“There is no progress in the political settlement of the Transnistrian conflict. For Russia, it is important to maintain a focus of tension in the region,” the diplomat said.
According to the ambassador, Russia while maintaining this focus is hindering the normal development of the region.
He also stressed that Ukraine was doing everything possible to resolve the situation, including by creating joint control points with Moldova on the Transnistrian part of the Moldovan-Ukrainian border.
