Russia rejects the merger of Moldova with Romania

Prensa Latina

If Moldova loses its sovereignty or neutrality, the Russian Federation has the right to propose the right of self-determination for Transdniester the messenger of Moscow for special missions, Sergei Gubarev, informed on Sunday.

The expert said that the Kremlin does not rule out recognizing the independence of the breakaway republic located within Moldovan territory.

It was repeated that Russian authorities have expressed their rejection of the merger of Moldova with neighboring Romania and their possible annexation to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Gubarev insisted on the need to negotiate an exit to reach an agreement suitable to both parties, according to the radio station Echo Moscow. Building a future of coexistence with Tiraspol and Kishinev, capitals where the solution to the problem is, should be the goal of the talks, he insisted emphatically.

The transformation of the Soviet Union and the fear of annexation of Moldova to Romania in the early 1990's caused the creation of five districts on the left bank of the Dniester, with a mostly Russian population, proclaimed as the self-styled Republic of Transdniéster, with Tiraspol as its capital.

In retaliation, Kishinev sent forces against the separatist territory that led to a war that lasted several months.

Peace was achieved by a mediated integrated mixed contingent of 402 Russian military, 355 Moldovans and 492 from Transdniéster, as well as a dozen Ukrainian observers.

A negotiating process was initiated on the basis of the formula called "five plus two" - Moldova, Transdniestria, Russia, Ukraine, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), besides the United States and the European Union.

These agreements were interrupted from 2006 to 2011, although the parties continued performing periodic consultations until November 30, 2011 and Moldova and Transdniéster restored the practices.

Upon reaching the presidency of Transdniester at the end of that year, Yevgeny Shevchuk reaffirmed the foreign policy of his administration and will seek to recognize and maintain a relationship with his Russian partners.

"We will also be open for neighborly relations with Moldova and Ukraine," expressed the representative of the Republic.
