Poltoraka quotes press office The main military department of Ukraine:
We respect the territorial integrity of the Republic of Moldova and support the aspiration of the Moldovan people to withdraw the Russian military base from the territory of their country.
Moldavian portal reports that Poltorak promised to provide a "green corridor" for the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Transnistrian village of Kolbasna.
To this, Salaru said that the withdrawal "can be done" not only by land through Ukraine, but also by air - from the airfield of Merculesti, as well as from the sea - from the pier of Giurgiulesti.
Apparently, Mr. Poltorak and Mr. Salaru are not aware that recent public opinion polls in Moldova and the Pridnestrovskaia Moldavskaia Respublika showed the desire of ordinary citizens to leave the Russian peacekeeping contingent on the banks of the Dniester. It is the Russian peacekeepers who provide peace in Moldova, and it was they who stopped the civil war that was raging in Moldova.
Poltorak, meanwhile, would have cost more to take care of the territorial integrity of his country, in particular, by ordering the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from the line of contact in the Donbas, which is clearly spelled out in the Minsk agreements. Poltorak’s opinion on what Russian peacekeepers should do, he can keep with him.
