ECtHR: Russia guilty of ill-treatment, poor detention conditions of 5 Moldova policemen in Transnistria

Published

on

17 July 2018- Russia was found guilty by the ECtHR of ill-treatment and poor detention conditions of five Moldova police officers. The five police officers had been detained in 2006 by the authorities of the so-called “Pridnestrovian Moldovan Republic”. (Judgment 50157/06 from 17/07/2018)
The police officers were reportedly forced to confess that they intended to kidnap politicians and other persons from the region while actually conducting an investigation in Tiraspol.

During the detention, officer Mangîr was allegedly beaten up and injected with an unknown substance which made him stay unconscious for 4 days. His internment in Moldova’s MAI hospital after the release had “concussion” as the cause. Officers Pohila, Dațco, Vasiliev were beaten and threatened with the killing of family members, as well with being transferred to cells occupied by common criminals. Officer Condrea was subjected to “Palestinian hanging” for up to 7 hours, being taken unconscious to the cell.

Russia was found to be exercising “effective control” in the region, “by virtue of its continued military, economic and political support” for separatists. Russia will have to pay approximately 93 thousand euros to Mangîr and his fellow policemen for damage and expenses. Accordingly, “Moldova had taken all the measures in its power” to ensure respect for individual applicants’ rights. Thus, it was not found guilty of violating the rights of the applicants.

Transnistrian Minister of Foreign Affairs: There were many delusions that the conflict between Moldova and Transnistria is very easy to resolve

Published

on

The head of the Transnistrian diplomatic mission told about what is slowing down the negotiation process.

The First Transnistrian TV channel took an interview from the Transnistrian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Vitaly Ignatiev, who claims that the Transnistrian side is trying to focus on concrete matters, on a specific agenda within the conflict negotiation process.

Ignatiev drew attention to the fact that the position of President Vadim Krasnoselsky, who previously declared that it makes no sense to meet with Moldovan counterparts without a specific agenda, is connected with this.

According to him, over the years of the negotiation formats on the Moldovan-Transnistrian settlement, various visions, plans or approaches that took place, there were many delusions that the conflict was very easy to resolve.

However, the Transnistrian diplomat refuses to recognize Transnistria as part of Moldova.

“We have absolutely legitimate international legal, historical grounds for recognizing the independence of Transnistria. We have a generation of Transnistrians who have not lived a single day in the Soviet Moldova. Any settlement should be based on the will of the people. We rely on the will of the population, which has already determined its fate within referendums,” the minister added.

He stated that Transnistria lives in accordance with its Constitution, and Moldova, in turn, lives within its legislative space.

“There is not a single signal about the eagerness of the Moldovan authorities to deal with these issues seriously, although there are a lot of statements about the issue. Sometimes these statements create an unnecessary background and interfere with the dialogue,” the diplomat concluded.

Transnistrian president Krasnoselsky: Discussing issues with the Moldovan president is impractical at the moment.

Published

Recently, the president of Moldova, Igor Dodon has made an announcement that, in December, there is a scheduled meeting with the President of Transnistria, Vadim Krasnoselsky.

The event will take place in Bender, writes the Transnistrian news portal novostiprm.com.

However, the according to the separatist press, Krasnoselsky made it clear that there will be no meeting “just for the sake of meeting”, affirming that there are enough unresolved issues and problems on the negotiation agenda.

“A clear agenda is necessary, and I don’t see it the moment. Those 5 + 2 questions format do not correspond to his competences. Furthermore, in principle, discussing these issues with Igor Dodon is impractical. The president of Moldova should have his own agenda,” declared the president of Transnistria.

The House of Culture of a Transnistrian village has been renovated with European money

After a long time, the inhabitants of the village of Carmanova on the left bank of the Nistru celebrated the patronage of the House of Culture. It’s been built in 1970 and has never been repaired. In the nineties, the heating system was completely damaged. For the first time in 28 years, during the cold season, the holidays will be organized under appropriate conditions. The edifice was connected to the water supply, sewage and is equipped with a modern heating system.

“The village of Carmanova was founded 200 years ago by Germans, mostly from Germany and France (Alsace), as well as families from Poland and Hungary. The first name of the locality is Neudorf. Renovation of the cultural house in this village is of particular importance to the European Union and the Member States: it is a symbol of the common history with this territory and its locals and proof that this common history continues daily, including through the effort to improve conditions for the local population,” said Fabien Schaeffer, project manager within the European Union Delegation in the Republic of Moldova.

“Due to the constant temperature, paintings, costumes, and other items are kept under proper conditions. We have ten creative teams. We work in kinusayga techniques, “sand art”, and more. Dance, singing, and concerts will take place in comfortable conditions,” declared Natalia Stoian, head of the House of Culture.

The European Union has allocated EUR 150,795 for the renovation of the building. Carmanova House of Culture is one of over 80 infrastructure objects renovated through the European Union-funded “Support to Confidence Building Measures” program implemented by UNDP Moldova – a program which contributes to the consolidation of trust between the inhabitants of both sides of the Dniester River through their involvement in joint projects.
