Transdnestr Talks Renewed

CHISINAU, Moldova — Moldova's prime minister and the new leader of the rebel Transdnestr region agreed Friday to increase contacts between their populations and improve cross-border trading and telephone links. Transdnestr leader Yevgeny Shevchuk and Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat emerged from talks in the Ukrainian port city of Odessa on Friday to say they were satisfied with their first contact — though they had avoided talking about the presence of several hundreds of Russian peacekeepers.

He said the two sides would get down to tackling economic problems such as truck movements across the border and establishing better telephone links.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
