The contradiction was as follows: the list of the border crossing points to operate joint Moldavian-Ukrainian control indicated in the Moldavian Regulation  of 30.08.2001 did not conform with the list of the border crossing points determined by international agreement of 11.03.1997. 
1. the Regulation of the Government of the Republic of Moldova of 30.08.2001 №904 contradicts the international agreement between the Government of the Ukraine and the Government of the Republic of Moldova “On organization of joint control at the border crossing points through the Ukrainian- Moldavian state border” of 11.03.1997 because it determines those border crossing points for operating joint control, which are not specified by international agreement.
2. the information, presented by Moldavian side in Moscow 13.09.2001 during the meeting of the Council of the Heads of the Customs Services of the CIS member-countries about withdrawal from circulation of customs seals of Transdniestria as old customs seals of the Republic of Moldova could not have juridical consequences for termination of implementation of the Agreement of 07.02.1996 stipulated the competence of Transdniestrian Moldavian Republic to carry out independently customs clearance of Transdniestrian cargoes.
In the conclusion it is necessary to note that the controversial questions of the establishment of the legal status of the customs activity of Transdniestrian region must be undoubtedly solved. However, haste, rashness and above all – juridical illiteracy in these situations cannot facilitate the completion of the process. Therefore the historical experience of trials and errors when making the qualified decisions on juridical collisions is seemed to be useful to specialists.
