There will be sanctions: Grosu to Tiraspol about the situation with “MIR” cards

Chisinau may impose sanctions against Tiraspol if authorities discover that “organized criminal groups” are using the banking system in Transnistria. Parliament speaker Igor Grosu told Jurnal TV.

“You cannot joke with the banking system. If you will provide funding to an aggressor state to subvert Moldova or any other state, sanctions will be appropriate,” Igor Grosu said.

In discussing the Russian bank card “MIR,” officials stated that it could be used in Transnistria, allowing budgetary employees from Gagauzia to receive 2 thousand lei increments to their pensions and salaries.


Earlier, was informed by the Transnistrian Sberbank that residents of Gagauzia could withdraw money from the Russian “MIR” card in Transnistria.

Thus, the bank reported that even foreign citizens can withdraw money from any bank branch on the territory of Transnistria. For this purpose, it is necessary to present a migration card and a passport.
