Summary/Abstract: The end of the twentieth century was marked by dramatic changes on the ge¬opolitical ground, which was generated, first of all, by the USSR collapse. Political confrontations that accompanied the process of USSR collapse cau¬sed in the early 90’s violent conflicts at the periphery of the former Soviet em¬pire (in the Republic of Moldova, for example). The path pursued by the Re¬public of Moldova from 1992-2003 to settle its conflict was reduced to ne¬go¬tiations with the Transdniestrian separatist administration and to signing of a great number of documents with the participation of the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Organization for Se¬curity and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). After some events (for example, refusal of signing the “Kozak Memorandum”) the negotiation for¬mat was changed. Two new ne¬gotiator re¬presentatives of USA and European Union were involved in the process; they expres¬sed their own positions and interests, provided new visions. The Transdniestrian co¬nflict reached an international level and actually is has been dis¬cus¬sed within the Council of Europe, European Commission and other inter¬national bodies, which is significantly im¬portant in the po¬litics of conflict resolution.
