Transnistrian President Vadim Krasnoselsky has addressed the Transnistrians before the presidential election in Russian asking to be active at the election.
“The presidential election is a significant and effective instrument of democracy that everyone can and must use,” Krasnoselsky said.
According to the Transnistrian leader, votes of compatriots “contribute significantly to the determination of Russia’s future.” “Every fourth Russian citizen living outside Russia voted at Transnistrian polling stations,” he said.
According to Krasnoselsky, the future of Transnistria is closely connected with Russia. “In 2006, the Transnistrian people unambiguously voted for independence and future accession to the Russian Federation,” he noted.
He called every Transnistrian Russian to fulfil his or her duty and vote, Vadim Krasnoselsky concluded.
Earlier, Tiraspol announced that the preparations for the election of the Russian president are over. More than 700 people will be organizing the voting process at 24 polling stations. One of the largest Russian diasporas lives in the region. The number of Russian citizens in Transnistria is more than 220,000.
