The UN adopted a resolution on the withdrawal of Russian peacekeepers from Transnistria. Dodon's statement
Moldovan President Igor Dodon commented on the resolution on Transnistria adopted by the UN General Assembly. This is a resolution, the draft of which was prepared by representatives of the Moldovan government. It concerns this draft appeal to Russia with the “demand for the unconditional and immediate withdrawal” of peacekeepers from Transnistria.
Igor Dodona in an interview RIA News notes that the initiative of the Moldovan government is aimed exclusively at exacerbating the situation, primarily in Moldova itself.
It is aimed at causing serious damage to the Moldovan-Russian relations.
According to the Moldavian president, such an initiative will only lead to a deterioration of Chisinau’s position on the settlement of Transnistrian issues.
The Moldovan Foreign Ministry stated the need for Russia to comply with the resolution and that Moscow "should not react nervously to the initiative." Such a statement was allowed by the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic Tudor Ulyanovsky. At the same time, Ulyanovsky called the conflict in Transnistria not an internal problem of Moldova, but “the intervention of a third state that stationed its troops on Moldovan territory”.
In fact, the UNGA resolution is one of those documents that does not imply any obligations. The project was discussed, consulted, the decision was made - and that was all. And instead of being concerned about the presence of peacekeepers on the banks of the Dniester, the Moldovan government would be much better concerned about consolidating Moldovan society and raising the standard of living of ordinary citizens - then any problems inside the country would resolve themselves.
