On May 6, Foreign Minister Vitaly Ignatiev received the International Committee of the Red Cross delegation led by Roman Machover. First Deputy Chairman of the Pridnestrovian Republican Bank Alexei Melnik also took part in the meeting.

The meeting was held as part of a working visit by an ICRC mission aimed at addressing the technical aspects of aid to Ukrainian refugees and residents of Pridnestrovie.


A videoconference meeting between the Pridnestrovian and Moldovan experts on the import of medicines took place today, involving representatives of pharmaceutical companies from Pridnestrovie. The session was also attended by representatives of the mediators in the negotiation process and the WHO delegation in Moldova.

Today, the Foreign Ministry hosted a meeting between Foreign Minister Vitaly Ignatiev and the head of the OSCE Mission Claus Neukirch.

The interlocutors focused on Moldova’s blocking of deliveries of vital goods to Pridnestrovie. First of all, medical products, fertilizers and foodstuffs were referred to. Vitaly Ignatiev negatively assessed today’s statement by the Moldovan government as a self-exposure of the use of the blockade tools for the purpose of political pressure on Pridnestrovie.


We have taken note of the statement by the Moldovan government that was made with the explicit purpose of justifying the blockade and restrictive measures used against Pridnestrovie, but has turned into an act of self-disclosure.


On April 20, an online discussion of expert (working) groups on transport and road infrastructure development was held. Proposals to convene this meeting were repeatedly voiced by the Pridnestrovian side since last December (the previous one took place on September 24, 2021), but were consistently ignored by the Moldovan side.


On April 18, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a request to the head of the European Union Delegation to the Republic of Moldova, Janis Mazeiks, concerning the critical situation around Pridnestrovie’s key enterprise JSC Moldova Steel Works.

The Republic of Moldova continues to block the operation of the plant, in particular, by preventing the import of raw materials and the export of finished products both from the territory of Moldova and in transit through it. Restrictions by the Republic of Moldova may bring severe socio-economic consequences.


Because of the destructive actions of the Moldovan side, medicines needed by the population and medical institutions of Pridnestrovie have been detained for several weeks at the Moldova-Romania border and customs terminals of the Republic of Moldova. In addition to the already withheld cargoes, Moldova refuses to issue permits allowing new consignments of medical supplies to be imported. As a result, a significant part of shipments was stopped and in-demand medicines are in short supply.


Foreign Minister Vitaly Ignatiev gave an interview to journalists from France who came to Pridnestrovie to make a documentary about the republic for French television.


The Foreign Ministry states that Moldova persistently applies administrative and bureaucratic barriers and restrictions against Pridnestrovian importers.

Thus, on April 6 this year, at a meeting of political representative of Pridnestrovie and Moldova, involving Pridnestrovian pharmaceutical companies, the Moldovan side made a public promise, no later than April 11, to let through one of the importing company's goods that had been at Moldovan customs post in Bulboaca since March 27 and April 1  . However, this promise has not been fulfilled.


Due to the continuation of baseless publications on the social media of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, this time about the allegedly provocative actions being prepared by the Russian side on the territory of Pridnestrovie, the PMR’s Foreign Ministry is authorized to state the following.


On April 7, a meeting of expert (working) groups of Pridnestrovie and the Republic of Moldova on customs cooperation was held upon the initiative of the Pridnestrovian side. 


A meeting of Foreign Minister Vitaly Ignatiev with a delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross headed by Francois Muniz was held at the Foreign Ministry. The event was also attended by representatives of the Ministry of Social Protection and Labor and the Ministry of Health.

The meeting took place within the working visit of the ICRC delegation to study the humanitarian needs of Ukrainian refugees and residents of Pridnestrovie in the current regional situation.


The Pridnestrovian Foreign Ministry reports that in the past month neighboring Moldova, using the fact that Ukraine closed its borders with Pridnestrovie in late February, has been actively resorting to administrative and bureaucratic barriers and restrictions deliberately creating tension and interruptions in the import of socially significant goods to Pridnestrovie.


Today, a meeting of political representatives from Pridnestrovie and the Republic of Moldova was held at the office of the OSCE Mission in Chisinau specifically to address the problem of importing medications. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Pridnestrovian Pharmacists Association, the Health Ministry and a number of Pridnestrovian companies importing pharmaceutical products, as well as mediators and observers in the negotiation process.


Today, on March 31, 2022, in view of the decision taken by the Lithuanian government to include the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic as one of the “hostile states”, the PMR’s Foreign Ministry sent a protest note to the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in the Republic of Moldova.


A meeting of political representatives from Pridnestrovie and the Republic of Moldova Vitaly Ignatiev and Oleg Serebrian took place today at the office of the OSCE Mission in Tiraspol.
