Protesters have clashed with police and broken into the parliament building in Moldovan capital Chisinau, after lawmakers approved the appointment of a pro-EU politician to the post of prime minister.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the protests in Moldova against a billion dollar banking fraud which looks remarkably ‘Made in Europe’ – i.e. similar to banking heists in Iceland and Ireland. They also look at the UK property companies raking in the profits off the government’s ‘Help to Buy’ scheme. In the second half, Max continues his interview with investment banker, Ned Naylor Leyland, about the latest in gold markets.

3 features highlighting the east/west orientation split in society in Moldova (and its autonomous/separatist regions).

1. Moldova - Tug-of-War over Europe’s Poorest Country (apr 2014)
2. Some citizens voice support for joining Russia in Odessa, Transnistria and Moldova (apr 2014)
3. Moldova′s Gagauz look to the east (june 2014)

The political conflict over Ukraine is also threatening to spill over into Moldova. Russia and Romania are already currying favor with the country’s citizens.

Like in Ukraine, opinion is split in the former Soviet country. While many Moldovans want to see closer relations with the European Union, others feel an affinity to Russia. Until now Russia has been the only country Moldovans could travel to without a visa. The EU recently decided to lift certain visa restrictions, however. Next-door Romania, meanwhile, wants to go a step further and secure unification with Moldova; EU passports are already being issued to Moldovan citizens with Romanian roots.
Some citizens and activists in Odessa, Transnistria, and Moldova favour joining the Russian Federation.
As Moldova prepares to sign an association agreement with the EU, the sympathies of its Gagauz minority lie with Moscow.
