– Moldova’s Transnistria Region “Approves” Appeal To Russia For Independence (Zerohedge, April 16, 2014):
As the EU seeks a closer association with Moldova, the 97% pro-Russian state of Transnistria (that we first warned was next here) is accelerating its move towards independence. As Bloomberg reports, despite condemnation by Moldova’s government of the “direct defiance”, the Transnistria Assembly has approved an appeal to Russia to recognize the region’s independencee. Neighboring Romania is “worried” and there are growing ‘actions’ by the so-called “Supreme Soviet” in the region’s capital.
Who is next?
As Bloomberg reports,
Moldova’s breakaway pro-Russian region of Transnistria has appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin to recognize its independence after Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
The appeal by the Parliament of Transnistria, city and district council members and community associations “express the aspirations of the people of Transnistria” and is based on the results of referendums held in 1991, 1995 and 2006, the parliament of the unrecognized state said on its website.
