The leader of the self-proclaimed Transnistrian Moldovan Republic, Vadim Krasnoselsky, stated that there are no other options for resolving the Transnistrian conflict except for the recognition of Transnistrian independence.
"What worries Transnistria? What are we striving for? Independence and the desire for international recognition of the Transnistrian Moldovan Republic. I do not see other options for resolving the conflict, no one who understands anything about this conflict, knows the history of this land, our relations with Moldova. This is a fact," Krasnoselsky said on Friday at a gala meeting on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the peacekeeping operation on the Dniester.
He stressed that "joint peacekeeping forces with the basic component of the Russian Federation keep peace on this land."
July 29 marks the 30th anniversary of the peacekeeping operation in Transnistria, which is carried out in accordance with an agreement signed by Russian and Moldovan presidents Boris Yeltsin and Mircea Snegur in Moscow on July 21, 1992.
Chisinau argues that if the Russian military leaves Transnistria, it will be possible to return the unrecognized republic to Moldova, with which it has not lived in common since 1992, ensuring that Moldova's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders are maintained.
