A congress of "MPs" from all levels is set to convene on Feb. 28 in Tiraspol, Moldova (the capital of unrecognized Transnistria), to possibly appeal to Russia to "accept Transnistria into the Russian Federation,” said local oppositionist and activist Gennady Chorba, Moldovan Infotag private news agency reported on Feb. 21.

Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is scheduled to address the Federal Assembly in Moscow on Feb. 29 and could potentially announce his acceptance of the "MPs’’ request, Chorba said.

"Hence the recent statement by Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov that Moscow will not leave its citizens living in Transnistria in trouble," he said.

Chorba called on the "MPs" of the unrecognized republic not to allow the adoption of an appeal that would allow Putin to strike Moldova, including Transnistria, "under any pretext."
