Who will get Transnistria?

58
Who will get Transnistria? Recently, in the Ukrainian and Western media more and more often began to appear information that Transnistria could become part of the Ukrainian state. The first such rumors appeared in April 2010, in Kiev, but they were perceived rather as a provocation. Then O. Bilous, one of the representatives of the BYuT party, stated that there was some kind of secret agreement between Moscow and V. Yanukovych, according to which Transdniestria is moving away to Ukraine. Moreover, it is not clear why Moldova, having lost the unrecognized republic, itself had to fall under the control of the Kremlin.


Later, however, other statements appeared. So, in particular, according to the Romanian President Traian Basescu, Moldova can become part of Romania, but only if the entire population living on the banks of the Prut (that is, the rivers connecting the two states) want to unite within the European Union. . At the same time, the border itself will pass along the Dniester. From these words, many have come to the conclusion that Bucharest agrees to sacrifice Transnistria in order to swallow Chisinau.

And soon, in March of 2011, a very interesting telegram appeared in one of the Romanian newspapers, which was previously published on the notorious Wikileaks. According to journalists, it was sent from the American Embassy in Ukraine to Washington. It dealt with the fact that the Moldovan political elite, adhering to the course of European integration, informally supported Moldova’s accession to the European Union with the help of Romania, joining the right bank of the Dniester and returning the left (that is, Transdniestria) to Ukraine.

In addition, Igor Smirnov, President of Transnistria, recalled that as early as the beginning of the 1990s, the republic’s government had already appealed to the Ukrainian authorities to become part of Ukraine as an autonomy. According to the politician, the desire to join Ukraine exists at the present time.

Of course, at first glance, all this may seem unreal and even fantastic. However, it is worth carefully analyzing all the factors that may contribute to the implementation of such a scenario, while not losing the motives of all interested parties. And first of all it is necessary to start from Tiraspol itself.

First, it is very difficult to believe that Igor Smirnov, who for two decades led the republic, calmly agree to join Transdniestria to Ukraine. The reason for all the statements of the politician is much more prosaic - the pressure of Russia.

Shortly before the next presidential elections were to be held in Transnistria, Moscow decided to support rival Anatoly Kaminsky, Smirnov, who is related to the Sheriff holding. Against Smirnov, Moscow led a powerful PR campaign. In order to even more “dampen” his reputation, the Kremlin decided that it was necessary to call and interrogate Oleg's Smirnov’s son on suspicion of embezzling 160 million rubles, which Moscow allocated for the calculation of pension allowances to residents of the republic.

At the same time, Smirnov’s positions still remain fairly strong, so Kaminsky repeatedly had to, and more than once, will have to justify himself that he does not intend to give up an independent republic of Moldova. By the way, this is not the first time the authorities have used this technique. So, we recall, in the 2006 year, when presidential elections took place in the country, the government accused its opponents of intending to join Transdniestria to Moldova ...

But, by and large, there is no point in analyzing all the behind-the-scenes intrigues that occur in Tiraspol. It suffices only to note that, despite all the differences, the Smirnov government for years already 20 somehow gets along with the holding "Sheriff", which can not be legalized. By the way, Sheriff is a leading company that controls a lot in the country, including petroleum products, mobile communications, television and even brandy factories. It is possible that despite the profitability, the holding's business is very vulnerable and it needs more weighty guarantees. But even if integration with Moldova does not work out, maybe something similar can be “cranked up” with Ukraine?

If we talk about V. Yanukovych and his environment, then their motives are very serious. First of all, it should be noted that the Ukrainian head of state has not yet stopped his wars with Maidan. Therefore, the accession to Ukraine of Transnistria is, first of all, a powerful trump card against the opposition: the Romanians received the shelf near Snake Island thanks to the democrats almost as a gift. By contrast, the Regionals will bring a whole autonomy into the country ...

In addition, analysts and political scientists believe that with the accession of the republic in Ukraine there will be another very large region with a population of about 520 thousand people, which will be a good support for the pro-presidential forces. And if we take into account the fact that the population of Transdniestria actually treats adoration towards Russia, then it is not necessary to think long and long about how it will relate to Banderovites.

There is another compelling motive - this is the great desire of the Ukrainian government to take over the industry of the Transnistrian republic, but Russia is unlikely to allow such a development of events ...

