MADRID, May 7. (EUROPE PRESS) –
Authorities in the breakaway region of Transnistria, in eastern Moldova, have reported that there have been at least four explosions near the border with Ukraine, attributed to projectiles allegedly launched from a drone.
The region’s Ministry of the Interior has reported that the explosions occurred around 9:40 p.m. (local time) near the town of Varancau, according to a statement collected by Russian news agencies. There is no evidence of personal injury.
These explosions would be added to other incidents denounced by the local authorities since April 25, when they warned of attacks against official institutions and the media. The Government of Moldova, which does not control the area, also ordered extreme surveillance.
The Transnistria region –whose population is mainly Russian and Ukrainian– has gained prominence in recent weeks due to its link with the Russian government and its important geostrategic position. The Ukrainian authorities have come to denounce possible Russian incursions into western Ukraine from Transnistria.
