Summary/Abstract: Since the first days of independence in 1991, the political class in Moldova has chosen to tie the country’s foreign policy to a bifurcated East-West orientation. This is reflected in the state’s governance as leaders constantly search for quick fixes from the outside. Thus, this geopolitical oscillation has become a modern Moldovan political tradition with the foreign policy dichotomy as a sort of “trademark” used to quickly interpret, not always accurately, public perceptions or the conduct of the political parties by observers both at home and abroad.
