How American lobby-ists are taking over the whole relevant positions in Romania when it comes to resources. 21st century colonialism at its best.
“The U.S. ambassador to Romania at the time, Mark Gitenstein, is a former lobbyist for Chevron. He is a board member of Fondul Proprietatea, a joint stock company established by the Romanian state that holds shares in all major Romanian oil, gas and power generation companies. (New England Center for Investigative Reporting) Chevron’s drilling royalties and tax payments to Romania are less than half of what it pays in the U.S. Local Romanian communities get nothing but contaminated water. Corruption among Romanian officials is said to rival that of Saudi Arabia.” [CORRECT!!!]
