Moldova will resume railroad traffic to and from Russia via the Dniester region on December 15
Moldova will resume railroad traffic to and from Russia via the Dniester region on December 15, Transport and Roads Management Minister Miron Gagauz said on Tuesday. Passenger train 65/66 will start making shuttle trips between Moscow and Chisinau via Tiraspol and Bendery in accordance with a Russian-Moldovan protocol. Railroad traffic will also fully resume through a Moldovan-Ukrainian border checkpoint. Passenger train 47/48 will be using that route. The agreement will be in effect until December 31, 2007. Moldovan passenger and cargo trains started detouring the Dniester region in March, when Ukraine enacted new customs rules for the unrecognized republic by the Chisinau request. Tiraspol said it was an economic blockade. As a result, the traveling time doubled and Chisinau, Tiraspol, Russia, Ukraine and other CIS countries suffered multi-million losses. Kiev stopped the traffic of Moldovan trains through Mogilyov under the pretext of repairs and demanded to reopen the Dniester route when the Viktor Yanukovich Cabinet was formed. Ukraine, Russia and other CIS countries began transit cargo shipments through the Dniester region on September 8. Soon after Moscow cancelled detouring trains to Chisinau “for systematic violations of the traffic schedule and failures of railroad services” and demanded to reopen the Tiraspol route for passengers.
