The representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defence (GUR) Ministry, Andriy Chernyak, said that there is almost nothing in military warehouses in Transnistria, RBC-Ukraine reports.

"The Russians have a very limited contingent in Transnistria. There are warehouses that they guard. But there is almost nothing in those warehouses anymore, and what is left is old and unusable. As for Moldova, they are now trying to shake up the situation politically - under a false flag," Chernyak said.

He reminded everyone that the Russians had once organized something similar in Donetsk and Luhansk.

"In our opinion, by creating tension in Moldova, Russia is pursuing two goals. The first is an attempt to distract the European public from the events taking place in Ukraine. They see that all the attention is focused on Ukraine, including assistance. That is why they are trying to ignite a new fire in Europe," explained Chernyak.

Secondly, he says, they aim for the domestic consumer in Russia.

"After all, they have not achieved any results in their so-called 'special military operation'. Therefore, they need to demonstrate some kind of 'victories' for their population," Chernyak said.

He added that now the Russians are trying to make some sort of revolution in Moldova to create the illusion that "the international community is with them" and "the people of Moldova are with Russia."

Recently, Moldovan Prime Minister Dorin Recean said that Russia does not have the resources to invade Moldova. In particular, the Moldovan Prime Minister noted that Ukraine's air defence system also protects Moldova.

On 28 February, pro-Russian protesters in Chisinau tried to break into the government building. They set up a stage near Chisinau City Hall.
