Moldova urges calm, boosts security after Transnistria blasts

France24 says Ex-Soviet Moldova on Tuesday urged citizens to stay calm and stepped up security after a series of blasts in a Russian-backed separatist region raised fears of a spillover from the war in Ukraine.

The breakaway region of Transnistria said there were explosions on Monday and Tuesday in the security ministry, a military unit and a radio tower belonging to Russia, and called them “terrorist attacks”.

Transnistria is located about 80 kilometres (50 miles) from Moldova’s capital Chisinau, bordering western Ukraine.

“We urge citizens to keep calm and feel safe,” President Maia Sandu said after a meeting of the national security council.
