Moldovan President Demands To Withdraw Russian Troops From Transnistria

Moldovan President Maia Sandu said the Russian Federation should withdraw its troops from occupied Transnistria because they violate the Republic’s neutrality. She said this at a meeting of the European Parliament on Wednesday, May 18.

Sandu stated that Moldova condemns Russian aggression [and] said that Russia should withdraw its military contingent from the territory of Moldova.

“Today there is no inevitable threat of Moldova’s involvement in a military conflict, we are a neutral country, but for this we call for the withdrawal of the Russian military from the territory of Transnistria, because their presence fundamentally undermines our independence, our neutrality,” Sandu emphasized.

She also said that Moldova…has a plan for the peaceful reintegration of Transnistria.
