Military Review

Ukrainian observer assessed the combat capability of the Pridnestrovian army

32

The topic of the threat to the southern borders from the PMR has been repeatedly raised in the Ukrainian media since 2014. Analytical forecasts pointed to the danger emanating from Transnistria in the direction of Odessa or Vinnitsa region.


In this regard, the observer of the Ukrainian portal "Military", writing under the pseudonym Ts.Dnestrovsky, tried to analyze the current state of the Armed Forces of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic.

In Ukraine, the combat capability of the Transnistrian army was assessed.

The largest and most combat-ready grouping of the PMR Armed Forces is located in the south of the republic, where it covers the urban agglomeration of Bendery-Parkany-Tiraspol. Two of the four motorized rifle brigades are located there, as well as other military units. The concentration of significant forces in a relatively small area is explained by the fact that the military-political leadership of the republic, the central executive and legislative authorities are located in Tiraspol.

This unrecognized state has a mixed system of staffing the Armed Forces. The call is for one year. For conscripts, except for daily orders, the service begins at 8 am and ends at 18-19 pm, after which they go home.


The course of a young fighter lasts 12 days, which causes the author to have great doubts about the level of training of Pridnestrovian conscripts. He also pays attention. That in the PMR, even in the army special forces and reconnaissance battalions, conscripts serve.

On the other hand, the Ukrainian observer highly appreciates the combat capabilities of the Dniester SOBR, which is subordinate to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and, in his opinion, is the most combat-ready unit of Transnistria. Its tasks include countering terrorism, criminal groups and the defense of the republic. Special forces subordinate to the MGB "Delta" are also highlighted, which they consider to be an analogue of the Ukrainian center of special operations "A".

The observer suggests that both units took part in hostilities outside the PMR, in particular, in Abkhazia.

The author concludes that although the army of Transnistria does not pose a danger to Ukraine, it (Ukraine) still has to divert part of its forces to control the situation near the borders of the unrecognized republic.

    Hmm ... In Soviet times, only conscripts served in special forces, except for commanders from officers and ensigns, and put any enemy in the pose of a pooping shrimp.

        Not forelocks but sidelocks! Ukrainians have forelocks, Jews have sidelocks. The planned replacement of one Svido-Jewish President Zelensky will begin. on another Jewish President Valtsman .. on an emergency basis .. Omeriga tensed in her thought process and this is the result of their brainstorming. It is expected that in this way the discontent of the people living on the territory of SvidouukraYna will be extinguished ... Change of awl, for soap .. the result, the steam of discontent will be blown out into the whistle. hi

            ... You forgot how the Nazis destroyed the Jews and Slavs. It is you who needs to stir up hatred and nationalism again. You rush about with your stupid exclusivity like a fool with a sack. Allegedly, the superiority of the Jewish people over the peoples of the world, De exceptionally smart and exceptionally elected .. ... multiply stupidity after stupidity ... It's time to grow up already.

    Alignment with the most super-superarmy of Europe is, of course, cool. Only it is unlikely that in the PMR they are oriented at least for something Ukrainian.

      Our soldiers are standing in the PMR. And if any provocations begin and affect our people, no one will look at either NATO or Ukraine. We'll just break everyone and everything. Georgia showed everyone that it is fraught to touch our people.

        Well, they (sworn partners) have been working on this issue for a long time. Moldovans deport all arriving Russians who are fit for service. There are nothing left of the peacekeepers.
        I myself live in the PMR, so I’m thinking, if a mess happens, Russia will have to answer ..... and this is already an invasion of Ukraine ...

          After the signing of the Russian Federation in 1999, the Istanbul agreements on the withdrawal of our troops, incl. and from the PMR, ours there (excluding "MS") on "bird" rights .... so that there is not much to "work" on there .....
          And the "MS" from the Russian Federation is there until Moldova withdraws from the Agreement on the settlement of this conflict ....
          There are nothing left of the peacekeepers.

          So the locals serve there, having received the citizenship of the Russian Federation ....
          if a mess happens, Russia will have to answer .....

          will definitely have to...
          and this is an invasion of Ukraine ...

          optional ... with a dozen strikes on strategic facilities in Moldova and the Odessa region of Ukraine, and everything will end before it starts .....
          But the structure and strength of our Group of Forces there must be changed to the detriment of its combined arms component .....

        Sergei Andreevich Mylnikov, sergeant, hero of Russia, drove Georgians on a broken and unarmed tank. Cossacks and volunteers gave good pepper to the Moldavian warriors and Ukrainian volunteers in the previous war. Now, if they twitch, there will be neither Moldova nor Ukraine ...

              One of the leaders of the UNA-UNSO (approx. an organization banned in Russia) Igor Mazur-Topolya: “The main reason why we fought there is that this is Ukrainian land: there are entire villages of Ukrainians, schools, the Ukrainian language is considered one of the state in the PMR. And we thought that when there is a war just 100 km from our homes, Ukrainians are dying, and Kravchuk, as the President of Ukraine and the Ministry of Defense, are doing nothing, we must protect them. We then established normal relations with the Transnistrian authorities - they did not have any prejudice towards us, as in Russia. In total, about 400 of our people went through this war, and more than 60 of them were awarded medals "Defender of Transnistria". And those who were injured were given apartments in Tiraspol by the PMR authorities, they still live there with their families today, and we sometimes visit them.”

    I think there is no talk of offensive operations from the side of Transnistria. But we should think about the defense of the region in the event of encroachments of the "Kyiv partners".

      In the case of Transnistria, everything is simple - our peacekeepers are standing there and, in the event of an attack, Moldova will end, Bessarabia will begin, which will include all the surrounding lands ...

    If America decides to send Ukraine to the slaughter, they will definitely set fire to Transnistria at the same time, and there will obviously not be time for plans to attack Ukraine), at least to fight off the rest.

      Perhaps you are right .... but the former OdVO of the USSR Armed Forces included not only the 14th OA, for example, Crimea was also part of the military administrative unit of this district, where the AK was stationed (the current 126th brigade of the KChF RF, these are its remnants ), if you want to know what condition the military and military units of the PMR Armed Forces and the RF Armed Forces are in the PMR, look on YouTube for the footage of the military aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine being taken out of Crimea in 2014 and its condition ....
      Moldova and Ukraine imposed a blockade of the PMR neither today nor yesterday, so that the VT and B of our units (two SMEs - the remnants of the MRD stationed there under the Union and which was part of the 14th OA) are not updated, but are maintained in a combat-ready state in spite of everything. ...
      Due to the complexity of the rotation of l / s in our units in the Group of Forces and in the "MS", the PMR citizens who have taken Russian citizenship serve mainly .... even ammunition and uniforms for our units are sewn in the PMR ....
      Why do Ukrainians have the right to assess the state of military equipment and military equipment of the PMR Armed Forces, but because they are armed for the most part with the same military equipment, dating back to Soviet times ....

    Ukrainian observer assessed the combat capability of the Pridnestrovian army

    Any attack on Russian servicemen in Transnistria is an attack on Russia. In this case, Russia can strengthen them with the Airborne Forces with the support of aviation.
