Part 2

Vitaly Viktorovich, will the approaches of the Pridnestrovian side in the negotiation process on the settlement of Moldova-Pridnestrovie relations change in connection with the appointment of new political representative?



 I part

Vitaly Viktorovich, you have been appointed to a new position most recently, but you have been engaging in the negotiations for a long time. How would you describe the current relations between Tiraspol and Kishinev? In what state are they today?



The Foreign Ministry held the first media briefing of acting Foreign Minister of the PMR Vitaly Ignatiev as a Political Representative of Pridnestrovie in the negotiation process.

The journalists were interested in the current situation in the relations with the Republic of Moldova, as well as the characteristics of the current stage of the negotiations in the “1+1” format. During the interview Vitaly Ignatiev also told about the priority areas of work of the Foreign Ministry, including in the negotiation process.



Since August 24, 2015 the Republic of Moldova banned the movement of the Pridnestrovian transport across the border between Ukraine and Moldova by the Order of the Head of the Border Police Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Advisor to the Chairperson of the Government of the PMR, Head of the expert group on the development of transport and road facilities Vladimir Trandasir spoke on the current situation in that sphere to the correspondent of the IA “Novosti Pridnestrovya”.



If you don’t hold your military actions, tomorrow I will have breakfast in Tiraspol, lunch in Chisinau and dinner in Bucharest – with those words general Lebied stopped Moldovan army in 1992 and de facto created a new country on the European map: Pridniestrovian Moldavian Republic, which officialy keeps close relationship with Russia and remains in their influence until today. Lebied threat was so powerful that resulted in ceasefire right on the next day. Situation has not changed over the last 20 years.
