Moldova: Breakaway Transnistria asks Russia for ‘protection’

28 February 2024

Pro-Moscow separatist officials in Moldova’s breakaway Transnistria region have appealed to Russia for “protection.” Moscow called aiding residents of Transnistria a “priority.” …

A special congress of the region is understood to have passed a resolution on the issue on Wednesday.

Officials are set to ask Russia’s Federation Council and the State Duma “to implement measures to protect Transnistria in the face of increased pressure from Moldova,” local media reported the resolution as saying.

Transnistria had been secretive about the reason for holding a special congress, only the seventh in its history and the first since 2006. That congress saw deputies announce a referendum on integrating with Russia, a vote that resulted in an overwhelming majority in favor.

However, it did say that officials would address the deepening row over customs duties with the government in Moldova’s capital, Chisinau.

“The decisions of the current congress cannot be ignored by the international community,” the “foreign policy chief” of the self-styled republic, Vitaly Ignatiev, told the meeting. Ignatiev did not indicate what those decisions would be.  https://www.dw.com/en/moldova-breakaway-transnistria-asks-russia-for-protection/a-68396033

Breakaway Transnistria Asks Russia For ‘Protection’ – Setting Stage For Military Intervention

February 28, 2024

As previously predicted, things are erupting in Transnistria at a moment Western officials have warned Moscow not to expand its war beyond Ukraine. The breakaway pro-Russian Moldova region on Wednesday issued a formal request from Moscow for “protection” “in the face of increased pressure,” according to AFP.

A special congress of pro-Russian officials passed a resolution which charges the Moldovan government in Chisinau with unleashing “economic war” against Transnistria with an aim to turn it into a “ghetto”, which has included blocking imports.

While internationally, the thin sliver of land has been internationally recognized as part of Moldova, it has been under Russian troop presence going all the way back to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The breakaway republic issued a statement further saying that “The decisions of the current congress cannot be ignored by the international community.”

The formal request is expected to be put before Russia’s Federation Council and the State Duma at any moment. It asks for Russia “to implement measures to protect Transnistria in the face of increased pressure from Moldova” – and clearly this language suggests military intervention, or else other measures like immense economic and political pressure on Moldova.

Last year, the Council of Europe had formally declared Moldova’s breakaway region to “occupied territory” – upgrading its status from what was deemed territory “under the effective control of the Russian Federation.” https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/breakaway-transnistria-asks-russia-protection-setting-stage-military-intervention

Russian state media says that the country’s parliament and Federation Council is preparing to respond positively to Transistria’s earlier urgent requestion for Moscow’s ‘protection’ from Moldova, a small eastern European country supported by Washington. Russian legislators have “put forward a request to both the Federation Council and State Duma of Russia, urging them to implement measures to safeguard Transnistria, especially in light of Moldova’s growing pressure. This request is backed up by the fact that over 220,000 Russian citizens reside in Transnistria.”

The Biden administration has responded by saying it is “closely watching” the situation, calling the breakaway “occupied” by Russian forces (since Soviet times). “The United States firmly supports Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders,” the State Department said Wednesday. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/breakaway-transnistria-asks-russia-protection-setting-stage-military-intervention

Transnistria is more or less part of the northeast of Moldova that borders Ukraine. It has never really wanted to be part of Moldova, but the international community has tended to ignore it. Russia has a different view and has been involved with Transnistria for years. Furthermore, Russia actually would like to add all of Ukraine as well as Moldova to it or at least its Eurasian Economic Union. That said, at minimum, it looks like Russia wants at least enough territory that Ukraine now holds to connect it to Transnistria. The USA and the EU do not want more territories to align with Russia, despite what many Russian speakers want.

Nearly two years ago, the BBC reported the following:

Ukraine war: Russia ‘plans to seize southern Ukraine’

22 April 2022

Russia aims to seize southern Ukraine and to open a route to the separatist region of Transnistria in Moldova, a senior Russian general says.

Maj Gen Rustam Minnekayev specified that Moscow would seek to take “full control” over the south in addition to the eastern Donbas region – the stated objective of the Russian authorities.

Transnistria is a small Russian-backed region that borders Ukraine.  ruary. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-61188943

If Russia does succeed in doing that, Ukraine would lose access to the sea.

That said, many in Transnistria want to be part of Russia or at least part of its Eurasian Economic Union as we reported here before (see USA and EU add more sanctions; whereas Transnistria Assembly wants to be part of Russia and/or its Eurasian Economic Union).

They believe that they will be economically and culturally ahead with Russia as opposed to Moldova.

Russia, Sanctions, Transnistria, Europe & Prophecy

In 2014 the USA and European Union put sanctions on Russia because of its acquisition of Crimea. Since Russia’s ‘Special Military Operation’ into Ukraine, more sanctions were added. On February 23, 2024, the EU and USA announced more sanctions. Did the sanctions turn the “ruble into rubble” as Joe Biden hoped? Did Russia acquire more territory as Dr. Thiel warned in 2013, 2018, and 2022 prior to the current conflict? Was he right about sanctions? Will Russia and Europe acquire more territory? Will they one day trade more with each other? Will they one day turn against each other? What about Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Georgia, and Armenia? Are the Russian-led ‘kings of the Medes’ prophesied to destroy the coming Babylonian European Beast power? Does Europe, starting with Benelux to the European Economic Community to the European Union look to be fulfilling Daniel 8:9? Steve Dupuie and Dr. Thiel address these issues.
