Russian troops withdraw from Transdniestria

July 29 2005

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said that Russian troops will stay in the zone of conflict in Transdniestria up until in the region are Russian warehouses with arms and ammunition. Russian peacekeepers will not leave until the "all property of the Russian Federation will not be withdrawn to Russian territory."

Ivanov expressed his opinion about calls to withdraw Russian troops from Transnistria: "Wanting to do something is not harmful." Russian peacekeepers are in Transnistria on the basis of the mandate of Moldova and Transnistria, the minister explained.

Discussion about the stay of Russian troops in the region unfolded after the signing of Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin of the law on Transnistria's status, providing for withdrawal of Russian troops from the breakaway republic before the end of 2006. Transnistrian authorities have called the law passed by the Moldovan side, profanity, reports RIA Novosti.
