Transnistria asks Russia to recognize local documents

The unrecognized republic of Transnistria has asked Russia to officially recognize documents it issues to its citizens, according to a resolution passed on Tuesday by the republic’s Supreme Council, or legislature.

The Council held hearings on Russia’s present-day policy towards compatriots living in Transnistria. The hearings were attended by members of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house Artyom Turov and Alexey Silanov.

"We adopted a resolution where we ask Russia to recognize documents issued by the Transnistrian Republic," parliament speaker Alexander Shcherba told journalists.

"We are prepared to withstand all types of political and economic pressure but in this situation we understand that we will not be able to hold out in the face of these challenges without fatherly support, without understanding and assistance from the guarantor country we want to join, without Russia’s helping hand," Shcherba added.
