(DEUTSCHE WELLE) Our journey begins in Blindesti, a little village on the Moldava-Romania border. People here live in grinding poverty. They used to work as migrant labor in Romania, but since Romania joined the EU, they have needed visas. In the special economic zone Ungheni,at least there are a few companies. But the pay is around 150 euros a month. Moldova’s capital, Chisinau, displays unmistakable traces of the Soviet past. The future is uncertain, and young people are leaving their country.
