Considering the regrettable evolution of events in the separatist security zone of Transnistria, we find that one-sided actions of the self-proclaimed authorities of Transnistria, such as the adoption of the so-called State border, coordinating intense military exercises in the city of Bender, blocking activities carried by the Unified Controlling Commission and by military expert teams - lead to the obstruction of constitutional institutions activities of the Republic of Moldova and do nothing but degrade the regulation process of the frozen conflict.

These actions, by the self-proclaimed authorities of Transnistria deteriorate the situation, as they obstruct the free circulation of citizens of both banks of the river Dniestr, generate additional human rights violations, and sow panic within the population, already frightened by the possibility of a new armed conflict.

We therefore call upon the constitutional authorities of the Republic of Moldova and the negotiating partners of the "5+2" format, to undertake all necessary actions in order to avoid the aggravation of the situation in the security zone and to ensure a productive dialogue aiming at finding exclusively peaceful solutions to the frozen conflict.
