The PMR Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent an official appeal to Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Romania to the RM Marius Lazurca on April 20, 2016 in connection with the confirmation of the fact that the Pridnestrovian airspace was violated by a Romanian aircraft.

Thus, as far as we know, the aircraft taking off from the city of Iasi, intruded illegally into the airspace of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic sixteen times on April 17, 2016, while taking aerial photography of the Pridnestrovian territory.

After a long break, a meeting of expert (working) groups from Pridnestrovie and Moldova on regulatory and document support of citizens was held on April 2016.

“The view is widely held in Russia that the Pridnestrovian conflict is frozen, the situation does not change, there's no hurry. In fact, the situation is rapidly regressing, Moldavia and Ukraine are actively drifting toward the West, while dealing a blow by blow to Pridnestrovie, head of the Foreign Ministry of Pridnestrovie Vitaly Ignatiev told about it to the VZGLYAD newspaper (the “View”). According to him, such actions fit into the logic of “hybrid wars”.
