However, the diminishing of the oligarchic influence must be a permanent and holistic objective, and in no case a temporary action aimed at a single oligarch.
