Summary/Abstract: Neutrality in Moldova is treated by the state authorities as a strategy that could guarantee survival in the international environment. Despite being referred to even in the country’s constitution, Moldova’s neutrality is a state not recognized by the international community, which is mostly due to an inconsistent foreign policy. Under such circumstances, Moldova is torn between two strategies: the betterment of the relationship with Russia, or tightening the cooperation with the West. Both strategies are problematic, yet they seem more adequate than the strategy of inconsistent neutrality pursued thus far.
