Moldovan Prime Minister Gavrilitsa called for the withdrawal of Russian military from Transnistria
Moldova, with the help of the UN platform, called for the withdrawal of the Russian military from the territory of Transnistria, as it wants to find a peaceful solution to the conflict. This was stated by the Prime Minister of the Republic Natalia Gavrilitsa, RIA Novosti reports her words.
Gavrilitsa said that Moldova is using the UN platform to ask for the withdrawal of the Russian military “from the Transnistrian territory of Moldova and draw attention to the human rights violations in the region, which are controlled by the unrecognized regime.” She noted that the presence of these topics in UN resolutions keeps the problem of the Transnistrian conflict on the agenda of the world community, and also stressed the need for a peaceful solution to the conflict.
It is known that in June 2018 the UN General Assembly called on Russia to withdraw troops from Pridnestrovie, the resolution was supported by 64 states, 14 opposed, and 83 more countries abstained.
Earlier, PMR President Vadim Krasnoselsky said that international recognition of the self-proclaimed Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic should be carried out democratically, without military action and the loss of citizens’ lives. The politician rejected the idea that war is an acceptable way to change the status of an unrecognized power.
