OSCE Mission to Moldova
Who we are
The OSCE established the Mission to Moldova in February 1993 with a mandate to help find a peaceful solution to the conflict between the country’s central government and the breakaway region of Transdniestria. The Mission has its base in Chisinau and maintains a branch office in Tiraspol and an office in Bender. It is led by Ambassador Michael Scanlan from the United States and has a total staff of 52, of which 13 are international and 39 local personnel. The Mission’s budget for 2013 is EUR 2,125,200.
