TIRASPOL, December 25. /ITAR-TASS/. The parliament of Moldova’s breakaway republic of Transdniestria has approved in the first reading an initiative put forth by President Yevgeny Shevchuk to introduce Russia’s federal legislation.
Deputies have voted for making amendments to the Constitution and they will decide on them at the second reading and after consultations with experts.
Addressing parliamentarians, the Transdniestrian leader said the initiative included the people’s will when residents voted for being part of Russia at the 2006 referendum.
Shevchuk proposes to introduce Russia’s federal legislation in addition to local legislation. Russian laws should become priority ones in the republic “while Transdniestria’s legislation should be on the sub-federal level”, he said.
“Transdniestria faces the problem of building in a new economic reality after Moldova signed a free trade zone agreement with the European Union. The refusal to ignore the interests of people living in the conflict zone and the attempts to impose certain conditions on them prove uncovered pressure,” the Transdniestrian president said.
Transdniestria voices concern about the fact that Moldova and the European Union initialled the Association Agreement. They fear that if Ukraine signs the document, Transdniestria can be imposed an economic embargo.
