As it was stressed, these accusations are unsubstantiated and provocative.

Pridnestrovian representatives also expressed their concern about refusal of a number of U.S. banks to maintain correspondent accounts of Pridnestrovie. Such actions create obstacles for Pridnestrovian banks in carrying out international financial transactions.
