MOSCOW, April 27 – RIA Novosti. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov regards the threat of the adviser to the office of Vladimir Zelensky Alexei Arestovich to seize Transnistria as quite provocative.
Earlier, Arestovich threatened to seize Transnistria if Moldova turns to Ukraine.
“Quite provocative,” Peskov told reporters when asked how the Kremlin views such a statement.
“That’s all I can say,” he added.
There were three terrorist attacks in Pridnestrovie – in the building of the Ministry of State Security of the PMR in Tiraspol, near a military unit near the village of Parkany and on the tower of a radio and television center near the village of Mayak. A “red” level of terrorist threat has been introduced in the republic. The Investigative Committee of Transnistria opened criminal cases under the article “a terrorist attack committed by a group of persons using firearms.” A source in Tiraspol said that the terrorist attacks in the PMR were carried out by three unidentified persons who arrived from the territory of Ukraine.
On Wednesday, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the unrecognized Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic confirmed that shots were fired from the Ukrainian side in the direction of the village of Kolbasna, where military depots are located.

The president of the unrecognized PMR, Vadim Krasnoselsky, said that the traces of the organizers of the explosions in Transnistria lead to Ukraine. Due to emergency circumstances, the simplified procedure for crossing the PMR border on Easter and memorial days is canceled, and roadblocks are set up at the entrances to the cities.
Transnistria, 60% of whose inhabitants are Russians and Ukrainians, sought secession from Moldova even before the collapse of the USSR, fearing that Moldova would join Romania on the wave of nationalism. In 1992, after a failed attempt by the Moldovan authorities to solve the problem by force, Transnistria became virtually a territory not controlled by Chisinau.
