I know. Two articles in a row with the same protagonist can be boring. But it’s not my fault if the Russian Deputy Prime Minister, with responsibility for politically incorrect affairs, as well as Putin’s special representative for the Transnistria, is so full of resources. Dmitry Rogozin knows which strings touch to unnerve his European partners. After making NATO’s hair curl with his statements on the Arctic, he has completely changed latitude. “Transnistria could become a fully independent state,” he said, breaking the calm on the de facto republic. He took advantage of the tumultuous political situation in Moldova, whom the territory of Transnistria de jure belongs, and the possible reunification of the former Soviet republic with Romania. One hypothesis is always in the air in Kishinau, but never really on the political agenda. Indeed, Rogozin has just said that “If Moldova, where most judges of the Constitutional Court are citizens of Romania, chooses the accession to Romania, Transnistria will undoubtedly reject it and become a fully independent state.” He said “undoubtedly”.
