Andrei Ivantoc's and Tudor Petrov-Popa's cases mentioned at a session of the UN General Assembly on human rights

Moldova's ambassador to the United Nations, Alexei Tulbure called on the international community to fight human rights abuses in frozen conflicts in the former Soviet Union. Speaking at a session of the UN General Assembly on human rights, Tulbure singled out from the numerous violations taking place in Moldova's breakaway Transdniester region, the case of two members of the "Ilascu group," Andrei Ivantoc and Tudor Petrov-Popa, imprisoned in Transdniester on terrorism charges since 1993. In 2004, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled that the two should be released. Tulbure further stressed "Russia's direct responsibility for the nonfulfillment of the ECHR decision in its capacity of a country that offers political, military, and financial support to the Tiraspol separatist regime."
