Vitaly Ignatiev: Official Representation of the PMR in Russia will perform a wide range of tasks


According to the PMR Foreign Minister, official working meetings of the President of the Republic and other Heads of government bodies, and legislators will be held here, round tables and conferences will be organized.

The Official Representation of Pridnestrovie has opened in Moscow today. The President of the PMR with his wife, senators and deputies of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, Pridnestrovian, Russian, Abkhazian, South Ossetian and Nagorno-Karabakh diplomats, social activists, experts, and scientists attended the ceremony.

The Head of the PMR Foreign Ministry called the Official Representation of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic in Moscow a working platform that will perform complex functional tasks.

“Representation means official working meetings of the President and other Heads of government bodies, legislators, round tables, conferences, briefings, communication with representatives of the expert community of the Russian Federation. And, of course, an important component is the work with our citizens who live in Russia. It should be noted that we have a very large diaspora of compatriots who have been living in Russia for quite a long time. These are the people who stood at the origins of the creation of Pridnestrovie, who did much to ensure the development and existence of the Republic. They are active, providing assistance at various levels, including in establishing public relations between Pridnestrovie and Russia. It is gratifying that today they are present at the opening ceremony of the Official Representation”, the PMR Foreign Minister Vitaly Ignatiev stressed.

Today, the Head of the Official Representation, Leonid Manakov, also spoke about the tasks of the Official Representation. According to him, it will develop social and economic ties, promote issues of culture, sports, organize meetings so that people know and understand the conditions in which the Pridnestrovian nation lives.

“Vadim Krasnoselsky has noted that today there is Development Strategy for Pridnestrovie for the long term. This is extremely important. This strategy has an idea. At one time Fyodor Dostoevsky, and even earlier – Confucius – said that if there is no national idea, if there is no idea in society, then this state cannot exist and such a society is doomed to failure. We have to get the essence and content of the Pridnestrovian Development Strategy across the foreign states, so that they see that Pridnestrovie has the right to independence, self-sustainability. We have to develop existing and establish new ties in commerce, culture, in all areas, so that it brings benefit to the Pridnestrovian people”, explained Leonid Manakov.
