Krasnoselsky: Transnistrian people are for independence

Vadim Krasnoselsky

The referendum for self-determination had already been held in Transnistria, the president of the unrecognized republic Vadim Krasnoselsky said commenting Moldovan President Igor Dodon’s statement that “Transnistrian issue should be settled nationally.”

“Here, in Transnistria in 2006, the people voted for independence of Transnistria and for further unification with Russia. We see no need for repeated referendums for the given issue. The people have made their choice,” Krasnoselsky said.

He said the country will not abandon its course for independence and international recognition.

“Moldova as a sovereign state can hold any referendums, it is their internal affair,” the president said.

On September 17, 2006, an independence referendum was held in the Transnistrian Moldovan Republic (TMR). The people answered two questions: “Do you support the policy for independence of the TMR and further free unification with the Russian Federation?” and “Do you think it possible to refuse from independence of TMR and become part of the Republic of Moldova?”

The first question was supported by 97.1% of the Transnistrian people and only 2.3% answered negatively. The second question was supported by 3.4% of the TMR people and 94.6% answered negatively.

As EADaily reported earlier, President of Moldova Igor Dodon said the president, parliament and government should not have different stances on the Transnistrian issue.

“Reintegration of the country is an issue of national importance,” he said. Dodon is sure that combined efforts are needed to achieve a result.
