Moscow, May 8 – The Transnistrian conflict has its own unique origin and history, so the authorities of the unrecognized Transnistrian Moldavian Republic (PMR) prefer not to be similar to the situation around Donbass, said the head of the PMR office in Russia Leonid Manakov in an interview with the News Agency.
According to the diplomat, Tiraspol invited Chisinau to participate in the negotiation process and de-escalate the conflict. “We are convinced that escalation in this region will lead to dire consequences, so instead of taking the path of confrontation, we need to invest in peace and stability that benefits everyone,” he stressed.
Transnistria, 60% of whose population is Russian and Ukrainian, sought to secede from Moldova in the last years of the Soviet Union. The reason for this was the fear that Moldova would join Romania in the wake of nationalist rhetoric. In 1992, after an unsuccessful attempt by Chişinău to solve the problem by force, Transnistria became a de facto independent region.
