MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has refused to comment on a decree issued by the unrecognized Transdniestria republic in Moldova on beginning its accession to Russia.
"I cannot answer this question, I don’t know any reaction (of the Kremlin on this decision)," he said. "We need to understand on what such actions are based," he added, giving no more details.
Transdniestria President Yevgeniy Shevchuk has earlier ordered to set up a state commission within two weeks on bringing the legislation of the unrecognized republic in line with Russia’s federal law.
He signed a decree on implementing the outcome of the referendum held in September 2006 when the overwhelming majority of citizens voted for the independence and further accession to Russia.
Moscow has not earlier said it recognized the results of the referendum.
