The Romanian Senate is debating a proposal tabled by Diana Iovanovici Șoșoacă to annex the former Romanian territories occupied by present-day Moldova and Ukraine under the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact (1939).
According to article 3 of the draft bill: “Romania will annex the historical territories that it owned, respectively, Northern Bukovyna, Hertsa region, Bugeac (Cahul, Bolgrad, Izmail), historical Maramures and Snake Island.”
These territories are inhabited by 1 million people.
Ukraine would thus LOSE much of its present southwest, including “Snake Island!”

Word is coming in that the “Annexation” of “formerly Romanian territory” (i.e. Moldova”) would allegedly include the independent autonomous area of . . . . Transnistria! And upon the Annexation, Russian troops in Transnistria would allegedly be ordered to leave!
That would put a large weapons depot storage from the Soviet era, firmly into the hands of (NATO Member) Romania, and the amount of weapons in that depot would be enough to supply Ukraine for a full year in its fight with Russia!
Suppose the Russian troops are told by Moscow to stay? Will a fight erupt between Romania (NATO) and Russia?
This is getting very dirty, very fast.
