Ukraine Makes Overture To Moldova
Ukraine has stated that it is willing to open up a corridor between Transnistira, the disputed region of Moldova, and the Russian border, which would allow Russia to withdraw its troops.
Russia was to withdraw troops from Moldova two decades ago, but still keeps a small “peacekeeping” force in Transnistira despite Moscow’s agreement to withdraw them and Moldova’s demand that they be pulled out.
