A series of explosions erupted in the capital of the unrecognized Transnistrian Moldavian Republic (TMR) on April 25 at about 5:45 p.m. They took place in the premises of the offices of the local "Ministry of State Security" and the branch of the Russian "Federal Security Service" in Transnistria.

As a result of the incident, the building was damaged and the windows were broken. There are objects on the street near the room. Presumably used RPG-22 and RPG-27.

However, this event did not come as a surprise to the PMR leadership. On April 22, Vadym Shmalenko, secretary of the State Commission for Emergency Situations of the Transnistrian Region, wrote a letter to the head of the Kamensky district, Volodymyr Bychkov. It was about the urgent (until 16.00 on the same day) preparation of information on the availability and location of "protected point of civil defense of the city." Indicating:

  • Name of the object;
  • Addresses;
  • Type of protective structure

Three days before the incident, the leaders of the "PMR" were already preparing for it and took care of the installation of a secure and comfortable bunker.

It is obvious that this case is one of a number of provocative measures organized by the FSB to instill panic and anti-Ukrainian sentiment. According to the authors, they should justify the war on the territory of Ukraine or involve the Transnistrian region in hostilities. Either as a territory with a certain mobilization reserve, or as a territory from which Russian troops can attack Ukrainian territory.

On April 22, Deputy Commander of the Central Military District of the Russian Federation, Major General Rustam Minnekayev, announced plans for an unrecognized "Transnistrian region". He said that the Russian army has the task of "establishing full control over Donbass and southern Ukraine." After that, the occupiers must break through the corridor to the unrecognized "Transnistrian region", where "the facts of oppression of the Russian-speaking population are noted."

According to the available information, the FSB will continue a series of provocative terrorist attacks on the territory of the Transnistrian region.
