The President-elect of Moldova also spoke out for the replacement of Russian peacekeepers in Transnistria by a civilian observer mission under the OSCE auspices

Moldovan President-elect Sandu advocated for the withdrawal of the Russian Operational Group (OGRF), as well as ammunition, from Transnistria.

“There is an operational group of Russian troops in Transnistria, for which there has never been any agreement on the part of Moldova. Therefore, the position of the state is that these troops should be withdrawn and weapons should be taken out of our country”, –  said Sandu at a press conference on Monday.

Sandu also spoke out for the replacement of Russian peacekeepers in Transnistria by a civilian observer mission under the OSCE auspices.

“Due to the fact that there is no danger of armed clashes for a long time, the Moldovan side’s position is that this [peacekeeping] mission should be transformed into a civilian mission under the OSCE aegis”, –  she said.
