On the Meeting of Political Representatives


Today, Minister of Foreign Affairs Vitaly Ignatiev met with the Political Representative from the Republic of Moldova, Vladislav Kulminski, at the Bendery office of the OSCE Mission.

A range of current problems in view of the recently limited access of the Pridnestrovian vehicles to the international traffic and, in particular, to the territory of Ukraine was the central topic of discussion. In this context, the entire set of issues reflected in the OSCE Mission's summary protocol of October 7, 2020 was addressed, as well as the problem of blocking the cargo-passenger carriers of Pridnestrovie, not covered by the 2018 mechanism.

The interlocutors agreed on the need to hold in the very near future a meeting of expert (working) groups on road transport, with the participation of political representatives of the parties, in order to thoroughly work out solutions in the road transport sector and reduce the adverse impact caused by Ukraine's move.

During the meeting, views were also exchanged as to other pressing issues of the negotiating agenda.

The PMR's citizens who have faced difficulties when returning to Pridnestrovie in transit through the territory of Ukraine, please contact the PMR's Foreign Ministry by e-mail office@mid.gospmr.org in order to be promptly  assisted in the given situation.
