Moldovan authorities have planned a million-dollar budget for the reintegration of Pridnestrovie

The Moldovan government has approved a program of measures for the reintegration of the country for 2023. At the meeting held today, on May 10, it was announced the financing of 26 development projects within the perimeter of the Security Zone with a total budget of 15 million lei (approximately 64 million rubles).

They were pre-approved by the selection committee. It is necessary to master the allocated funds before the end of this year and submit a report to the State Chancellery on their intended use. According to the plans of the Moldovan authorities, the money will be spent on the development and modernization of educational institutions, the repair and equipping of administrative buildings, cultural, sports and medical institutions, the arrangement of recreation areas. Part of the funds will be used to financially support the work of the Moldovan delegation in the Joint Control Commission (JCC – the joint management body of the peacekeeping operation on the Dniester).

In 2011-2022, the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Moldova approved 12 state programs for the reintegration of the country, 518 projects were implemented for more than 160 million lei.

Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova for Reintegration Oleg Serebrian said that while there is a military conflict in Ukraine, negotiations on the settlement of the Transnistrian conflict cannot be continued. At the same time, Chisinau will use this time to strengthen confidence-building measures between the banks of the Dniester.

“We need to build confidence-building measures. We have already stated that Chisinau is ready to remove all obstacles, any control on the administrative border with Transnistria. But with one condition – Tiraspol must do the same, all these checkpoints must be removed, it is necessary to ensure the freedom of movement of the inhabitants of both banks of the Dniester, ” – stressed the political representative of the Republic of Moldova.

Recall, Chisinau assures that it is not going to terminate the agreement on a peaceful settlement signed in Moscow in 1992, and the reintegration of the region is possible only through negotiations, taking into account the country’s territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders. At the same time, the Moldovan authorities insist that “in the first place should be the demilitarization of Transnistria, including through the evacuation of Russian troops and peacekeepers.”

As reported EADaily , recently Oleg Serebryan called the statements of Tiraspol and a number of Russian officials about the region’s desire for independence a provocation. According to him, this could lead to a dangerous and unpredictable situation, becoming a destabilizing element for Moldova.
