CHISINAU, January 1 (Itar-Tass) —— A Moldovan citizen, who was heavily injured by a Russian peacekeeper in Transdniestria on Sunday, died, a source at the hospital told Itar-Tass.
He said the 18-year-old boy was injured in his stomach and internal organs were damaged. The boy died in spite of a surgery.
The Moldovan authorities are investigating the incident. A task force of the police commissariat and the Dubossary district prosecutor’s office, representatives of the Joint Control Commission supervising the peacekeeping operation and the command of the joint peacekeeping force of Moldova, Russia and Transdniestria are holding the investigation, a source at the government’s Reintegration Bureau said.
It reported some details of the incident, which happened at the ninth peacekeepers post on a bridge across the Dniester River, near the town of Vadul-lui-Voda, at 7:15 a.m. local time (9:15 a.m. Moscow time). Two residents of the Pyryta village were riding to Chisinau. The driver ignored the stop road sign at the peacekeepers post and disobeyed the demand to pull over. The same happened on the other bank of the river. About 20 minutes later the car returned, got around barb entanglements and drove on without stopping. The peacekeepers post commander fired into the air in warning before firing at the car.
The joint peacekeeping force of Moldova, Russia and Transdniestria was deployed in the conflict zone in compliance with the agreement of July 21, 1992.
