AFTER CRIMEA VOTE, MOLDOVA’S TRANSNISTRIA REGION ASKS TO JOIN RUSSIA

by  18 Mar 2014 44POST A COMMENT

Politicians in Moldova’s breakaway region of Transnistria have asked the Russian parliament to allow their territory to join the Russian Federation.

The region, also known as Trans-Dniester, forms the part of Moldova on the east bank of the Dniester river. It declared independence from Moldova as the Soviet Union collapsed in the early 1990s, but no state has ever recognised it.
In 2006, the region, dominated by ethnic Russians, reaffirmed its independence in a referendum, but vote was again not recognised by any country.
The Moldova government maintains its claim on the territory and most other countries regard it as forming a part of the eastern European state.
Now, inspired by the vote in Crimea, politicians and activists in the breakaway republic have asked that they too be admitted to the Russian Federation.
BBC News quotes Irina Kubanskikh, a spokeswoman for the Transnistrian parliament, as saying that the regions public bodies had “appealed to the Russian Federation leadership to examine the possibility of extending to Trans-Dniester the legislation, currently under discussion in the State Duma, on granting Russian citizenship and admitting new subjects into Russia.”
The move comes as the rest of Moldova attempts to build stronger ties with the EU. President Nicolae Timofti said that it would be a “step in the wrong direction” for the Russian government to accept the Transnistria region, according to the BBC.
The move would also likely be strongly opposed by Ukraine, which would end up with Russian territory on both its eastern and western borders, as well as to the south.

TAP – This would be very uncomfortable for Ukraine.  Odessa, Ukraine’s only remaining sea port of significance (once Crimea is gone) is close to Crimea and Transnistria.  Were the two to ever join up with Odessa a city of very mixed ethnicity, Ukraine would be cut off from the sea.  Sevastopol has a vast grain silo for corn shipments right next to Russia’s military base where Ukraine’s corn is shipped to the world.  Odessa is less significant as a port than Sevastopol, and Ukraine will have to ship most of her produce out through Crimea (soon to be Russia) as it is.
