TIRASPOL, December 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Winner in the Dniester presidential polls Yevgeny Shevchuk has declared in an interview with Itar-Tass that his main priority in foreign politics will be contacts with Russia.
“Russia is a country-guarantor, a peacekeeper which defends the lives of our citizens and gives assistance to the Dniester region. My priority in foreign politics will be strengthening contacts with Russia with which we are planning to develop mutual interaction on a higher level,” Shevchuk told Itar-Tass.
Commenting on priorities in home policies, Shevchuk came out for unity of the Dniester society. “Unity has a serious potential for our development, and we will do everything possible to unite the people. The past election showed that the Dniester people prefer development and stability and that they want people, who are deer to them but who were driven away from homes by the unemployment, to return. Only being united and relying on kindness and wisdom of our people and its industrious nature we can revive the republic,” Shevchuk said. The new authorities intend to establish order in the economy and turn the Dniester region into a territory attractive to investors, Shevchuk said.
