People of Transnistria will feel Russia’s solid shoulder, and Russia will stand up for its peacekeepers, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Special Presidential Representative for Transnistria Dmitry Rogozin has said.
He complained that the government in Moldova is in a permanent reshuffle, and “it is unclear with whom to talk there.” Nevertheless, Rogozin expressed hope for a dialog with Chisinau regarding the Transnistria problem. “If Moldova, where most judges of the Constitutional Court are citizens of Romania, chooses the accession to Romania, Transnistria will undoubtedly reject it and become a fully independent state,” the Russian deputy prime minister stressed while answering questions at the Voronezh State University.
According to Rogozin, additional burden in the situation is the fact that governor of the neighboring Ukrainian Odessa Region is Mikheil Saakashvili.
The Russian deputy prime minister described the governor as “some moron” and “evident psychopath.” “He destroyed Georgia by an affair against South Ossetia in 2008 and can get up anything. He is hardly controllable. It is hard to predict anything when you have to deal with people like Saakashvili and Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk,” Dmitry Rogozin concluded.
