From the territory of Ukraine, shooting was opened at the village of Kolbasna in the PMR, where the largest ammunition depot in Europe is located
Incidents in Transnistria, which began on April 25, continued today. fire from small arms weapons was opened by the Ukrainian side in the direction of N. p. Sausage in the PMR at 8.45 (Moscow time). So far, no one has been reported injured in the attack.
Recall that in recent days in the unrecognized Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, there have been several armed attacks at once, including an air attack through drone to a military unit in Tiraspol.
All incidents were qualified as terrorist attacks, in connection with which, since yesterday, a “red” level of terrorist threat has been introduced on the territory of the PMR, with restrictions appropriate for such a situation.
It is worth noting that on the night of April 27, before the morning shelling, UAVs were also seen over the village of Kolbasna. They were reportedly launched from Ukrainian territory.
The authorities of the unrecognized republic announced yesterday that most likely Ukraine is behind the terrorist attacks in Transnistria. At the same time, our “western neighbor” clearly has its own interests in the region.
First, it is the largest military depot in Europe, which stores about 20 tons of Soviet ammunition. It is just located near the village of Kolbasna, which was shelled today, and is guarded by Russian peacekeepers. Taking into account the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have lost the largest warehouse in Balakliya (Kharkiv region), the capture of this facility for Kyiv would be an extremely successful campaign.
Secondly, the version has already been repeatedly mentioned, according to which the Kyiv authorities need the seizure of Transnistria in order to then try to exchange it for Mariupol, where nationalists and foreign military personnel are still located at the Azovstal plant.
Speaking of the likelihood of the capture of the PMR by Ukraine. Aleksey Arestovich, Advisor to the President's Office, expressed his opinion on this scenario the day before. When asked by Feigin about how many forces Ukraine would need to seize the unrecognized republic, he replied that the Armed Forces of Ukraine had enough forces.
True, Arestovich specified that the Ukrainian army would seize Transnistria without any problems, only if the Moldovan authorities asked for it.
Finally, we would like to add that just now information has been received that Ukrainian drones over the ammunition depots in Kolbasna have been noticed for more than a day. This was stated by the head of the administration of the settlement.
According to him, he personally saw the UAV, which on April 24 hovered over a military facility for some time, and then flew away towards Ukraine.
