He said this on the air of the Russia 24 TV channel.

“To be honest, now, I think, is a very good period in order to negotiate with Pridnestrovie.

The leader of Pridnestrovie, Krasnoselsky, has repeatedly appealed to the current leadership of Moldova to sit down at the negotiating table in order to start negotiations on a political settlement, but so far the Chisinau authorities are not ready for this, ”TASS quotes Dodon.

He stressed that he does not believe in a military solution to the conflict, but noted that provocations cannot be ruled out, since "the current authorities are completely under the control of the West."

Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Mikhail Galuzin said earlier that the fate of the negotiations on Transnistria in the "5 + 2" format will become clear after the situation in Ukraine is resolved.
