Maia Sandu “will hold a summit of the Security Council today due to the incidents in the Transnistrian region,” the Moldovan presidency said in a statement.

Today, two explosions damaged a radio tower, and on Monday, separatist authorities announced a grenade launcher attack on an office building in the region’s capital, Tiraspol.
These two cases did not cause any injuries, but they increase fears of a spreading conflict in Moldova in neighboring Ukraine.
Moldova gained independence in the early 1990s when the Soviet Union collapsed, but Russian forces with less than half a million inhabitants on the outskirts of the region, known as Transnistria, opposed the Moldovan authorities and established a new independent state. declare a de facto republic.
Transnistria is not an internationally recognized country, but it is still a separate entity from Moldova.
There are an estimated 2,000 Russian soldiers permanently in Transnistria.
Tiraspol is located just a hundred kilometers from the Ukrainian port of Odessa, one of the goals of the Kremlin’s current campaign.
