Ukraine is ready to take control of Pridnestrovie if a corresponding request comes from Moldova. Oleksiy Arestovich, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, stated this on the Youtube channel of lawyer Mark Feygin (recognized as a foreign agent).

“Moldova should seek help from Ukraine and Romania because of the escalation in Transnistria. If Moldova turns to Ukraine, then we can take control of Transnistria. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have enough strength for this, — said Arestovich.

Over the past few days, the situation in Transnistria has sharply escalated. On April 25, in Tiraspol, the building of the Ministry of State Security was shelled from a grenade launcher. The next day, in the village of Mayak near the radio and television center, two explosions occurred, the antennas that relayed Russian radio were disabled. Later, the authorities also reported shelling of a military unit in the village of Parkany.

The government of Transnistria called these three incidents acts of terrorism and declared a red level of terrorist threat. Chisinau did not agree with the conclusions of the authorities in Tiraspol about the incidents. On April 26, Moldovan President Maia Sandu held a meeting of the Security Council of the republic, following which she said that there is tension in Pridnestrovie between different forces within the republic that want to destabilize the situation.

Earlier, on April 27, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Transnistria reported on the shooting at the village of Kolbasna, where one of the largest ammunition depots in Europe is located, from the territory of Ukraine. In addition, at night in the sky over the village “several drones” were seen, launched, according to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, also from the territory of Ukraine.
