Quote: "In general, we can say that there are some forces interested in destabilising the situation in the region, under the pretext of allegedly preparing Transnistria for an attack on Odesa. They are sowing panic and organising provocations, but the situation is being monitored and is under control."

Background:

  • Earlier on Friday, the so-called Ministry of State Security of unrecognised Transnistria claimed that a drone had supposedly attacked a military unit in the region.
  • The Moldovan Reintegration Bureau said that the competent authorities are analysing all the images and information that have emerged. It emphasised that a series of provocations are ongoing in the region. They are designed to sow panic and tension, and to draw attention to the region.
