07:00. President of Moldova demanded from Rashists to get out of Pridnestrovie
President of Moldova Maya Sandu, speaking in the European Parliament, she demanded to withdraw the Russian military from Transnistria.
The Moldovan President stressed that at present there is no immediate threat that the country will be drawn into the war in Ukraine (point.md, UNIAN). Sandu reminded that Moldova is a neutral country:
“Although, in order to truly be neutral, it is necessary to withdraw Russian troops from our territory. Because their presence fundamentally violates our neutral status and independence.
The Transnistrian conflict is one of the many challenges for Moldova. We are determined to resolve this issue peacefully while preserving the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Moldova. We do not want war or destabilization.
Russia attacked a neighboring state, as countries did in the past, and plunged the peoples of Ukraine and the entire European continent into boundless tragedy. They wanted to turn Ukraine into something no one else wants to be—a geopolitical appendage of a stronger neighbor. We all hoped and waited that those times would never return. But they are back.”
Maia Sandu stressed that Moldova supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine: “Crimea is Ukraine, Donbass is Ukraine, Kyiv is Ukraine, and will always be Ukraine.”

02:10. Kuleba explained that Ukraine will consider victory in the war against Russia
Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba believes that the outcome of the war for Ukraine should be the liberation of the occupied territories and the payment of compensation by Russia:
“Victory is the liberation of the occupied territories, including Crimea and Donbass. Payment of reparations. Condemnation of war criminals and those who committed crimes against humanity. Consolidation of Ukraine’s place in European integration. These are the four elements that for me are essential components of victory.
Every war ends with diplomacy, and in any case there will be negotiations with Russia. We will have to overcome many emotions after all the crimes committed by Russia, but if there is a chance to end the war and liberate the occupied territories, we are ready to sit down with the Russians at the negotiating table.”
