Delegated States at the OSCE Council Meeting Addressed Security Issues Within Moldova’s Breakaway Transnistrian Region
09 October 2020 | 08:53

On Thursday, during the meeting of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Council, Moldova’s Delegation addressed the issue of illegal borders in the Security Zone, and the Tiraspol regime’s restrictions of free movement and violation of human rights in the Transnistrian breakaway region of Moldova.

The Moldovan Delegation aimed to get the OSCE participating States’ attention to the Security Zone’s deteriorating situation. The administrative city Tiraspol uses the Covid-19 pandemic situation for political and self-isolation purposes by installing a series of illegal checkpoints on the Nistru River banks.

The Delegation of Moldova highlighted the illegal control infrastructure and traffic restrictions imposed by the so-called Tiraspol authorities, undermining the Security Zone administration and compromising the existing peacekeeping mechanism. Thus, these actions cause tension and destabilization of the situation in the breakaway region. 

Also, the participating states were informed about the worsening of the human rights situation on the left bank of the Nistru River, regarding cases of convictions and abusive detentions, arrests, and intimidation on the grounds of expressing the civic opinion. The subject of sequestration of the Floresti Police Inspectorate collaborator, Andrei Amarfi, was also brought to the attention of the OSCE, being called to intervene operatively in solving the case.

The Permanent Delegations of the European Union, the United States, the United Kingdom, Ukraine, Georgia, and Turkey expressed concern regarding the worsening human rights situation in the breakaway Transnistrian region, introducing illegal checkpoints, and the restriction of free movement in the area. The States’ representatives demand the unconditional removal of all barriers to freedom for the population movements on both banks of the Nistru River.

The mentioned international participants reconfirmed their support for the Transnistrian conflict’s peaceful settlement while respecting Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders. The Delegations called on the OSCE Mission to Moldova to intensify monitoring in the Security Zone and on the left bank of the Nistru River.
