Transnistria is located between Moldova and Ukraine. After 28 years, the conflict remains unresolved. Transnistria is a geopolitical conflict, not an ethnic one. This conflict is called (Frozen). Russia and the European Union are two important players in the Transnistrian conflict resolution process. Since 2003, the will of the EU has been to play an active role in Transnistria conflict resolution, and since 2005 the 5 + 2 talks have begun. The EU's most important policy in the region is the EaP, which is part of the ENP. This means that conflict resolution is driven by indirect tools, and therefore not very successful. All things considered, the question arises as to why, despite the efforts of the EU, the Transnistrian conflict remains frozen and there is no clear prospect of resolving it. This article hypothesized Transnistria is part of Russia's regional security complex & the intricacies of the complex and its intersection with the security complex proposed in the EaP do not allow the EU to resolve the conflict.
