A Certain Distance from Russia

New Conditions for Transnistria

26 August 2020

Transnistria has now much more room for manoeuvre in its relations with Russia. This does not mean, however, that it has become closer to the European Union.

In mid-April 2020, the heads of all factions of the Russian State Duma made an appeal to the authorities of unrecognised Transnistria to release Oleg Khorzhan, the leader of the local Communist Party.

The initiator of the action was Gennady Zyuganov, the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, who has maintained close relations with communists from the separatist republic for years.

Khorzhan, despite his relatively young age, can be considered a veteran of the Transnistrian political scene. In 2016 the full power in the separatist republic was taken over by the camp led by the Sheriff company.
