  • Commentary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine on the situation in the Transnistrian region of Moldova
    Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, posted 28 February 2024 21:42

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is closely following the latest developments in the Transnistrian region of Moldova and calls for a peaceful resolution of economic, social and humanitarian issues between Chisinau and Tiraspol without any destructive external interference.

    Ukraine stands for a peaceful settlement of the Transnistrian conflict with respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Moldova.

    We consider the 5+2 negotiation format to be non-functional due to the presence of the aggressor state russia, which cannot act as a peacekeeper in any peaceful settlement.

    Ukraine is and will remain an active participant in the Transnistrian settlement process and identifies the reintegration of the Republic of Moldova as its main goal.

    In addition, Ukraine continues to advocate for the speedy withdrawal of russian troops from the Transnistrian region of Moldova, the disposal of ammunition at the Kovbasna depots, and the reformatting of the mission on the Dniester from a military to a civilian one.

    For ten years, Ukraine has been resisting russian aggression and for more than two years has been resisting russia’s full-scale invasion. Our country knows the horrors of war and the price of peace better than anyone else. We are making and will continue to make every effort to preserve stability and strengthen security in Europe, as well as to prevent any attempts by russia to destabilize Moldova or other countries in our region.
