In solidarity with the Crimean Tatars, the Transnistrian activists decided to close the border with the PMR, New Region news agency reports.
Oleg Khvoschevskyi, Chairman of Transnistrians Union of Ukraine public organization, claimed that the activists decided to support the Crimean Tatars, intending to close the border with the peninsula in protest against the Russia’s occupation of Crimea. In solidarity with the Crimean Tatars, they decided to close the border with the PMR as they believe that the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic 100 per cent depends on Ukraine in terms of economy.
“Moreover, our Moldovan comrades, who fled the Putin regime and had to live in Moldova, will block the border with Transnistria from Moldova,” Oleg Khvoschevskyi said.
He also specified that Kuchurgan checkpoint would be closed in Ukraine and Bendery checkpoint in Moldova. In his opinion, this action is quite logical as the Russian military base in the PMR territory is partially supplied with goods from Ukraine.
As a reminder: Having announced the blockade of Crimea, the leaders of Crimean Tatars noted that the economic war is an integral part of all armed confrontations. Given that economic war against Ukraine had been launched by Russia before the annexation of Crimean and military operations in Donbas, the blockade of Crimea and the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic could be considered as ‘tit-for-tat action’.
