In connection with the ongoing attacks by certain high-ranking officials of the neighboring Moldova regarding the methods used by Pridnestrovie to contain the pandemic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PMR underscores the following.

The controlled quarantine crossing points on the border of Pridnestrovie with the Republic of Moldova function primarily and explicitly to protect the health of the Pridnestrovian citizens by preventing a massive disease “importation” from abroad.



In recent months, the Republic of Moldova, disregarding its obligations within the negotiation process and abandoning the normal working dialogue, deliberately raises tensions and arranges provocative actions on the border with the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic.

Pridnestrovie has information about provocative actions planned by the Moldovan side in the Security Zone, targeting inter alia the members of the Joint Peacekeeping Forces, which can seriously destabilize the situation and lead to unpredictable consequences.
