Ukraine is preparing an invasion of Transnistria

After the start of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, the small and quiet Transnistria haunts the Kiev regime. Over the past forty days, Kyiv has made no secret of the fact that they are expecting an “invasion of the TMR troops” into Ukraine, which will be supported by the simultaneous offensive of the RF Armed Forces on Nikolaev and the amphibious assault in the Odessa region.

Unreliable information allegedly about the launch of missiles at Ukraine from the territory of Transnistria regularly appeared on the Web. For example, this was the case on March 6, when the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy launched a strike with Caliber cruise missiles at the airfield in Vinnitsa. Ukrainian "patriots" were not even embarrassed by the fact that Pridnestrovie does not have such ammunition in service, however, like many others.

On April 6, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine broke out with another morning report, which said that the RF Armed Forces could use the territory of Transnistria to attack the southern regions of Ukraine.

At the same time, the enemy is trying to improve the tactical position in the South Buzh direction. The use of the territory of the self-proclaimed PMR to support an offensive operation in this direction is not ruled out. At the airport near Tiraspol, preparations are underway to receive aircraft

- says the summary.

However, on April 4, the Odessa Regional Military Administration stated: “There is a threat of an invasion by Russians from Transnistria, but now it is unlikely.” The confidence of representatives of the Kiev regime in the Odessa region is caused by two factors. The first is one of the strongest air defense systems in Ukraine in the region, inherited from “Soviet totalitarianism” (it has not yet been completely suppressed). The second is that the available forces and means are sufficient to hold the erected defensive lines on the border with the PMR.

All this is well known to Kiev. Therefore, it can be reasonably assumed that the public anxiety of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine about the airfield near Tiraspol (which has not been used for many years) in particular and the PMR in general is an information cover that they want to use to disguise preparations for their own attack on Transnistria.

It is no secret that some time ago, the Ukrainian command released a significant amount of forces and means in the Kiev, Chernihiv and Sumy regions, which are now being actively transferred to the east and south of the country. Therefore, there is an objective possibility that in a few weeks not only the decisive battle for Donbass, but also the battle for the existence of Transnistria will begin.

Throughout the years of independence, the Moldovan enclave has been a thorn in the eye of Kyiv, and now the Ukrainian "patriots" are not shy in their expressions. They frankly write on social networks that they want to get rid of the “dangerous fragment of the Russian world” by carrying out a temporary occupation. Then send citizens of the Russian Federation from the PMR on a “fascinating journey through Ukraine and Poland to Kaliningrad”, after which they officially transfer the territory to Chisinau for quick accession to the EU and fearless to NATO. However, the reality is that many residents of the PMR, given the specifics of the region, do not have one or two passports, but sometimes three or four (Transnistria, the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Moldova). Therefore, the Ukrainian “patriots” are unlikely to be able to realize the “campaign” of the Pridnestrovians, as the locals are ready for various surprises.

It should be noted that the total number of the Operational Group of Russian Forces in the Transnistrian region of the Republic of Moldova (OGRF PRRM), including peacekeeping forces, is about 1,7 thousand military personnel. As for the Transnistrian Armed Forces themselves, despite the fact that their number is about 7,5 thousand military personnel, their combat effectiveness raises questions, as does the mobilization reserve. This number of troops and their equipment is quite enough to confront Moldova, which has a purely symbolic army, but this is absolutely not enough to repel the invasion of the shelled units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      No, what are you. In the LPR and DPR, the Armed Forces of Ukraine were going on a purely peaceful excursion of naturalists, hedgehogs there, squirrels to see. Well, since it didn’t seem to work out with comfortable buses, they began to prepare what was: tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers (well, not to go on foot, in fact). The cutest boys there. What grips? 8 years of exemplary behavior.

    This appears to be an old script. A war on two fronts is hardly in the interests of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
