CHISINAU, April 4. /TASS/. The unrecognized republic of Transnistria has asked Russia to officially recognize documents it issues to its citizens, according to a resolution passed on Tuesday by the republic’s Supreme Council, or legislature.
The Council held hearings on Russia’s present-day policy towards compatriots living in Transnistria. The hearings were attended by members of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house Artyom Turov and Alexei Silanov.
"We adopted a resolution where we ask Russia to recognize documents issued by the Transnistrian Republic," parliament speaker Alexander Shcherba told journalists.
Apart from that, in his words, the resolutions informs Russia’s leadership about Moldova’s and Ukraine’s preparations for the deployment of a joint border checkpoint at the Transnistrian border section and about "politically-motivated efforts to squeeze the Moldovan State District Power Plant owned by Russia’s RAO UES of Russia from Moldova’s energy market."
"We are prepared to withstand all types of political and economic pressure but in this situation we understand that we will not be able to hold out in the face of these challenges without fatherly support, without understanding and assistance from the guarantor country we want to join, without Russia’s helping hand," Shcherba added.
According to earlier reports, during Moldovan Prime Minister Pavel Filip’s visit to Kiev in February, the sided reached an agreement to speed up work to establish joint control over the Transnistrian section of the border. The first joint border checkpoint is expected to be opened before the yearend near the settlement of Kuchurgany. Transnistria sees these actions as an attempt at economic pressure.
