The breakaway Moldovan region of Transnistria has reported new attacks from drones near its border with Ukraine following a string of mysterious incidents described by the self-proclaimed republic as acts of “terror.”
According to the Transnistrian Interior Ministry, on Friday evening four explosions occurred in the vicinity of a former airfield near the village of Voronkovo, 10 kilometers from the Ukrainian border. First, two bombs were dropped from the air at 9.40 pm local time and two more – an hour later, the ministry claimed, adding that no injuries have been reported.
“The depth of the craters is approximately 1 meter, the diameter is about 25 centimeters. An investigative team is at the scene,” the ministry said in a statement, adding that bomb fragments have been collected for analysis.
The ministry said the alleged drone strikes mark the second case of suspicious activity in the Voronkovo area. The first occurred on May 5 when “two explosive devices were dropped from a drone.”
