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.
Later, the Transnistrian administration developed a concept of adapting the local and Russian legislative acts in the field of the economics and civil law.
In 2013, Transnistrian leader Yevgeny Shevchuk stated that free parallel circulation of the Russian ruble and the Transnistrian currency was possible, thus, making easier the accounting with members of the Customs Union.
Russian government meets on March 20 to discuss the actual Transnistria blockade by Ukraine, - said Deputy Prime Minister Dmirty Rogozin.
“Definitely, we will hold big and serious meeting on 20 March with all the ministers and departments order in Transnistrian governance felt the presence of major consultants and advisors from the Russian government in regard to issues of how to survive the economic blockade, which today already is a reality, - said the deputy head of the Russian government.
