The Ministry of Foreign Affairs informs that on December 22 of this year, the customs authorities of the Republic of Moldova unreasonably detained a cargo comprising neutral and Pridnestrovian license plates.

The delegates arrived in Pridnestrovie as international observers for the presidential elections of the PMR, which are scheduled for December 12 this year.


The Foreign Ministry reviewed the statement by the Government of the Republic of Moldova regarding the organization and conduct of the presidential elections of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic on December 12, 2021.
