In Moldova, they believe that the explosions are connected with “various forces inside Transnistria” that are interested in destabilizing the situation. The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky considered that the situation in the region was “trying to destabilize” Russia. The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, in turn, said that Moscow regards the incidents as terrorism and an attempt to involve the region in the situation in Ukraine, where the Russian military operation is taking place.
