There is currently no possibility for Moldova to join NATO due to the long-term influence of Russian propaganda on public discourse, Moldovan President Maia Sandu said at the Munich Security Conference on Feb. 18.

"When we see what Russia is doing, it becomes clear that neutrality does not protect us. However, there is currently no public support for changing this," she said, adding that the Russian Federation has spread false narratives that undermine NATO's image.

"Russian propaganda is trying to prove that neutrality means that Moldova should not strengthen its security forces, which is absolute nonsense."

According to Sandu, the threat of a Russian attack on Moldova has lessened in part thanks to Ukraine's ongoing war effort.
