Ukraine might assist Moldova in seeking the middle ground on the Transnistria-related issues. Igor Dodon, the temporarily dismissed Moldovan president said that in his interview with Radio Liberty

'Kyiv is a crucial partner in the 5+2 negotiation format, and it was very active in this regard. A lot will depend on Ukraine's position, of course,' he said.

Since his inauguration, Dodon had no official contacts with his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko. 'All in good time', he said, answering the question when the two leaders could meet.

In early January, the Constitution Court temporarily dismissed Dodon from his office due to his refusal to release the law on forbidding Russian news.

Transnistria or the Pridnestrovian Moldovan Republic (PMR) is a landlocked self-proclaimed state situated in the geographical region of Transnistria between Ukraine and the River Dniester, recognized only by the other self-proclaimed states of Abkhazia, Republic of Artsakh and South Ossetia. The region is considered by the UN to be part of Moldova. The PMR controls a narrow strip of territory to the east of the River Dniester, and also the city of Bender and its surrounding localities on the west bank, in the historical region of  Bessarabia. Transnistria is designated by the Republic of Moldova as the autonomous territorial unit with special legal status.

Ukraine has been supporting a peaceful solution to the conflict by means of peaceful negotiations that are based on Moldova's territorial integrity.
