The government of non-recognized Transnistria will not be able to open its own diplomatic office in Ukraine since Transnistria is an integer part of the Republic of Moldova. Kateryna Zelenko, the press secretary of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reported that as quoted by Ukrinform news agency.
'Ukraine already has the diplomatic representative office, the Embassy of the Republic of Moldova. Transnistria is a part of Moldova, and Ukraine, as the guarantor country, will continue to pay efforts to contribute to the solution of the Transnistrian issue', she said.
Previously, Vadim Krasnoselskiy, the leader of the self-styled PMR (the Pridnestrovian Moldovan Republic, - 112 International) said that the representative office of this breakaway state could appear in Kyiv. Such office is already working in Moscow; however, due to the international misrecognition, it has no status of either a consulate or the embassy; it acts merely as an NGO.
Transnistria is an internationally non-recognized breakaway state. In the 1990s, amidst the fall of the USSR, its local leaders decided to split up with Moldova. This issue still has not been resolved, as no UN member state recognize Transnistria's independence.
