MOSCOW, March 18. /TASS/. Ukraine’s role in the efforts to intensify the Transnistria settlement process over the past year has been not as balanced as required by the status of a mediator and guarantor state, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday after talks with his Gabonese counterpart Emmanuel Issoze-Ngondet.
"Ukraine actually contributed - and continues to do so - to organizing something like an economic blockade of Transnistria and, in my estimation, played up to the mood of those who would like to use the prospects of Moldova’s association with the European Union for forcing the Transnistria authorities to meet the conditions put forward by Chisinau, " the Russian Foreign Minister said.
"We’re convinced that a unilateral approach is unacceptable," Lavrov said, adding that "the underlying stances of the parties to the Transnistria conflict remained polar opposite."
