So, according to V.Jushchenko`s plan, after replacement in region of the Russian military men European, already new structure of the Supreme body of Dnestr region will cancel a post of the president. If it turns out, to the main enemy V.Voronina - to the leader of Dnestr region Igor Smirnovu there will be nothing of other how to run to Russia.
considering that in Dnestr region, as well as in its Supreme body, much (in region third of population is made by Ukrainians and in the same proportion - Russian and Moldavians), it is possible to assume ethnic Ukrainians that velvet revolution here will take place.

Elections in the Supreme body of Dnestr region according to the international standards.
