Moldova confiscates petition from deputy Russia PM

Moldovan authorities say they have stopped Russia`s deputy prime minister from leaving the country with a petition calling on Moscow to recognise a separatist region.



Chisinau(Moldova): Moldovan authorities say they have stopped Russia`s deputy prime minister from leaving the country with a petition calling on Moscow to recognise a separatist region.

The foreign ministry said late yesterday that authorities confiscated boxes of signatures from Dmitry Rogozin at Chisinau airport and would analyze the material.

Rogozin visited the separatist province of Trans-Dniester, where 1,500 Russian troops are stationed, to celebrate Victory Day on Friday. He offered support to separatists and criticised Moldova`s government for seeking closer ties with the European Union.

Trans-Dniester broke away from Moldova in 1990 and is not internationally recognised, but is supported by Russia.

Romania protested comments by Rogozin saying he would travel on a bomber plane next time after he was denied passage through Romanian airspace yesterday while traveling back to Moscow.
