Moldova fears Russia's wrath

The annexation of Crimea has caused concern that Russia could impose additional bans on the eastern European country.

    The annexation of Crimea has raised fears of similar moves in other Russian-speaking regions, such as Moldova.

    Moldova’s prime minister this week appealed to Western leaders and Russia to prevent his country from falling apart.

    The Russian speaking area of Transnistria, has already broken away from Moldova.

    The vineyards of Moldova were Russia's first target when the country started integrating with West Europe.

    Last September, Russia banned the wine, a huge export business for Moldova.

    It is the same tactic used by the Kremlin on Ukraine when it banned the country’s lucrative chocolate trade to Russia.
