CPRF leader condemns murder of his Transnistria counterpart

Moscow, Jul 17 (Prensa Latina) Gennady Zyuganov, leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPFR), denounced Monday the murder of his Transnistria colleague, Oleg Khorzhan.

According to Zyuganov’s statement on the official website of the CPFR, the president of the Communist Party of Transnistria was the victim of a murder in his house this Monday. Therefore, the Russian communists demand an immediate investigation by the competent authorities.

On July 9, Khorzhan signed a joint declaration with Moldova’s non-parliamentary opposition party, Civic Congress, on the struggle for the rights and freedoms of the residents of both banks of the Dniester River.

Transnistria, where 60 percent of the population is Russian and Ukrainian, sought secession from Moldova even before the collapse of the Soviet Union, that Moldova would join Romania in a wave of nationalism.
