Moldova wants international observer mission in Transnistria instead of Russian occupation forces

Russian army deployed in Moldova's breakaway region since 1992

Moldova insists on replacing the Russian peacekeeping [occupation] forces in Transnistria with an international mission of civil observers under UN's control. That's according to Anatol Salaru, Moldova's Defence Minister, reports.

"During the last 25 years Russian army has been present on [occupying] Moldova's territory," the Minister said speaking at NATO Summit in Warsaw.

"We request to support our initiative concerning the transformation of the peacekeeping [occupation] mission in the Transnistian region into a multinational civil mission. We also insist on drawing out the armed forces and equipment of the Russian Federation from Moldova's territory according to the international obligations."
