Tiraspol: military parade at the celebration of secession anniversary

Moldova's breakaway region of Transdniester on 2 September celebrated the 15th anniversary of its secession from the Moldovan Soviet Socialist Republic with a military parade. Invited for the celebrations Russian State Duma Deputy Chairman Sergei Baburin said in Tiraspol that "Transdniester has highlighted not the Soviet epoch's drawbacks, but its merits and advantages".

Another guest, Konstantin Zatulin, director of Russia's Institute for CIS Studies, said that “it is pointless to harp for 15 years on the unrecognized nature of states like Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Nagorno-Karabakh and Transdniester which are the reality of the former Soviet area".
