Not the strongest teams possible, no Khaznaiuk, no Perper among others. Looks like Luxembourg should be one team to be promoted.

Re: 2019 Europe/Africa Zone Group II

Moldova withdrew again (2nd time in a row). Surely they will just be regelated to Group III now...

Julia Glushko is out. Big blow for Israel's chances, now they more likely have to fight to stay in Group II.
