Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Moldova's breakaway republic of Transdnestr will seek independence from Moldova, if the Kosovo issue is resolved in favor of Albanian separatists, the Transdnestr parliament speaker said on Wednesday.

Transdnestr, a separatist republic with a large ethnic Russian population, proclaimed its independence from Moldova after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

"We see that a decision is being made under the UN aegis to transform Kosovo from a country with an indefinite status to a country governed by international law. We would like our Transdnestrian state to be recognized as well, if such a decision is made," Yevgeny Shevchuk said.
