TIRASPOL, July 6. /TASS/. Transdnisetrian President Yevgeny Shevchuk has thanked the Russian leadership for implementing humanitarian projects and helping retired people during the crisis in the breakaway republic.
"On behalf of the Transdniestrian people, I want to thank you for providing humanitarian aid, fulfilling several projects on the territory of the Transdniestrian Moldovan Republic in the framework of humanitarian cooperation. Among them are projects ‘Eurasian Integration’, humanitarian aid to retired people and a rather broad range of cooperation in different spheres, which creates conditions for maintaining the standard of living for Transdniestrian citizens," Shevchuk said on Wednesday at talks with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
The Transdniestrian president also noted "contribution of the Russian leadership in such uneasy conditions to maintaining the standard of living for compatriots, Russian citizens residing on the territory of Transdniestria."
The Transdniestrian conflict started in March 1992 when the first clashes occurred between Moldovan police and Transdniestrian militia near the city of Dubossary, which were followed by an outbreak of armed hostilities. By summer, it had developed into large-scale fighting in Bendery, where about a thousand people were killed and tens of thousands were wounded and became refugees.
The fratricidal war was stopped after a peace agreement was signed in Moscow in July of the same year and Russian peacekeepers were brought into the conflict area. Since then, they have been guarding peace and calm in the region, together with their Moldovan and Transdniestrian colleagues, thus allowing Chisinau and Tiraspol to conduct negotiations on the settlement of the conflict around the breakaway republic.
