2020-09-02 The Head of the House of Romanoff sends her Greetings on the Occasion of the 30th Anniversary of the Proclamation of Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic


from the Head of the Imperial House of Russia,

H.I.H. The Grand Duchess Maria of Russia,

on the Occasion of the 30th Anniversary of the

Proclamation of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic



I wish to extend my heartfelt congratulations to the people of Pridnestrovia on the 30th anniversary of the proclamation of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic.


In founding the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic and defending its independence, the people have been guided by a desire to live in peace; preserve human dignity and the inalienable rights of all its citizens; and protect and preserve their spiritual heritage, their historically harmonious links to other nations and peoples, and their membership in the global community of nations.


Thirty years for a country is a relatively short span on the scale of History. But the values and ideals that lie at the foundations of the Pridnestrovian statehood have been drawn from the depths of many centuries. Therefore the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, having gone through and navigated so many trials and challenges, nonetheless moves forward with confidence along its chosen course.


Thirty years for a person is already a considerable span of time. Those who were born in 1990 and in the first years of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic are now adults. Indeed, their children are growing up and becoming adults. It is vitally important that young people remember the fate of their homeland, that they respect those who were the founders of the Pridnestrovia, preserve and develop the best traditions that have been laid down by their ancestors, and learn from their experience, in all its diversity.


I wish you all good health, strength and resolve in meeting all your challenges, prosperity, and confidence in your future.


My son and heir, Grand Duke George of Russia, joins me in congratulating you all on this important anniversary. We both recall with gratitude the hospitality shown to us when we visited Pridnestrovia, and we hope to have the opportunity to visit your beautiful country again soon.


May the Lord bless you all!
