Igor Dodon is expected at the Prosecutor's Office of the self-proclaimed Transnistrian Moldovan Republic (RMN), who announces that he is ready to hear and verify any information related to the diversion of funds provided by the Russian Federation to the population of the left bank of the Dniester River for help. The invitation comes after the country's president told a TV station that the Transnistrians stole money from Russia.
The head of the Prosecutor's Office in the auto-proclaimed region, Anatolie Guretsky, says that Dodon uses tactics that have been already used for many years by Moldovan politicians. This would consist in the permanent prosecution of the TMR for corruption, smuggling and concealment of other offenses.
"If Mr Dodon holds the appropriate information, concrete facts or documents, we are ready to receive them. If there are facts, they must be presented, and we will do everything to find out the truth. There have been misdemeanors or PR, however, these statements are used for political, populist purposes, I would say. Of course, we are interested in finding out the truth”, said the so-called prosecutor of the MRI, quoted by novostipmr.com.
Guretsky also said that employees of the TMR Prosecutor's Office are ready to meet personally with the head of state and representatives of the Republic of Moldova.
The leadership of the self-proclaimed region claims that Dodon's statement was made on the background of the audit work currently carried out by Russian experts in Transnistria.
The results of the audit would be announced by July 1, 2017.
In the same context, the Transnistrian leader, Vadim Krasnoselski, suggested to Igor Dodon not to interfere with Transdnistria's relationship with the Russian Federation.
