HOW AMERICAN LOBBYISTS ARE TAKING OVER

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.

Corruption among Romanian officials is said to rival that of Saudi Arabia.” [CORRECT!!!]
