Ukraine has proposed a "peace plan" to resolve Moldova's Transdniester problem. The Ukrainian proposal -- which is supported by the US-- is based on holding a democratic election in Transdniester. Ukraine says Russua, the US, the EU, and the OSCE would sponsor the elections. Russian forces in Transdniester would be withdrawn and be replaced by international observers. This is a good idea and Ukraine's recent experience gives it political credibility.
