On 2 June 1990, the First Congress of Dniestr Peoples’ Deputies at all levels voted in favour of the establishment of a Dniestr free economic zone and appealed to Chisinau to address the issue.
This decision was balanced by an appeal to the Moldovan authorities to reconsider a number of legal acts which were deemed detrimental to the national minorities in the republic.
The stated aim of the law was to ‘secure the preservation, development and expression of the ethnic, cultural, linguistic, and religious distinctiveness of the region’s population.’ The meeting between Snegur and Smirnov on 5 July 1995 was greeted with a certain measure of optimism, but did not lead to a political breakthrough.

He has received threatening phone calls: "You can end up in the Dniestr." Yet on closer questioning it emerges that what Radchenko, a stocky former political commissar in the Red Army, would really like is less a "return to Europe" than a return to the Soviet Union.

The image which David Thompson and PeterH seem to have of the personnel of EG D on guard duty along the Dniestr kicking their heels in frustration while waiting to get their hands on some Jews to kill is quite mistaken.
My words "the personnel of EG D on guard duty along the Dniestr kicking their heels in frustration while waiting to get their hands on some Jews to kill" is simply a more poetic formulation of what Peter H and David Thompson were inferring.
The fact is that doing guard duty on the Dniestr gave EG D more opportunity to kill Jews, as the Romanians drove them over the bridges, rather than reducing their kills.

The plan was a fall back plan in case it was impossible to defend Polish boders and assumed that the Polish forces would be able to retreat to the area, organise a successful defence until the winter, and hold out until the promised French offensive on the Western Front started.
Rydz-Śmigły predicted that the rough terrain, valleys, Stryj and Dniestr rivers, hills and swamps would provide natural lines of defences against the German blitzkrieg.
The area was also home to many munitions depots (that were prepared for the third wave of Polish troops) and was strongly linked to ports in Romania (Constanca), which could be used to resupply the Polish troops.