As for the Kremlin, the motives are much more interesting. On the one hand, it is not entirely clear why Moscow needs this, because there is no benefit from the republic. On the contrary, the support of Tiraspol is a very expensive business. Judge for yourselves: Transnistria’s natural gas debt reached only 2011 billion dollars in 2,8 a year, it increased another 2012 million in 300 (by the way, this is 10 million more than export volume of Tiraspol in six months). If we add to this sum the maintenance of the Russian operational group of troops, it turns out that for a year the maintenance of Transnistria costs about one billion dollars in Moscow ...

And with such expenses almost no political advantage. After all, when Romania began to deploy American missile defense missiles on its territory, it became obvious that the Kremlin had no leverage against it. In this case, rather, Moldova can turn into a good trump card of Russia in bargaining with Romania, because consent to give Chisinau could be a bait for which Bucharest will bite and will want to reconsider its political priorities. At the same time, it is important to note that Romania’s absorption of Moldova will not turn it into a powerful state. Just the NATO border will move another one and a half hundred kilometers to the east. In addition, Transnistria may be left out, which the Russian government cannot afford. At the same time, the unrecognized republic cannot join Russia either, because there are no common borders between the countries.

But not everything is so hopeless. There is another option in which the Kremlin can win a lot. And if it is correct to “play the cards”, then Transnistria will not only later return to the control of Russia, but also bring with itself Ukraine. Together with the new autonomy, the Ukrainian state will receive not only good support, but also several hundred thousand people with Russian citizenship. And in conditions when the Ukrainian economy is experiencing not its best times, and the international isolation of the state is only increasing, a situation may arise that there simply will be no other options than the Customs Union. In turn, the Kremlin will no longer want to accept Ukraine, but will require certain political and economic concessions.

The Kremlin could also try to bet on an independent Moldova, because besides certain diplomatic guarantees, Moscow would agree to the transfer of the Transnistrian Republic to Chisinau. This, in turn, would be a powerful brake on the unification of Moldova and Romania. At the same time, we should not forget that in the world there already existed a similar experience in the Baltic States, where the share of the Russian-speaking population is huge, but all these people are unable to resist the anti-Russian policy pursued by the authorities.

Ukraine, which already has an autonomous republic of Crimea in its structure, is trying in every way to isolate itself from attempts to drag it into the Transnistrian conflict, because the inviolability of borders was a priority for all presidents. Kiev pursued a very cautious policy regarding the republic, remembering that 150 lives in the thousands of Ukrainian population, but at the same time it never forgot that Transdniestria is in fact part of Moldova.

Now, with his government, Yanukovych can climb where he has no chance. And if all the statements that appear and appear in the press prove to be true, Ukraine’s role may be different: either Yanukovych, being in complete international isolation, will simply be forced to play according to someone else’s rules, or Ukraine will become a pawn in foreign geopolitical games because of stupidity.

      Transnistria cannot be given to anyone, in the future this territory of Russia. At one time there was a referendum on joining Russia, but for some reason our authorities refused? !!! as was the case with South Ossetia, Abkhazia. Countries themselves ask for membership, and the authorities refuse - the absurdity is utterly absurd (((Transnistria we need as a deterrent from the deployment of missile defense in Romania by NATO forces. Transnistria has repeatedly proposed Russia to deploy ISKANDER complexes to neutralize Romania. Moldova should also not be allowed to join Romania , then it will not be possible to merge it into Russia .. In general, I think that in the future Russia will be revived in full force and reunited with the former republics of the USSR, possibly Poland will join Poland with Finland, like the former provinces of Russia.

            and one of the most important tasks of Russia, in addition to developing its own economy, is the construction of the Eurasian Union. And this project is already at the finish line, if Yanukovych does not back down, then Ukraine’s accession to the CU will become the actual alignment of the EU within the borders of the USSR.
            And since Ukraine will cease to be a buffer for Transnistria, there will be no problems with joining Russia. The Russian Federation has experience in the Kaliningrad region, which is separated from Russia by other states.

      I apologize, but all my acquaintances Ukrainians consider Yanukovych to be BYDLOM, and comparing him with Lukashenko is a little incorrect. Yanukovych craps, craps quietly without advertising too much. I personally believe that Transnistria should become part of Ukraine on the basis of autonomy like Crimea. The war in Transnistria showed the unity of the Slavs when Russian Cossacks and Ukrainian nationalists sat in one trench. That would exchange Transnistria to the Crimea ...........

          If the Ukrainians brothers want to build their own state, then let them build, there is nothing wrong with that. And Ukraine has about the same rights to Transnistria as the Russian Federation to the Crimea.

