TIRASPOL, March 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Public organizations of the Dniester region have appealed to Russia’s State Duma, asking to add a clause to Russian legislation which might offer a possibility of accession to Russia of the self-proclaimed Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic.
The resolution was adopted at a round-table meeting attended by deputies of the Dniester parliament and representatives of youth organizations, head of the local parliament’s press service Irina Kubanskikh told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
In 2006, Transnistria held a referendum similar to Sunday's referendum in Crimea, at which 97% of the population voted for independence from Moldova with subsequent accession to Russia.
