President of Transnistria Yevgeny Shevchuk has repelled the accusations Galina Antyufeeva, the vice speaker of the parliament, made at an extraordinary session of the Supreme Council on April 11.
“This is a blatant lie, which I can assess as active preparations or a launch of the presidential campaign by some political figures. I think the people understand this,” Shevchuk said.
To recall, the Transnistrian parliamentarians demanded the president to “return to the budget 100 million dollars that were embezzled by state officials and other friends of the president.”
According to the president’s press office, the law-enforcement agency of Transnistria was charged to launch inspections over the accusations voiced in the parliament. After the inspections, the president’s administration and the authorized agencies said they are ready to make public the results through mass media.
“No statements will be left unnoticed by the supervisory and law-enforcement agencies. I would like to say that the greatest part of this information is far from being true. Therefore, unfounded accusations are just demonstration of approaches that may destabilize the republic,” he said.
The press office of the State Security Committee of the Transnistrian Moldovan Republic announced on April 12 that investigations were launched over the situation. “On April 11, 2016, at the extraordinary plenary session of the Supreme Council, some deputies made statements accusing President Yevgeny Shevchuk of high treason,” the Security Committee said.
EADaily reported earlier that ex-minister of foreign affairs of Transnistria, the spouse of President Yevgeny Shevchuk Nina Shevchuk (Nina Shtanski before marriage) said seizure of power is being prepared in Transnistria.
She said Sheriff Holding is behind this all. This second largest company in Transnistria funds the parliamentary majority – Renewal Party faction.
