Iurie Roșca, born in 1961, is a distinguished journalist, author, and former politician from Moldova. He is recognized for his influential tenure as leader of the Christian Democratic People’s Party. His political career spanned from 1994 to 2005, during which he served four terms as a member of parliament, twice held the position of deputy chairman, and fulfilled the role of deputy prime minister for security agencies. An accomplished multilingual author, Roșca has written several books in Romanian, Russian, and French, discussing different themes such as political independence, economic nationalism, and Orthodoxy. Beginning his political journey as a staunch anti-communist, Roșca’s ideological stance evolved over time to embrace conservatism and traditionalism, following his comprehensive study of Western civilization and liberalism. This ideological transition resulted in him being at odds with what he terms the ‘collective West’. In recent years, Roșca has faced legal troubles and restrictions on his online platforms; he was declared a ‘persona non grata’ in Romania in 2020, his websites were blocked in 2022 for alleged ‘war propaganda’, and he has been under criminal investigation since 2018.