    Transnistria is a pro-Russian enclave. The authorities in Ukraine, both with and under Yanukovych, are Russophobic. When the power in Kiev really changes and REAL integration with Moscow takes place, then Transnistria, for purely geographical reasons, will be the Russian Ukraine.

      This land generally has no historical relation to Moldova at all - it is Ukrainian land since it has been inhabited by Ukrainians since ancient times, it is even possible Russian land since these territories were conquered by Russia in long and stubborn conflicts with Turkey !!!

Enough to share what was once common, what was the land of our ancestors, and I'm not talking about the USSR, but about much earlier.

        Yes, what sources are there - there is enough knowledge of history at the high school level !!! Take any decent history textbook and see what kind of territory the Russian Empire joined to itself at the beginning of the 19th century ... These annexed lands were called Moldova and Bessarabia - and so the territory of Moldova seems to be there, but Transnistria is absent !!!

        Transnistria is part of Stalin’s global project to rebuild the USSR within the borders of the Russian Empire - I personally do not blame him for this at all - everyone did the right thing and did exactly the same as all the world powers of those years ...

        Who knows the history well - remembers that until the mid-50s there was the Karelian-Finnish SSR, that is, one republic was more in the composition of the union ... And then they disappeared somewhere - that is, for some reason they were "lowered" in status .. And then the word “Finnish” was removed from the name and it was simply the Karelian SSR ... There is only one conclusion - it was the same project to join Finland to the USSR as Transnistria in relation to Moldova ... But Finland didn’t succeed with Moldova it turned out - here they are in joy and "gave" the Transnistrian lands ...

    Moscow's foreign policy was very clearly visible during the 2011 Transnistrian Presidential elections. When the iPhone surrendered everyone and everything, including the pro-Russian President Smirnov. As a result, we have a president whose rating after 1,5 years should strive for 0. But Russia’s foreign policy is based on words — we are with Russia, and on deeds — surrendering Russia's positions in the negotiation process, tightening the screws on Russian enterprises, spending European days instead of Slavic culture days .
    The tactics of taking small steps in relations with Moldova led to the unilateral surrender of their positions at the beginning of the reign (drain of the PMR economy agents base to Moldova) and a sharp aggravation in the future (situation around the border checkpoint, ongoing economic blockade).
    The worst case scenario is the development of the situation on the Dniester, which will untie Moldova’s hands for a violent solution to the conflict, as follows:
    1) further discrediting the PMR as a legal and democratic state (violation of the Constitution, non-compliance with the Laws, attack / blocking of information resources not controlled by the current government; pressure on the legislative branch, NGOs;
    2) economic destabilization of the PMR (lack of budget, pressure on entrepreneurs, falling living standards);
    3) migration collapse (in 1.5 years, the mass of the population (20-35 thousand people) left the PMR), primarily of the able-bodied and economically active);
    4) artificial aggravation of the situation at the border, including in the area of ​​Bender.

    PS There is still hope for a change in Russia's policy regarding Transdniestria

    Hmm, Moldova was unlucky with its pro-European authorities. If Transnistria and Gagauzia could be for Russia, they could save themselves in the end.

    Where and what historical lands, to whom and when belonged, who and why has rights - a topic for conversation in the kitchen. After the collapse of the USSR, it was specifically agreed that states remain within those borders that were at the time of signing the agreement on the termination of the USSR. Simply, some politicians, who are not politicians at all, are trying to raise their rating. And the internal affairs of each country, especially about sovereignty, about leaving the state, about autonomy, are decided by referendum, and not abroad, especially by the statements of the politicians, which, in principle, to put it mildly, is not correct.

      As for the integrity of the territories of the European states, the West was the first to break this rule by tearing Kosovo from Serbia !!! And if he violated, then why is it possible for the West and Russia or for someone else not?

      After the collapse of the USSR, it was also separately agreed that NATO would not expand to the East - and in what place are those agreements now ???

      Does it not seem to you that it’s just disgusting to see people who have dressed in trousers and a Cossack hat, waving yellow-blue ensigns and shouting that they are Patriots and at the same time so cynical attitude to their fellow countrymen - NOT to MOLDOVAN in the neighborhood !!! Some kind of Cossack-patriotic circus !!!

    Something I don’t quite understand - in the case of Serbia, it means that international law clearly does not work, but in the case of Transnistria everyone pokes at it !!! Probably still there are international double standards and not international law ???

