On April 25, at about 5.45 p.m., a series of explosions erupted in the capital of the unrecognized ‘Transnistrian region of the Republic of Moldova’ (TRM). The explosions took place in the premises where the offices of the local ‘Ministry of State Security’ and the branch of the russian ‘Federal Security Service’ are located.

As a result of the incident, the building was damaged and the windows were broken. There are objects in the street. RPG-22 and RPG-27 anti-tank grenades were presumably employed.

However, this event was not a surprise for the leadership of Moldova’s Transnistria Region. So, on April 22, Vadym Shmalenko, the secretary of the State Commssion for Emergency Situation of Moldova’s Transnistria Region, wrote a document to Volodymyr Bychkov, the Head of Kamenskyi district. The document suggests that it was necessary to urgently prepare information about availability and location of the “protected command and control point of civil defence of the city”, with indication of name of the object, address, and type of protective structure.

That is, three days before the incident, the TRM’s leaders were already preparing for this and took care of the arrangement of a secure and comfortable bunker.

It is obvious that this case is one of several provocative measures, organized by the FSB officers to escalate panic and anti-Ukrainian sentiment. According to the authors’ intention, they should justify the war in the territory of Ukraine, or involve the TRM in hostilities, either as a territory with a certain mobilization reserve or as a territory from which russian troops can carry out attacks on Ukrainian territory.

This is to remind that on April 22, Deputy Commander of the Central Military District of the russian federation, Major General Rustam Minnekaiev announced intentions regarding an unrecognized Moldova’s Transnistria region. He said that the russian army has a task to "establish full control over Donbas and southern Ukraine". After that, the occupiers must break through the corridor to the unrecognized Moldova’s Transnistria region, where "there are facts of oppression of the russian-speaking population".
