Former Special Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office in Ukraine in the Tripartite Contact Group (TCG), Martin Sajdik does not exclude that the Donbas Conflict might be frozen as Transnistrian conflict for decades as Kommersant reported.
“I do not exclude it,” Sajdik said, answering the question on how likely it was that the conflict in Donbas would be frozen as Transnistrian one.
The Austrian diplomat noted that it is already frozen in some aspects.
“Transnistria uses the fact that it is considered as the part of Moldova. And all advantages of trade with EU spread on Transnistria also,” Sajdik added.
According to him, assimilation of Donbas to Transnistria is no good for both, Ukraine and Russia.
Sajdik belives that Russia, despite its statements, is the side of the conflict in Donbas and the Minsk Agreements should be fulfilled not consequently but in package.
Earlier we reported that President of France Emmanuel Macron decided not to wait for the solution of the conflict in Donbas and started rapprochement with Russia. He also explained the grounds of changing attitude toward President of Russia Vladimir Putin.
