MOSCOW, November 11. /TASS/. The withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria is Ukraine’s provocative plan since Kiev is not eligible to take such decisions, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Grigory Karasin said in an interview with TASS on Friday.
"This is a provocative plan, Ukraine does not have a right to take such decisions," he stressed.
Karasin pointed out that Russian troops were deployed to Transnistria in accordance with international agreements. "They will remain there as long as it is necessary to maintain security," the diplomat noted.
At the same time he said that such "crazy ideas that Ukraine comes up with from time to time, inflict the situation in Moldova as well as in Ukraine."
Moldovan Defense Minister Anatoly Salaru said following a meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart Stepan Poltorak that Chisinau and Kiev intended to draw up a joint plan on the withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria, that would stipulate setting up a ‘green corridor’ across Ukraine’s territory. According to Salaru, Moldova plans to turn to international bodies for assistance in the withdrawal of Russian troops.
