MOSCOW, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Kremlin administration does not mention any timeframe for a possible examination of the application from the authorities of Transdniestria, who ask to recognize the breakaway region as a sovereign independent state.

Russian News Service radio with reference to presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov reports that an exact timeframe for examining the application is not known yet. Peskov also pointed out that he does not know through which channels the application of Transdniestria's Supreme Council was forwarded.
