CHISINAU, April 27. /TASS/. There are currently no serious threats to Moldova’s security, the country’s President Maia Sandu said, commenting on a statement by adviser to the head of the Ukrainian president’s office Alexey Arestovich, in which he had said that Ukraine and Romania might provide military assistance to Moldova in case of a threat to its security.
"I can say with certainty that there are currently no serious threats to Moldovan citizens, particularly those from the right bank of the Dniester River," Sandu pointed out.
She stressed that the Moldovan authorities sought to prevent actions that might create threats to the country. "We maintain contact with our partners, informing them of risks through diplomatic channels," the president to noted. "We also have plans to implement if the situation gets out of control," Sandu added.
On Monday, the building of the Ministry of State Security in the unrecognized Republic of Transnistria came under an attack involving hand-held grenade launchers, a military base near the Parkany settlement also came under attack. Two radio antennas were blown up in the Mayak settlement in Transnistria on Tuesday. On Wednesday, a shooting incident was reported near an ammunition depot in Kolbasna, which stores over 20,000 tonnes of ordnance, relocated there after Soviet forces’ withdrawal from European states.
Sandu blamed the attacks on certain forces in Transnistria’s ruling circles who, according to her, are interested in destabilizing the situation. Transnistrian President Vadim Krasnoselsky, in turn, said that the trail of the terrorist attacks led to Ukraine.
