Moldova breakaway state requests to join Russia


Moldova’s breakaway Trans-Dniester region has submitted a plea to the Russian parliament to draft a law that would incorporate the territory into Russia, an official says.

Speaker of the Supreme Council of the Trans-Dniester Moldovan Republic, Mikhail Burla, forwarded the appeal to Russian State Duma Chairman Sergei Naryshkin, considering absorbing the territory to the Russian Federation, Russia’s newspaper Vedomosti reported.

Burla called on Russian lawmakers to expand legislation on Crimea’s absorption to cover Moldova’s Trans-Dniester region.

First Crimea, now Moldova – Who next ?
