Ukraine Blames Russia for the Transnistria Explosions, Basically Calling them False Flags, But Moldova Is Asking for Calm While Saying it’s Likely Opposing Factions
Transnistria, officially the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (PMR), is a breakaway state unrecognized by most of the international community. To most it’s simply part of Moldova, but to Russia, its allies and themselves, they are a a sovereign country. The territory is on the western border with Ukraine and where Russia has staged troops and military equipment since the 90s. Now, it seems it’s possible that war has stretched to this location, or someone is attempting to stretch the war there.
There have been at least four explosions in this territory. The Ukrainian government is blaming Russia, saying that the explosions are part of a “provocation” to give them more reason to start a wider war. In other words, the Ukrainian government is calling this a false flag.
The Russian government says this is Ukraine going after less guarded targets of a breakaway country which sides with Russia.
The Moldovan government, however, is asking for calm claiming they believe the blasts may be due to opposing factions fighting within Transnistria taking advantage of the situation.
More details are in the following video which comes by way of France 24 English.
We’re currently looking to find any evidence that blasts have occurred at all and if the locations stated in this video are where they occurred.
The Moldovan president made an emergency security announcement. This is where she “urged caution” before jumping to conclusions and says that “pro-war factions” are trying to destabilize the region.
What do you think? Is it a Russian false flag? Is it Ukraine? Or is it factions drunk on the opportunity of war? Let us know your thoughts below.
