TIRASPOL, January 27 /TASS/. The Foreign Ministry of Moldova’s unrecognized Republic of Transdniestria has accused Moldova of tightening border crossing rules for the republic’s residents for no reason.
Citizens who use Russian and Ukrainian passports for foreign trips are facing great problems, Transdniestria’s Foreign Ministry press service said on Wednesday.
"Moldovan border guards demand residence permits or foreign passports from these people," the foreign ministry said. Any identity paper issued in Transdniestria is enough to confirm the fact of permanent residence in Transdniestria. Tiraspol regards the Moldovan side’s actions as a direct violation of the agreements reached during negotiations on the settlement in Transdniestria," the foreign ministry said.
Most people in Transdniestria have Russian and Ukrainian passports. That allows them to cross the borders of both countries unhindered.
The relations between Chisinau and Tiraspol deteriorated last year largely due to the political crisis in Moldova where several governments have changed.
