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.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Council of Transdniestria adopted an application addressed to the State Duma lower house of the Russian parliament, the Federation Council upper house, and the President of Russia with a request to recognize the independence of the breakaway region.
An official in the press service of Transdniestria's legislature told ITAR-TASS that the decision was adopted on the strength of the results of the referendum held in Transdniestria in 2006 when 97% of the region's people had declared in favor of independence and a subsequent free accession to Russia.
