Russian Deputy Foreign Minister: Russia is not interested in Transnistria as a military beachhead

Russia is not interested in Transnistria as in the territory to accommodate its armed forces, the peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation only saves the region from bloodshed. About this in an interview with the newspaper "Kommersant" said the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Grigory Karasin.

"Our military did not come here. During the collapse of the USSR, the Soviet armed forces were here, whose presence saved the region from bloodshed. And it continues to save. The main thing is that the people of Transnistria believe the Russian military and consider their presence here as an important condition for a quiet and comfortable life. Brought From the outside, theoretical studies on the fact that Russia wants to have its own outpost here are artificial. We have no interest in this. We want the Transnistrian problem to be resolved thinly, "said Karasin.

In 1992, during the conflict between the self-proclaimed Transnistrian Moldavian Republic (PMR) and Moldova, the latter's troops broke into Bender. During the fighting, soldiers of the 14th Army were killed, as volunteers who fought for the independence of Transnistria. They managed to repulse the attack of the Moldovan army and police after the Russians entered the battle Tanks and air defense systems. The operation was led by General Alexander Lebed. Almost a month after the fighting in Bendery in Moscow, an agreement was signed that actually froze the conflict and allowed Russian peacekeepers to enter the battle zone.

      It is because of this that we keep Transnistria to ourselves! If we give, we do not have time to look back. how there NATOVtsy entrench themselves and put radars with interceptors!
      I remember one of our supreme clown (a fan of advertising pizza on the background of the Kremlin); from them even an honest promise took not to get closer to our borders!
      He is such a naive PENDANT, I'll pay now, by golly! crying

          Not Moldovan, but Romanian, since they have Romanian citizenship, and not tilers unfinished, but first of all farmers and winemakers, and the bastards sent us us by the bastards, the pro-Romanians until the 1990s, the Moldavians did not know what construction work was, kindly not to call gypsies Moldova, in Moldova almost 80% for Russia, even Ukraine still boasts a percentage, and they call Russians like you M.O.S.K.A.L.Ya.M.I, I put a minus on your momentum because I don’t wrote

            Alexander, I’m not ready to polemize with you about the citizenship of your authorities, but my friend participated in the events in Transnistria, told me so many nightmares, moreover, this is an adult who has gone through many hot spots and I believe him.

              Alexey, you don’t need to apologize because you didn’t write anything offensive, our grandfathers fought shoulder to shoulder against these Romanian creatures, and now they put us on different sides of the barricade. In Moldova, according to the popularity of politicians, they are at 1.PUTIN2ROGOZIN, and not the top of ROMANIA, and when ROGOZIN was in Pridnestrovie and MOLDOVA, none of Moldova howled and didn’t grit his teeth, but in the quiet (for now) they are glad that RUSSIA will not give up and will not leave us. Without RUSSIA, we are turning into an empty place, which is proved by the time from 1991 to today day

            Not the Romanians and Moldovans, but the Romanians and the corrupt power of Moldova, you stuck us to the Romanians again. Moldavians have NEVER betrayed RUSSIA, I WILL NEVER REPEAT, WE WERE ALWAYS FOR RUSSIA, THERE ARE AND WILL BE. Although a passport to the wish so far Moldavian.

            you, dear dreamer, since you do not understand the difference between Romanians and Moldovans, as well as between ordinary people and the authorities, you would keep quiet, you might pass for a smart one ... here are such illiterate scribblers who write without understanding the difference between Moldovans and Gypsies, Romania and the North Pole, and all this interethnic fuss is calculated, which was started by the authorities of different, formerly friendly republics ... I am Russian, but I live in Moldova ... and for some reason "I don't go to the city" and I can't sleep with a trowel in my arms ...

      Independence - half measure! Conservation problems. And few recognize her. Joining temporarily lost territory and point. Anyway, in case of independence, we should finance the territory.

        Well, Abkhazia and South Ossetia are already in such a situation, Russia is satisfied with this situation, Georgia has all gone to ... but, they can’t do anything, which means everything was done correctly.

        And then we will get tired of fighting off any international lawsuits and will appear before the whole world as "occupiers", which we do not need in any case and what they really want in the West wink

    Transnistria should be considered by Russia as the most important MILITARY outpost and not otherwise. The Foreign Ministry is maneuvering, this is understandable, but the troops there must be and be in sufficient numbers and not for "peacekeeping functions", but to repel ANY EXTERNAL aggression that threatens territorially, economically, morally, finally, the borders of Russia.

    I’ll say the most seditious thing ...
    I don’t know for sure whether the Russian Federation is really interested in the PMR as a military bridgehead or not on the contrary ... As the distinguished gentleman from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs says ... Although, in my opinion, this diplomat is cunning. However, he has such a job - how to fool and deceive the public with more honest little eyes. Both its own and global in general. And the last one in the first place ... However, what am I talking about? .. Ah, yes! ..
    So, I don’t know the right whether Russia is interested in Transnistria as a military bridgehead or not, but for example Ukraine has long and closely considered the PMR as a zone of its interests ... I’m not talking about Moldova and Romania. This is a matter of course ... But at the same time, I must say, Kiev does this very quietly and accurately. Technically, it’s so ... Moreover, regardless of who was the head of Ukraine, whether it was the Kravchuk shifter, or the amorphous Kuchma, or the irreconcilable orange Yushchenko, or the current crap sucker Yanukovych ... It will be the same with the next head of Ukraine. Even if it becomes (and why not? !!) Mrs. Tymoshenko ...
    So our closest neighbors also have their own interests (which, in general, is quite normal and correct), and in a large family, as it is known, "bastard nine scoop-scribe !!!" ...

    I myself am a resident of Pridnestrovie (I don’t know why the flag of Moldova is displayed and not the PMR) and I know that if the Russian army of peacekeepers leaves, we will repeat the events of 2008 only on our territory. Thanks guys!!!!!! Well, the results of the referendum held in our country speak for themselves, more than 95% are in favor of being with RUSSIA (or, in extreme cases, recognition of independence) WE remember how in 1992 the Moldovan OPON shot us just because we wanted to speak our native language In Russian. In Pridnestrovie there are a lot of different nationalities living in the world and our Moldovans have their own state language, Moldavian, and one for all "Romanian" which is imposed on us by newly-made ROMANIANS (who have always been Moldovans) from the corrupt government of MOLDOVA, we do not need, "NOT CITIZENS" as we do not want to be in the Baltic States in our homeland.

      In this world, money decides everything. As long as Russian banks work with banks of the Transnistrian Republic (by the way, semi-legally with the "permission" of the Central Bank of Russia), everything will be more or less normal. And the work is getting harder and harder ..... And then someone wanted to transfer financial flows to, say, Romania. It will get even hotter over time ... or it is already getting, and Rogozin seems to be a small fire extinguisher. IMHO.
