For the first time in a very long time (in 1,5 of the year), a meeting took place between the head of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, Yevgeny Shevchuk, and the Prime Minister of Moldova. It should be noted that Kirill Gaburici, who met with Shevchuk, recently became head of the Moldavian Cabinet of Ministers. The meeting was held in a constructive manner, and in the course of it we managed to reach agreements that actually lifted the blockade that the Transdnistrian Moldavian Republic organized by Chisinau. Recall that lately the actions of Chisinau and Kiev led to the blocking of Transnistria, putting the citizens of the region in, to put it mildly, a difficult economic situation.
The heads of the Transdniestrian Moldavian Republic and the Moldovan government agreed to extend the agreement on freight rail traffic through the territory of Transnistria until the end of 2016. The protocol was signed in 2012 year, but recently its execution was a big question.
Yevgeny Shevchuk noted that agreements with Chisinau, taking into account the interests of both parties, can put an end to the upward trend in the scale of the republic’s economic problems and the decline in the living standards of Transnistrian residents.
