In turn, Prime Minister of Moldova called statements about the “blockade” of Transnistria by Ukraine and Moldova speculation.

“It is strange to hear all sorts of speculation about the so-called blockade of Transnistria from the Moldovan and Ukrainian authorities. We need to look at what the export of its products to Ukraine, for example, in 2015-2016 amounted to nearly $10 million from this territory, and 60% of the total exports from the region was in the EU”, – said Pavel Filip.

He also added that such exports to the EU may not like the “leaders” of Transnistria.
