She stated this in an interview with Radio Liberty

The elected President of Moldova, Maia Sandu, opposed a forceful solution to the conflict in Transnistria. She stated this in an interview with Radio Liberty. According to the politician, the settlement of the conflict must continue to be sought in the Bratislava Protocol format, "five plus two", and it must be political.

Transnistria is one of the self-proclaimed republics that emerged after the collapse of the USSR. In 1990, she proclaimed her independence, not recognized by the countries of the UN. After the escalation of the conflict in the region, hostilities began, which ended in 1992 with the introduction of Russian peacekeepers..

About 1,700 Russian servicemen are currently stationed in Transnistria. In November, after her election, Sandu advocated the withdrawal of Russian troops from the region and ruled out the federalization of Moldova. After Azerbaijan conducted a successful military operation in the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, politicians are asked about the possibility of a military solution to the conflict.President-elect of Moldova opposes the use of force to resolve the conflict in Transnistria In an interview with Radio Liberty, she stated that she saw no reason for the resumption of hostilities..

"With regard to the Transnistrian settlement, there are important principles on which we insist. First of all, it is the observance of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country. This is finding a solution only by peaceful means, diplomatic methods", – said Sandu, stressing that Moldova wants to maintain good relations with Russia. A Kremlin spokesman, commenting on Sandu’s proposal to withdraw the Russian military, said that this could destabilize the situation.
