This must indicate that the profile of Go is increasing in Romania. One of the candidates for the Presidential election lists it as his favourite game.

You can see at the end:
"Jocul preferat: GO" favourite game: Go
It seems he likes to talk about this recently. I hope he didn't read "The Protracted Game".

Less unexpectedly, presidents of South Korea are sometimes Go players:

Current president Moon Jae-in is a 4 dan, here he is playing Park Junghwan with Seo Beongsu watching.

Former president Roh Moo-hyun (2003-2008) was a 6 dan iirc.

The Romanian candidate has been playing go for more than 20 years:
