Statement by the PMR Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Connection with the Red Level of Terrorist Threat


On April 25-26, the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic came under three terrorist attacks, which prompted the Security Council to adopt the decision to introduce the highest red level of terrorist threat in Pridnestrovie.

At present, the State authorities of the republic are implementing a broad set of measures towards ensuring peace, stability and security of all residents of Pridnestrovie.

Due to extraordinary circumstances, the previously introduced simplified procedure for crossing the state border of the PMR on Easter and memorial days has been canceled. Furthermore, a notification entry order for the staff of embassies, diplomatic missions and representative offices of international organizations accredited in neighboring Moldova has been put in place.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PMR, including its document legalization unit, and the mobile consular office providing services for Russian citizens in Tiraspol continue to function as normal.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic stays in active working contact with authorized representatives of the Russian Federation, the OSCE, and the foreign ministries of a number of friendly countries.

At the same time, we draw attention to the fact that the Moldovan side has not entered into any form of communication with Pridnestrovie via traditional political and diplomatic channels in connection with the terrorist incidents, which disavows the information previously disseminated by Chisinau alleging that such cooperation was in place.

Amid the most serious challenges for Pridnestrovie, the only form of activity on the part of neighboring Moldova is its further anti-humanitarian policies in the form of blocking the import of vital goods to the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, including medicines, food, industrial raw materials, fertilizers and other products.
