The armed Moldovan aggressors in 1992 were opposed by inexperienced in military affairs, often unarmed defenders of the young republic, those who care about the fate of the Motherland. Military actions killed 804 people, hundreds of wounded, dozens of missing persons. However, the legal assessment of the events of the 1992 in Moldova was not given.
July 21, an agreement on the peaceful settlement of the conflict on the Dniester was signed in Moscow. With the introduction of the Russian contingent, military operations ceased. Peacekeepers in Pridnestrovie were greeted as heroes-liberators, with tears in their eyes. The President emphasized that the Russian soldier has managed to preserve peace in the republic all these years. Despite enormous pressure from the outside on the peacekeeping operation, the Pridnestrovians understand: peacekeepers and peace are one thing.
Chairman of the Republican Union of defenders of Pridnestrovie Vladimir Buchka addressed the relatives and friends of those who died, those who, in 1992 with weapons in their hands, fought for the right to live in their native land, the right to educate children in peace and harmony.
At the end of the meeting, representatives of the authorities and public organizations, relatives of the deceased, defenders of Pridnestrovie laid flowers to the memorial.
