The film contends that, during the floods on the Prut river earlier this year, the AIE government broke dikes protecting Moldovan villages as part of a secret agreement with the Romanian government to protect the major Romanian city of Galati further downstream.
Zimbru got interested and opened up Google Earth to have a closer look. Zimbru noticed the following:
- at the point where the Prut flows into the Danube at Giurgiulesti, the water level is 3m above sea level
- the level of the Danube at the western end of Galati is about 5m above sea level
- with the exception of a small industrial area to the east of Galati, most of the city sits on a terrace at elevations of 25m to 50m
- across the river from Galati, around the village of I C Bratianu, sits a broad flood plain which has elevations even lower than the river itself, protected by an earth dam.
Mr Petkov and all his communist friends bad-mouthing the AIE are a bunch of liars. Stupid ones at that. Someone should explain to them (and the poor countryfolk they are lying to) that water doesn't flow uphill.
