The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Pesko said they are monitoring the events in the pro-Russia Moldovan breakaway region.

Peskov said that what happened in Transnistria is a “serious concern” and the breakaway region has raised their “terrorist threat level” to red.

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union Russia has around 1,500 troops who are permanently stationed in Transnistria.

On Tuesday the Moldovan Ministry said in a statement, “In the early morning of April 26, two explosions occurred in the village of Maiac, Grigoriopol district: the first at 6:40 and the second at 7:05.”

In a statement on Facebook, Transnistria’s Interior Ministry said some of the state security building windows were broken and “smoke is billowing out.”

The Moldovan Foreign Ministry have said that they are “concerned” as the Russian attacks are “straining” security in the Transdniestria region.

They said in a statement on Monday, “The aim of today’s incident is to create pretexts for straining the security situation in the Transnistrian region, which is not controlled by the constitutional authorities.”