    And for example, shooting a video of Hussein’s execution and the brutal murder of Gaddafi is not the Middle Ages? And where did international law look? And this, incidentally, is the death of leaders of countries, world-wide figures - with whom this very International Law greeted and to whom it cynically smiled !!!
    And when the United States unceremoniously invaded the territory of Pakistan (an independent, sovereign state, a member of the UN) - where did International Law look?

    It’s just that some countries - and so it is clear who - are pursuing their goals by not committing themselves particularly to international agreements ... Why can't Russia do the same?

    Sooner or later, but the Empire will be restored. It may not be in such a format as the Russian Empire and not in the same format as the USSR, but still the Empire will be. Empire in the good sense of the word.
    Then Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and many other regions of our vast country will be one state.

    “Moldova is the“ Romanian territory ”.
    Forgotten Relationship Page »

    June 22 is the day of the beginning of the great struggle of the former countries of the Soviet Union with the brown plague of fascism.
    Recently, opinions about this Great War have diverged. But with the main thing - almost everyone agrees that fascism should not be repeated.
    Moldova was under the occupation of the Romanian army, Hitler's ally.
    So what was at that time:
    reunion of two nations;
    or occupation.
    "This is our finest hour! I’m not afraid that History will call us barbarians. The Roman Empire at one time committed a lot of barbarism, and yet it is considered the greatest state."
    And further:
    “I don’t know when, maybe only after a few hundred years, the Romanian people will be given such complete freedom of action, such an opportunity for ethnic cleansing and national renewal. . . And therefore, with full awareness of what is happening, I take full legal responsibility and tell you: existing laws are not for us, existing laws do not oblige us! ”
    Ion Antonescu Bucharest July 8, 1941
    In Bessarabia, in Bukovina ... Every new day is marked by new barbaric murders. New blood streams.
    3 July 1941 th in the town of Miracles 450 Jews destroyed, in the town of Starozhinets - near 200, in the town of Cidin - more than 470 ... On the streets of Novoselets there are hundreds of mutilated corpses lying around, and the streets of the township of Ropchea, Jordaneshty, Patreuche, and Patreucher, in the town of Novoselts, there are hundreds of mutilated corpses. on the battlefield, the number of Jews murdered there will probably never be established.
    4 July killers entered the town of Hertz. Local Jews, who considered themselves “Romanians,” were delighted by the arrival of the Romanian army. Having dressed festively, they went outside the neighborhood to meet their “liberators”. The “Liberators”, too, were apparently pleased to meet with the Jews. They immediately forced all of them to strip naked, brutally beaten and shot.
    On July 5, 460 people were killed in the village of Zhuchik-Nova, all Jews were killed in the villages of Hamnitsa and Drušanyna, and only one Jewish boy survived from 400 of the Jews in the town of Kosteshti. Left orphaned. 6 July in Chernivtsi simultaneously killed about 2000 Jews, in Edinet - 1000, in Novo-Sulitsa still 975 ... And on July 7 it was the turn of the Jews Perlitz, Lipkan, Falesht, Merkulesht, Floresht, Zbrichan. In Zabričany, people were first beaten with rifle butts, then hung upside down on trees, and only then shot. The 80-year-old Leib Kormansky, beaten to a pulpit, was thrown in the middle of the street, where, under the laughter and hooting of the mob, mounted gendarmes turned the body of an unfeeling old man into a bloody mess.
    One of the Romanian officers, by his own admission, shot eight-year-old Jewish children eight times, and still could not kill the unfortunate child. In the end, the child was buried alive in the land. 15 July, a Jewish 123 was killed in Alexandrens, including 38 people who fled from the city of Balti. Witness of this crime - a resident of Alexandren Grigory Mosintsev told (10):
    “My heart was breaking from shots and heartbreaking screams. ... Entire families were destroyed, neither the elderly, nor children, nor even pregnant women spared. Before my eyes, the Rechtel family was killed: two 75-year-old old men, Rechtel’s daughter and granddaughter of 4 months. Six people were killed in the Peretz family, including two children of 6 and 8 years old, and Peretz’s daughter-in-law was killed at the time of delivery ... ”They say that the Romanians did not kill.

    SOME POLICIES WANT TO UNITE TWO STATES.
    WHO WILL REMEMBER THE OLD, THOSE ANY EYES, AND WHO WILL FORGET- BOTH.
    THINK, DECIDE.
