Transnistria leader to CoE Human Rights Commissioner: Violations of human rights are practically nonexistent

On October 12th, the Council of Europe’s Human Rights Commissioner, Nils Muiznieks, paid a visit to Moldova’s breakaway region, Transnistria, and had in Tiraspol a discussion with the local president, Vadim Krasnoselsky. The main focus of the talks was obviously the respect for human rights in the region.

Despite several reports of HR violations, Krasnoselsky claimed that violations are almost nonexistent in the so-called Pridnestrovian Moldovan Republic:

“In (our) state, everyone is subordinate to the law- from President to the regular citizen,- the cases of human rights violations are practically excluded”, a press release of the presidency quotes Krasnoselsky.

Suspecting that the Chișinău authorities might have told Muiznieks something different, Krasnoselsky invited him to ask questions about any moments concerning the Moldovan party.

In his turn, the Commissioner showed interest towards the situation of human rights in the Transnistrian prisons and about the domestic violence cases. Muiznieks also drew attention to the rights of people with disabilities and the opportunity to involve them in the education system.

Citizens complained over 70 times to the European Court of Human Rights because of human rights violations in the Transnistrian region. The responsibility is often delegated to the Republic of Moldova, who de-jure should control the region, and the Russian Federation, who de-facto has indirect but huge influence in the separatist republic politics and policy-making.

Moldova ranked 62nd out of 130 in the Human Capital Index

The Republic of Moldova was placed on the 62nd place (out of 130) in the Human Capital Index published by the World Economic Forum. It received the general score of 62,29, situated above the average.

The highest score was attained at the Capacity level- 72,2 (52nd place)-, because of the above-average literacy and numeracy rate, as well as the secondary education attainment rate- up to 82,4% in the 25-54 age group.

The Deployment scored at 64,5 (72nd place) because of low labor force participation rate (56,8% for 25-54 age group), no significant employment gender gaps (lowest ration of employed women to men- 0,69) and relatively low unemployment and underemployment rates.

In terms of Development of Human Capital, Moldova excels at enrollment rates for primary and secondary education but shows lack of quality of primary schools. Surprisingly for Moldova, the graduates of Moldovan tertiary and vocational education seem to reach a certain level of skill diversity, but still under the global average- scored 88, but ranked 74th.

Speaking of know-how, Moldova does not have high-skilled employment share (19,1%- 73rd place), compared to the medium-skilled employment share- 91,6%. Moreover, looking at the complexity of exported goods, Moldova’s economic complexity scores low (48 points), somewhere between Vietnam and Mauritius.

Nonetheless, the Human Capital Index reveals some other features of the Moldovan human capital:

  • 7,5% of the GDP is spent on education;
  • 33,6% of the working-age population is covered by the pension scheme;
  • an average worker has a yearly output of $12279;
  • 27,8% of young people are not in employment, education or training;
  • the labor force participation rate is 43,3%;
  • the unemployment rate is 4,1% etc.
