MOSCOW, January 4 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian side is conducting a thorough investigation into the incident that occurred at a Russian-Moldovan-Dniester peacekeeping post in the Dniester conflict security zone on January 1, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
The incident took place at the bridge across the Dniester River near the town of Vadul lui Voda at about 07:00 a.m. on January 1. A Lada car with Moldovan registration numbers twice passed at a high speed through the checkpoint, striking the barrier.
In accordance with the instructions, the head of the Russian group at the post fired warning shots in the air and then, as the driver ignored the order to stop, at the car wheels. One of the bullets hit the driver, 18-year-old Moldovan citizen Vadim Pisar. He was heavily wounded. He was taken to a clinic and operated on, but died there.
The Russian Foreign Ministry expresses deep regrets over the Moldovan citizen's death. The Russian side is conducting a thorough investigation into the incident, and the Moldovan side will be informed about the results, the ministry said, adding that it was discussed in telephone talks with Moldovan Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Popov and Moldovan Ambassador to Russia Andrei Neguta on January 3.
