Chisinau asks to cancel the blockade, Kiev does not agree
September 1 came, and Ukraine changed its mind to lift the transport blockade of Transnistria, banning vehicles with Transnistrian numbers from entering its territory. Only cars with so-called neutral numbers and a sticker are allowed through the border. MD on the glass.
We will remind, on August 28, Odessa customs announced that it was decided to postpone the blockade until January 10, 2022. However, the very next day she denied her own message.
“Information about the postponement of the ban on the admission to participation in the international movement of vehicles from the Transnistrian region of Moldova, which do not have neutral numbers, was posted by mistake,”
– stated on the official page of the Odessa customs in the social network Facebook…
Ukraine imposed the blockade despite an official request from the Moldovan Foreign Ministry to postpone the blockade until next year.
This request is related to the promise of the President of Moldova, Maia Sandu, not to impose a transport blockade, which she gave to the head of the presidential administration of the Russian Federation. Dmitry Kozak…
“The President of Moldova assured me that there will be no blockade. And they are doing everything so that it does not come from September 1, when certain restrictions come into force. Proceeding from the fact that Moldovan citizens live in Transnistria ”,
– said Dmitry Kozak after meeting with Maya Sandu 11th August.
However, Maia Sandu could not help but assure that in the autumn Chisinau will have to conclude a new agreement with Gazprom, Moldova is completely dependent on Russian gas supplies. And the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Moldova, with its appeal to Kiev, helped the Moldovan authorities to “save face”.
“The problem with Transnistrian numbers is a typical Moldovan wiring. In fact, Sandu and Zelenskiy were playing Russia.
The Moldovan Foreign Ministry allegedly asked Ukraine to solve the problem, showing Moscow that Chisinau is complying with the agreements with D. Kozak. And Ukraine allegedly refuses. Moldova, they say, wanted, but Ukraine is against it, do you understand, Dmitry Nikolaevich?
We are sure that everyone in Russia can see and understand everything. And the games of provincial thimblers are visible a mile away, ”
– no doubt the Moldovan political scientist, MP from the Party of Socialists Bogdan Tsyrdya…
The Transnistrian Foreign Ministry called Kiev’s actions destructive and violating the principles of the international negotiation process between Tiraspol and Chisinau. These actions will certainly affect the state of the Moldovan-Pridnestrovian dialogue.
“We call on all participants in the negotiation process to assess actions that run counter to the principles and content of existing agreements, and to prevent a full-scale transport blockade of Transnistria,”
– said in the statement of the PMR Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
In the opinion of the President of the Pridnestrovskaia Moldavskaia Respublika Vadim Krasnoselsky, he sees the only way out of this situation in restarting the negotiation process with Chisinau. As for Ukraine, its decision “surprised the head of the PMR”, since Kiev is a mediator in the “5 + 2” negotiation format. The only explanation for all that is happening, he considers the fears of the Ukrainian side about the fact that Tiraspol and Chisinau will begin to agree.
Krasnoselsky recalled that 80 thousand Ukrainian citizens living on the territory of the PMR will also suffer from the actions of Ukraine.
But when did the Kiev authorities stop the suffering of their citizens?
In Moldova, they expect a response from Transnistria.
“The most painful ban will hit small businesses, people who are used to going to Odessa for goods. This will definitely be regarded as a transport blockade. And there may be retaliatory actions: Transnistria may stop letting Moldovan cars through its territory, ”
