Expert: In case of an attack on Transnistria, Russia will go all the way to the Prut


In Kyiv, they announced that, in the event of a request from Chisinau, Ukraine could send troops to the territory of Transnistria and occupy the republic. However, according to journalist and blogger Yuriy Podolyaka, the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have too many combat-ready units in this direction.


The PMR has a very impressive armed force, which is capable of delaying the advance of Ukrainian troops for a long time. The Transnistrian armed forces have up to four motorized rifle brigades located throughout the republic, and can offer resistance from both Ukraine and Moldova.

The PMR also has a tank battalion, a separate artillery regiment, several heavy artillery battalions and one motorized rifle battalion of the Russian armed forces from local residents - citizens of the Russian Federation.

Two Ukrainian brigades can resist these forces, one of which is mechanized, the other is motorized infantry. In addition, there is another mechanized brigade near Odessa. Thus, Ukraine has few heavy weapons on the border with Transnistria. In addition to the main forces, the Armed Forces of Ukraine can also, if necessary, involve one of the two brigades of the Odessa Territorial Defense.

At the same time, after the transfer of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Pridnestrovie, the rear of the Nikolaev group will be exposed, and the strike of Russian troops through Nikolaev to Odessa will be almost inevitable.

The Ukrainian armed forces can create a real problem for Pridnestrovie only if Moldova goes along with them to attack the PMR

- the expert concluded in his next video.

However, Moldova does not yet show a great desire to participate in such hostilities, since Russia announced the day before that in the event of an aggravation of the situation in the republic, Moscow would recognize the PMR as an independent state and conclude an agreement on mutual assistance with Tiraspol.

With such a development of the situation, sooner or later Russian troops will enter this territory and reach the Prut itself (the western border of Moldova), and it will be possible to put an end to the country's independence

Podolya believes.

    Unfortunately, we are already getting used to warnings that are never heeded, and boasting without any basis, this is the fastest way to lose all credibility and respect in front of friends and enemies.

      In this conflict, things change very quickly. Today I didn’t intend to, but tomorrow cruise missiles are already hitting. There is a lot of understatement, but a multi-volume book is clearly planned.

        In my opinion you are disingenuous! No one gets used to and everything is done in this military operation as mentioned!
        And in fact: If Maia Sandu wants to maintain independence from Russia, it is better for her not to accept any weapons from NATO and not get involved in the conflict on the side against Russia! For Russia will have a land border with Romania)

          I think in this case Romania will remain without the sea.

          She is already ready to get along with Romania, maybe without love, but Uncle Sam overseas probably explained that she needed it.

    Aren't you tired of listening to this "expert"? None of the Russian officials stated that "in the event of an aggravation of the situation in the republic, Moscow will recognize the PMR as an independent state and conclude an agreement on mutual assistance with Tiraspol."
    Another invention of the expert.

      You yourself are likened to criticized experts, arguing that the use of nuclear weapons on the territory of Ukraine is "equivalent to the Third World War against NATO." This is your personal opinion and do not pass it off as an axiom, i.e. opinion of the governments of England and the USA. Ukraine and Moldova are not part of NATO. Yes, and in NATO nothing is done automatically. Each escalation step will be weighted separately. The Russian Federation has a multiple advantage in tactical nuclear weapons in the European theater of operations. And its use will be associated only with the heavy defeat of the Russian army, which only stubborn Nazis seriously talk about.
      As for the "lie of the military of the Russian Federation", only schoolchildren or provocateurs can blame them for this. There are no lies in war, but there is disinformation and military cunning. Well, for the fact that "Russia is groaning from cowardice, stupidity and helplessness," ask Nuland for a cookie. She will. Deserved!
