Moldova does not want to see Russian troops in Transnistria

Chisinau from the OSCE rostrum called on Moscow to withdraw troops from Transnistria. The head of the Moldovan diplomatic department, Nicu Popescu, addressed Russia with such a demand.

According to the minister, Russian units are in Transnistria illegally and should be withdrawn.

We strongly call for the complete and unconditional withdrawal of the Russian military from the territory of the Republic of Moldova, in accordance with the commitments made by the Russian Federation in 1999 at the OSCE summit in Istanbul

- said the diplomat.

Nicu Popescu also reminded that there are still ammunition depots in the Transnistrian village of Cobasna after the withdrawal of the 14th Army of the Russian Federation in the 1990s.

Meanwhile, since 2002, the Russian side has consistently denied any clear commitment to withdraw troops from the unrecognized state.

In 2018, the UN adopted a resolution calling on Moscow to withdraw combat units from the territory of Transnistria. The Kremlin said that it was propaganda in nature and would not be executed.

Former Moldovan President Igor Dodon actively opposed the withdrawal of Russian troops from the region. Currently, both chambers of the Moldovan Parliament are demanding that the Russian Federation comply with the United Nations resolution.

    The resolution is non-constructive and cannot be implemented.

    M. Sandu continues to pull the tiger's whiskers. Still, it will return in the form of gas and electricity prices. It's been 32 years now. Quiet peacefully. Pridnestrovie does not ask Moldova for money, it is not necessary to feed them. They live themselves. All these preferences from the EU for trade, Pridnestrovie, if independent, would have received it, but no, it would have traded with the EAEU, there is something. And they are ready to pay for gas themselves (there is no direct agreement, unrecognized ones). Smart people (RM) would arrange everything for the benefit of Moldova through calm and businesslike relations with the PMR. These are gas and electricity and the EAEU market. But no - a blockade, strangulation, a demand for complete subordination at the level of an ordinary district.

    Thirty-one years of independence of Moldova. At the helm exclusively and only representatives of the titular nationality (there are no Russians even among the building managers). Ruin! Complete! The picture of decline is blurred only at the expense of guest workers' money. Well, they are not capable of governing the state and that's all. Romanians are also by the way, the German Klaus Johannis rules there. Look at Transnistria, where people are not sorted by nationality. Everything is much better. Even in those blockade conditions for the economy.
    It will never be in Moldova as in Europe. There are no state-forming traditions, only nepotism and theft. Let smart people into power (even if they are not Moldovans). Feel the difference. It will be much better
