Summary/Abstract: Lately, Transnistria has continued to exercise its role of „tension factor”, according to its political mission it was vested by Russia since the eve of the transnistrian armed confl ict of 1992. The administration from Tiraspol displays total „fi delity” towards any moves made by Russia in order to destabilize the situation, maintain the Republic of Moldova vulnerable and „under eastern influence”, even in terms of the banal problem of wine exports (RBC, 2006). In the region, more and more aggressive measures are resorted to in order to intimidate any social initiative of the population from that territory, a behavior typical to any ultra-centralized regime; as an example can be the ban laid by the local “authorities” to get fi nancial support, in any form and any kind of activity, by NGOs. The behavior and attitude of Tiraspol unveil its designation and the true aim5, which before the reaching the bi-lateral Agreement between the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine, on border securitization between the two, could be „disguised” by various speculations. Anyway, those 1966 economic units from Transnistria registered for getting the offi cial customs documents to legalize foreign trade transactions, for exporting produce on the European markets, are some results worthy of attention, but which do not cancel the problems to a great extent.
