Russian MFA says Protection of Transnistria is a “Priority”

Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has told TASS that the protection of Transnistria is a “priority” after the Moldovan break away state formally asked Russia during a special congress for protection “in the context of increasing pressure from Moldova,” which it has described as an “economic blockade.”

“Protecting the interests of the residents of Pridestrovie, our compatriots, is one of the priorities. All requests are always carefully considered by the Russian relevant
departments,” the Ministry said.
