TIRASPOL, April 16./ITAR-TASS/. Transdniestrian authorities ask Russia to recognize the breakaway republic as a sovereign independent state.
The treatment was accepted by the Supreme Council of Transdniestrian State Duma and addressed to the Russian Federation Council and the President of Russia, the press service of the legislature said.
They explained that this decision based on the results of the last referendum in Transdniestria, where the vast majority of the region's residents voted for independence and annexation to Russia. This is not the first call to Moscow authorities for recognition, but now the reason to come back to this issue was the Crimea re-unification with Russia.
"Transdniestria does not legally different from the Crimea, and the process of reunification with Russia should be held on the Crimean scenario," said the lawmaker Vyacheslav Tobuh.
It is assumed that on Thursday a delegation of MPs led by Sseaker Michael Burle will go to Moscow, where they plan to meet with the speaker of the State Duma Sergei Naryshkin.
