Pro-Russian separatists in Moldova said on Saturday (7) that their region was hit four times by drones overnight near the border with Ukraine .

Nearly two weeks of similar incidents reported in the breakaway region of transnistria ignited the international alarm that the Russian war in Ukraine could spread beyond the country.

The Transnistrian Interior Ministry released photos of craters it said were generated by the overnight attacks.

He said no one was injured in the attacks, which took place in Rybnitsa district in the north of the region. Russian troops guard a military base with a large cache of era ammunition soviet in the district, located on the border with Ukraine.

The ministry statement did not say who was suspected of being behind the latest attacks.

Ukraine has repeatedly denied any blame for the incidents in Transnistria, saying it believes Russia is carrying out fake attacks to provoke a war. Moscow also denied blame.

THE Russia has had a small contingent of peacekeepers in the breakaway region for 30 years, and the reported incidents have raised international concern that they might be drawn into the conflict. The government proWestern from Moldova says he suspects “pro-war” factions among the separatists themselves.

A top Russian commander said last month that Russia planned to take full control of southern Ukraine and that this would improve Russian access to Transnistria.

Russia calls its actions in Ukraine a “special operation” to disarm the country and protect it from fascists. Ukraine and the West say the fascist claim is unfounded and that the war is an unprovoked act of aggression.
