Minister of Foreign Affairs Nicu Popescu, Deputy Dan Perciun, and Reintegration Premier Oleg Serebrian have responded to the fact that 2,500 history textbooks for ninth-grade students have reached the Transnistrian region from the Russian Federation. In these textbooks, students in the separatist region will learn about the “reunification of Crimea with Russia,” the “terrorism of Ukrainian neo-Nazis,” and “Kyiv’s preparation for an attack on Russia.”
In turn, Deputy Dan Perciun mentioned during the press conference that the 2,500 textbooks likely reached the Transnistrian region through diplomatic mail, and they expect a strong reaction from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration.
When contacted by newsmaker.md, Reintegration Premier Oleg Serebrian stated that the batch of textbooks did not pass through the checkpoints of the Republic of Moldova, but he is unaware of the other channels through which they reached the Transnistrian region.
It should be noted that Russia has sent 2,500 history textbooks to the Transnistrian region in which events in the modern history of the Russian Federation, including the military aggression against Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea, are presented in a distorted manner, similar to Russian propaganda.
