In the last national elections on April 5, a group of Transdniestrians blocked the entrance to the polling station in Corjova, too.

In the last national elections on April 5, a group of Transdniestrians blocked the entrance to the polling station in Corjova, too.

One of the gems from RFE/RL's Moldovan Service that emerged during the voting today came from President Vladimir Voronin's birthplace of Corjova.

Corjova lies just on the "Transdniestrian side" of the Dniester River and is nominally under Moldovan jurisdiction but is in fact controlled by separatist militias.

Voronin has had to negotiate with separatists whenever he wanted to visit his hometown, including to attend his mother's funeral.

The Central Electoral Commission announced "blocked access" to the voting booths in Corjova today, so voters were told to use polling stations in two neighboring towns.
