Background:

  • Unrecognised Transnistria adopted an appeal to Russia asking for "protection from Moldova's pressure", also addressing a number of international organisations.
  • Moldova does not believe this will lead to escalation and destabilisation. 
  • Before the congress, there were fears that the so-called MPs could urge Moscow to annex the unrecognised region to Russia, but official statements in Chișinău, Kyiv and Tiraspol denied such assumptions.
