Chisinau has developed a seven-year reintegration plan for Transnistria. Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, spoke about this in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
At the same time, the Moldovan authorities have not yet made such official statements.
“Moldova has recently developed a document in which they propose steps towards the return of the unrecognized PMR to be stretched over 7 years. You have to decide this once, but when they translate it into a situation of a political process, that there are voters, this is a huge mistake,” Danilov said.
He also stressed that it is extremely important for Kyiv that the Republic of Moldova “ends the situation with Transnistria”.
“If we have territories on the common border where Russian soldiers are located, it is a matter of time before they start trying to destabilize something. In addition, there will be no investment and development,” Alexey Danilov concluded.
Recently the President of Moldova Maya Sandu admitted that Chisinau does not yet have a clear future plan for the unification of the country, and effective negotiations in this direction will be possible “after the victory of Ukraine.” At the same time, they say in Chisinau that “in the first place should be the demilitarization of Transnistria, including through the evacuation of Russian troops.”
In turn, Tiraspol emphasizes the immutability of the course towards international recognition of its independence and free accession to the Russian Federation, as determined by the 2006 referendum. Therefore, they are convinced that it is possible to ensure peace and security in the region only within the framework of the ongoing peacekeeping operation conducted by the Russian Federation, which has proved its success.
As reported EADaily the Kyiv authorities repeatedly tried to convince Chisinau to turn to them for help, so that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would help “liberate the left-bank region from separatists and the Russian presence.”
Currently, Ukraine is concentrating its armed forces in this direction under the pretext of a possible attack from Transnistria. At the same time, the Russian Ministry of Defense has repeatedly warned that Kyiv is preparing a provocation on the Transnistrian border to justify the invasion.
