Moldova may repeat Georgia’s fate

Russia's ambassador to Moldova has warned the country's leaders to avoid a "bloody and catastrophic trend of events" in a separatist Moldovan region.

The Trans-Dniester region broke away from the former Soviet republic of Moldova in 1990. It is supported by Russia but is not recognized internationally. Russia has 1,500 troops stationed there to guard weapons facilities.

Ambassador Valeri Kuzmin said late Tuesday that Moldova should draw its own conclusions over the events in Georgia. Russia recognized the independence of two Georgian breakaway regions.

Kuzmin acknowledged that the situation in Trans-Dniester is different from the Caucasus.

But he said Moldova should show wisdom in dealing with Trans-Dniester and refrain from escalating the conflict.
