Transnistria's independence - an idea supported by only 4% of Moldovans

According to an opinion poll published on August 21, just 4 percent of Moldova's population believe the country's secessionist region, Transnistria, should be granted independence. 65 percent of Moldovans want Transnistria, which seceded in 1992, to be fully reintegrated into Moldova.

The poll, which was conducted by the the Chisinau Institute of Marketing and Polls IMAS as part of its Political and Social Barometer program, found that 12 percent believe Transnistria should be granted autonomous status and 7 percent believe a federation is the solution.

Nearly one-third believe Russia is capable of settling the conflict; 23 percent believe that the conflict is solvable with the help of the European Union.
