The Liberal Party also yesterday condemned participation of Russian troops in the Victory Parade in Tiraspol on May 9. The political force noted that the authorities of the breakaway republic ignored protest of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration against the participation of the Russian task force in the Victory Day celebrations in Transnistria.


"The Russian troops marched along the streets of Tiraspol while Igor Dodon was having fun at a military parade in Moscow and drinking champagne with Vladimir Putin," the statement reads.

According to the liberals, such actions are contrary to the international obligations undertaken by Russia. "We appeal to the relevant Moldovan agencies to initiate a criminal investigation and bring to justice those responsible for violating the sovereignty of the Republic of Moldova, including Igor Dodon - for high treason," the left-wingers said.
