The Ministry of Defense of Moldova denies the existence of military threats to Transnistria

Representatives of the Moldovan Ministry of Defense said they see no direct military threats to Transnistria, despite reports from the Russian military that Kyiv is planning an armed provocation against the unrecognized republic.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, as a pretext for invading the PMR, the militants of the Kyiv regime are planning to stage an alleged offensive of Russian troops from the territory of Transnistria. The department emphasized that they carefully monitor the situation in the border region, and also expressed their readiness to immediately respond to changes in the situation around Pridnestrovie.



The Moldovan Ministry of Defense noted that they are monitoring all the events, actions and changes taking place in the region and on the territory of Pridnestrovie and do not see any direct threats to the security of this region. The department also promised to immediately inform the public in case of military threats.

Currently, security in the Transnistrian conflict zone is maintained by a joint peacekeeping force, which includes 402 Russian, 492 Transnistrian and 355 Moldovan military personnel, as well as Ukrainian military observers.

The Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, whose majority of the population is ethnic Russians and Ukrainians, even before the collapse of the USSR, sought to secede from Moldova, fearing the likely accession of Moldova to Romania. In 1992, the Moldovan authorities attempted to forcefully resolve the situation, after which they actually lost control over this territory.

    Question:

    Wieso kann nicht auch Transnistrien einen Volksentscheid herbeiführen,
    indem die Bevölkerung in einer freien und unabhängigen Entscheidung
    ihren Willen bekundet, dass sie den Anschluss an Russland wünscht...?!?

      Am 17. September 2006 ist ein Referendum stattgefunden. Die Burger der Republik mussten zwei Fragen beantworten:
      Unterstützen Sie den Kurs zur Unabhängigkeit der PMR und den anschließenden freien Beitritt Pridnestrowiens zur Russischen Föderation?
      Ergebnis: 97,1% - "fur"
      This is an answer to a German-speaking comrade that the referendum took place on September 17, 2006.
      For independence with subsequent accession to Russia 97,1%

    Moldavians can now say anything, The problem is that punitive brigades of illegal armed groups of the former Ukraine, who have become adept at massacring civilians in Bucha and Irpen, can hit the east in Transnistria. They need to capture the warehouses of Soviet weapons of the ZGV taken out there. Especially shells for artillery systems, which they ran out of.

    It's all right that they strain, the Americans will decide everything for them: they will say - they will see the threats ...

    In the event of direct aggression, the chances of Pridnestrovie to repel it are minimal. There are practically no heavy weapons, except perhaps a dozen T-64s. During the day, the issue will be resolved not in our favor. Everything depends on the political will of the leadership of Moldova, whether they give the go-ahead to the invasion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the PMR or not. Transnistria is a weak link for Russia
