The events of the end of August and the beginning of September 2010 in the Russian monarchical movement were connected to foreign relations of our country.
The Heir of the Throne Grand Duke Georgiy Mikhaylovich held the official visit to Transnistria. Transnistria is a little republic on the banks of Dniester River. The independence of the republic was proclaimed in 1990. It is recognised only by Abkhasia and South Ossetia, because of the official position of Moldova to force Transnistria to return under the sovereignty of Moldova. Two attempts of Moldova to force Transnistria to refuse from independency by use of armed forces in 1990 and 1992 were unsuccessful.
