Dodon noted that Moldovan producers faced additional costs because of the need to bypass Ukraine in response to Russia’s ban on the import of transit goods from Ukraine imposed from January 1. Dodon has already complained to Putin that the document signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev was detrimental to Moldova.
Apart from trade problems, the Moldovan President said he discussed with Putin economic and humanitarian cooperation between their countries and Transnistria. He noted that he is happy to start his international visits with Russia this year.
“It shows a good level of dialogue between our countries. It confirms that our strategic partnership will continue to develop,” he concluded. ■
