  A Moldavian politician: Moldova will either be Russian, or it will not be at all

2010 05 25

The joint statement of the Presidents of Russia and the Ukraine Dmitrij Medvedev and Viktor Janukovich concerning the Transnistria regulation delivers actually ultimatum to Moldova and is “the beginning of the new military-political expansion of Russia into the post-soviet area”. Such opinion was expressed at the press-conference on 19 May in Chisinau by Sergey Mokanu, the Chairman of the movement “National Actions”, ex-adviser to the President of Moldova Vladimir Voronin, reported the IA REGNUM Novosti correspondent.

According to the opinion of the politician, the document signed by the Russian and the Ukrainian leaders means that Moldova may exist as an independent state only within the sphere of Russian interests. “In other words, this means that Moldova will either be Russian, or it will not exist at all. That is a clear disregard for the citizens of Moldova, and decisions taken on the grounds of such dialogue will definitely be uncongenial to our European objectives”, noted Mokanu.

As reported by IA REGNUM Novosti, on 17 May the Presidents of Russia and Ukraine signed in Kiev a joint statement concerning the regulation of Transnistria issues, where they expressed their opinion concerning the status of Transnistria observing the “territorial integrity” of Moldova. Moreover, heads of the states confirmed in the statement their adherence to the agreed undertakings in the previous process of negotiations stressing the stabilising role of the current peacemaking operation in Transnistria, and expressed their intentions to support the resumption of negotiations in the format of “5+2”. The Prime Minister of Moldova Vladimir Filat noted announcing the official position of the government concerning the Russian-Ukranian statement that the official Chisinau welcomes active participation of international partners in the regulation of Transnistria issues, however, is in favour of reorganising the acting peacemaking operation in Transnistria into the international mission and full withdrawal of Russian military troops from the region.
