Democrat MP Valentina Buliga is listed in the Impressum / Imprint register in Germany as a leader of a protests movement, "Ende Gelände" / "Enough, Stop it!" that is violently protesting against the coal extraction industry. The website of the organization Ende Gelande presents the politician Valentina Buliga, with the address in Chisinau, Gheorghe Tudor 3 str., National Social Insurance House. Valentina Buliga has been a Director of this institution from December 2018 to June 2019.

Ende Gelände was targeted by the German media after the 2015 demonstrations when a group of 1,500 people entered the territory of the Garzweiler mine, owned by RWE, based in Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia. 

According to the British publication theguardian.com, in 2017, over 3,000 activists, dressed in white paper vests and carrying straw bags as a means of protection against police sticks, seized another mine and a power plant in Welzow-Süd, Eastern Germany.

Activists strongly criticize the Berlin authorities because, despite statements about the exploration of green energy sources, they are continuing to invest in the extraction of "black energy", especially coal.

Contacted by the Center for Investigative Journalism, Valentina Buliga described the data of the German register "as someone’s bad deed". "God forbid! I have never been a protester except for the events organized by the faction [PDM] of which I am a member."

Valentina Buliga was elected in 2005 in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova. She served between 2009 and 2015 as Minister of Labor, Social Protection and Family in several governments. In 2014–2018, she obtained a new term of MP in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova.
