    The facts are noteworthy, but would be of use to give some sources for reference. Some of the informations seems unrealistic, but it of course depends of where the facts have been taken from.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/01/fastest-internet-countries-akamai_n_1467892.html#slide=924489

    And endless more sources all state that Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and The Netherlands have the fastest internet connections. No where is Moldova 3rd.

  15. Great article! This is the kind of info that are meant to
    be shared around the net. Shame on the search engines for no longer positioning this put up higher!
    Come on over and discuss with my website . Thank you =)

  16. I guess you love your country which is nice. But number 8 is acually taken out of context and looks like Propaganda because the information is either based on Russophobia or unconsidered.

    …………Russia still has 2,500 troops and 22,000 tons of ammunition in Transnistria………………..

    In Transnistria, there are 402 Russian, 492 – Transdnistrian and 355 Moldovan peacemakers.
    And so-called ammunition is actually what was inherited after the fall of Soviet Union.
    There was a full fratricidal war and think about how many more people could die if Russia hadn’t brought its peacemakers.

  17. Marius says:

    Ярослав i live in Moldova and its the best country ever.Russia transport ilegal guns and ammo to Transnistria but this would not stop us to defeat RUSSIA ARMY!!!!!!!
