Meeting between Yevgeny Shevchuk and Dmitry Rogozin


The meeting between President of Pridnestrovie Yevgeny Shevchuk and Deputy Prime Minister, Special Representative of the Russian President on Pridnestrovie Dmitry Rogozin took place on November 3 in Moscow. They discussed the situation related to the effects of external pressure on the economy and transport logistics of Pridnestrovie. Particular attention was paid to the adverse external impulses that complicate the social and economic situation of Russian citizens residing in Pridnestrovie and compatriots.

The sides stressed the counterproductive actions aimed at destabilization of the functioning of the economy of the PMR on the part of the countries neighbouring with Pridnestrovie. According to Special Representative of the Russian President on Pridnestrovie Dmitry Rogozin, the effects of such efforts are especially dangerous in this region of Europe, where political tensions are high between the conflicting parties – Tiraspol and Kishinev - and where peacekeeping operations is implemented. Peace and stability in Pridnestrovie, in the Russian side’s view, should be the foundation for constructive and productive talks. As noted during the dialogue, it is impossible to achieve at the time when members of the negotiating format - Ukraine, Moldova - use the practice of restrictions on movement of citizens of the PMR with Russian citizenship, implement the policy of criminal prosecution of officials of bodies of state authority and economic entities of the PMR, use various measures of non-tariff restrictions on carrying out foreign economic activity by Pridnestrovian enterprises, thereby achieving a destabilizing effect in Pridnestrovie itself and contributing to the expansion of poverty of citizens residing in Pridnestrovie.

At the initiative of the Pridnestrovian side the meeting discussed the creation of economic prerequisites for promoting exports to the Russian Federation’s market, which is traditional for Pridnestrovian goods, in connection with which to develop solutions in this area is defined as one of the priorities of cooperation between Russia and Pridnestrovie.
