“The reintegration of the country and the reconstitution of the unique national spaces between the two banks of the Dniester is the primary objective of the negotiations on the Transnistrian settlement,” the Bureau for Reintegration states. The reaction was sent at the request of Realitatea, after the so-called Minister of Foreign Affairs from Tiraspol, Vitalii Ignatiev, said that Transnistria wants independence, then accession to the Russian Federation.
Officials refer to international law, pointing out that the results of the 2006 election, to which Ignatiev refers, can only be credible if international law is respected. According to them, the Republic of Moldova and international partners support the peaceful settlement of the conflict.
“The legality, veracity and credibility of the results of plebiscites can be ensured in compliance with the requirements of international law and national law in force, a period of transition through democratic values and the promotion of fundamental human rights, full freedom of expression, full exclusion of censorship information and the imposition of a monopoly of opinion. All international partners and constitutional authorities strongly support the formula for a peaceful and all-encompassing settlement of the Transnistrian conflict, while respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Moldova, within its internationally recognized borders. The reintegration of the country and the reconstitution of the unique national spaces between the two banks of the Dniester is the primary objective of the negotiations on the Transnistrian settlement ”, it is shown in the message sent by the Bureau.

On Wednesday, the so-called Transnistrian diplomacy published an interview with the head of the institution, Vitalii Ignatiev, given to Sputnik Moldova, whose website was previously blocked by the Intelligence and Security Service. The separatist official spoke openly about Tiraspol’s intention to make the region part of the Russian Federation, because the visions of the self-proclaimed administration are different from those of Chisinau.
Transnistrians seem to be trying to put Chisinau in front of the choice between “peaceful divorce”, as Ignatiev calls it, or new tensions in the region. Earlier, in interviews with the press close to the Kremlin, he stated several times about the separatist region’s intention to achieve independence, but hesitated to speak directly about the possible official entry of the area into Russia.
