Operational activity of the power plant 2 from Dnestrovsk will endanger the water supply of Moldova due to the major pollution of Nistru river.

Member of Parliament, ex-Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources, Violeta Ivanov, declared on Tuesday, within a press conference, that operational activity “will have a negative impact on the economic situation in the area, and will have the impact of economic diminishment in this area as well“.

According to the MP, this activity puts Moldovan people at great risk, who, in great extent, use the Nistru’s water for drinking. “The underground waters are insufficient for Moldova to ensure population with drinking water, therefore this river is important for drinking water supply and for agricultural development as well“, said Ivanov.

Ex-Minister of Ecology underlined that within the framework of the negotiations, conducted earlier between the Moldovan and Ukrainian Governments, there was conditioned that Moldova would not recognize Ukrainian ownership over the power plant from Dnestrovsk till a comprehensive environmental study would be submitted in this respect. “Within the intergovernmental negotiations between Moldova and Ukraine, the Ukrainian side committed itself  to submit to Moldova the assessment study of the environmental impact the operation of this power plant may have“, said Ivanov.

“Ukraine intends to install there one of the most powerful electrical generator in the world that will lead to a quicker degradation of the Nistru River“, announced Ivanov, mentioning that since Moldova recognises Ukrainian ownership over the power plant, situated on the territory of our country, the presentation of this study is not binding any more.

On 1 February, within his visit to Kyev, Vladimir Filat signed with his Ukrainian counterpart, Iulia Timosenco, the protocol between the Moldovan and Ukrainian Governments concerning amendment to the Moldovan-Ukrainian Intergovernmental Agreement on recognising the ownership. On Thursday, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Iurie Leanca, recognised that, in this case, it is about recognising Ukraine’s ownership over the power plant located on Moldovan territory. Thus, Vladimir Filat recognised Ukrainian ownership for the power plant before the border between Moldova and Ukraine has been marked on this border segment.
