Arestovich noted that since it is a territory that belonged to the extinct Soviet Moldova, authorities in Chisinau should request Ukrainia’s support, journalist Mark Feiguin’s YouTube channel reported on Wednesday.
Referring to these statements, Russian Spokesman Dmitry Peskov warned that this is something very much like a provocation.
Earlier, a series of explosions occurred in Tiraspol, the capital of Transnistria, in the building of the State Security Ministry of the self-proclaimed Republic of Transdniester.
Later, in the town of Maiac, about seven kilometers from the Ukrainian border, two consecutive explosions knocked down two radio antennas relaying signals from Russian and other broadcasters.
Transdniester’s President Vadim Krasnoselski decreed a terrorist red alert for 15 days.
On Wednesday, the Interior Ministry of the self-proclaimed republic of Transdniester confirmed that shots were fired from the Ukrainian side at the town of Cobasna, which still houses one of the largest arms and ammunition depots in Europe.
