The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not see any risks of escalation of the situation in Transnistria and emphasizes that Moscow stands for a peaceful settlement of the conflict while respecting the territorial integrity of Moldova. This was announced on Monday by Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko, Interfax reports.
“We don’t see any risks. Our position remains the same: we stand for a peaceful settlement of the Transnistrian problem while respecting the territorial integrity of Moldova and the special status of this region in its composition,” he said.
Recall that on April 22, Deputy Commander of the Central Military District Rustam Minnekaev spoke about the tasks of the second stage of the “special operation” in Ukraine. He mentioned plans to establish control over the south of Ukraine and “get another outlet to Transnistria”, “where there are facts of oppression of the Russian-speaking population.” And the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin “does not comment on issues related to the conduct of the special operation.”
