The shock group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is concentrated on the border with Transnistria

In the period from April 28 to April 30, on the territory of the Podolsk urban community (formerly Kotovsk) in the Odessa region, combat coordination of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will take place. The local TV company KET informed the public about this, disseminating this information and attracting the attention of residents on behalf of local authorities.

It should be noted that at the beginning of April we suspectedthat Kyiv is preparing an invasion of Transnistria. A few weeks later, a series of incidents occurred in the PMR: grenade launchers were fired at the MGB building in Tiraspol, unknown aircraft were fired at the Mayak village attacked antennas of the radio center, which relayed the radio of the Russian Federation and made it possible to maintain communication, and a number of others. After that, Transnistria began to actively create checkpoints.

Therefore, what is happening in Podolsk should be considered not as a rotation and training firing at the training ground, but as a disguised concentration of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Kyiv is accumulating military reserves in the Odessa region. Now more than 2 Ukrainian servicemen are on the Ukrainian-Pridnestrovian border, and their number is constantly increasing. The accumulation of forces and means, as well as the equipment of the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, continues, here and there groups of military men and various technique. Kyiv tried to make this process as invisible as possible, but the preparations could not be hidden. Even one tactical missile system "Tochka-U" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was noticed.

In general, there are now several tens of thousands of Ukrainian “bayonets” in the Odessa region and the same number in the Vinnitsa region, i.e. Kyiv has something to throw on the PMR. Probably, Ukraine will want to divert Russia's attention from the Donbass. Therefore, it is interesting to find out what forces and means Pridnestrovie can oppose to the aggressor.

The main problem of the PMR is its geographical location. The self-proclaimed republic is landlocked, sitting between Moldova and Ukraine. At the same time, in relation to Ukraine, Pridnestrovie has the most disadvantageous position. The PMR is very narrow, at its widest point only 40 km, it is pressed against the Dniester River and stretches for 202 km from northwest to southeast. Defending such a territory from Moldova, which has practically no army and is located on the other side, is not difficult. However, it will be very problematic to hold positions from the shelled Ukrainian army, because the entire territory of the PMR is actually shot through and does not have sufficient depth for a normal regrouping of troops and calm logistics.

At the moment, there are 2,5-3 thousand servicemen of the RF Armed Forces in Transnistria (the 82nd and 113th separate guards motorized rifle battalions, and the 540th separate control battalion). The total strength of the PMR Armed Forces reaches 15 military (4 motorized rifle brigades in Tiraspol, Bendery, Dubossary and Rybnitsa), as well as four special-purpose battalions. In service there are: 100 tanks, up to 200 armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, 35 thousand vehicles, BRDM, artillery guns and mortars, Grad MLRS, combat vehicles with ATGMs, 200 air defense systems, 500 units of military engineering equipment.

The readiness of all the equipment of the PMR Armed Forces for combat operations is unknown, therefore the Pridnestrovian military power is conditional, as well as the mobilization reserve and the call for reservists. In reality, no one knows how many of the 465 remaining residents of the PMR will be able to collect for the acquisition of units. All other considerations are purely theoretical. However, it should be taken into account that half of the PMR population has Russian passports, i.e. they are citizens of the Russian Federation. Therefore, whatever happens there, Russia will definitely come to the rescue.

    Therefore, no matter what happens there, Russia will definitely come to the rescue.

    Donbass has already arrived. As they shot at Donetsk, they shoot. For two months, the ukrovermacht was not moved a kilometer away from the city. Mariupol is in ruins. But it was in the hands of the DPR in 2015. No, the agreements with Akhmetov, and surrendered the city.
    Everyone thinks that the leader is a smart, cunning multi-move. Knows what to do. Look at the results.
    The Lord will punish all traitors to the Russian land.

      Excuse me, although you are a Teacher, and even a Wise one, no one has yet canceled "thinking with your head". I will be brief, yesterday I arrived from Mariupol, about the fact that the city is "into dust", you, my friend, turned down! Yes, there is destruction, in some places large. But not in DASH. And about Mariupol in 2015. If they had taken it then, then Ukraine would have blocked the water through the canal from the Seversky Donets to the entire territory of Donbass. Mariupol receives water through a canal system from this river. There is a reservoir - the Old Crimean reservoir (practically within the city). So (I repeat) if they took Mariupol in 2015 ... then, you yourself understand that "without water, neither there nor here ..." And so Mariupol remained behind Ukraine and therefore Donetsk was safely receiving water until recently. And as soon as Mariupol was besieged, Ukraine cut off the water in the Slavyansk region, which is now observed in Donetsk. Yes, I forgot to say that the water conduit system to Mariupol is tied to the same system to Donetsk. Something like that. As Professor Preobrazhensky said ... "do not read Soviet newspapers before dinner, it affects digestion ..." And on your own, use trusted sources.

    Kyiv is accumulating military reserves in the Odessa region.

    Again, a statement of facts. Well, if you know that the calibers are over? It looks like we are being asked for advice. I allow. If the calibers are over, you can hit with aircraft or Iskander. Contact, do not hesitate!

    And where are the "powerful and invincible" Russian Aerospace Forces? Or will they reveal themselves only after the death of thousands of people in Transnistria?
    At first, for two months they stupidly stared anti-aircraft guns at military transportation along the Ukrozheleznitsa. But only because, according to political scientist S. Mikheev, Ukrozheleznitsa served the interests of one of the Russian business groups. What's it like? In order for a business group in Russia to count the coveted gesheft, take care of the railway lines of the Reich's coming out like the apple of an eye, and troops, weapons, and ammunition are transferred along them. And all this brought death to our guys, militias and residents of Donbass.
    I am afraid that even now they will give the Wehrmacht and the Romanians a bloody massacre. And then on TV on talk shows, "experts" will start to fight in hysterics, rage, threaten nuclear strikes, splash saliva. And they will stately broadcast about a certain "brilliant" plan, that the capture of Transnistria by the enemy is a super-duper, what a success we are, that yes we are now, yes, keep us now with seven of us, but better together, but now we'll ka-a-ak zhah.
    According to the mind, the Aerospace Forces should now begin beating up the Wehrmacht grouping in the Odessa region. But only one conclusion can be drawn from their inaction: in the depths of the Reich, the air defense is by no means suppressed, this is one, but two - there were enough Luftwaffe aircraft at the Romanian airfields to try to repulse the Russian Aerospace Forces over Odessa. And the number of aircraft in the Aerospace Forces, according to the prevailing theory of "quality instead of quantity" in our country, does not allow even miserable losses to be incurred, each aircraft is worth its weight in gold.
    So it turns out that Pridnestrovie hears only sacramental words: "We are with you mentally."
    I really hope to be wrong. Highly.

      Those. Do you have to tell us that Ukrozheleznitsa was attacked immediately on February 24, and not at the end of April? And we did not know, we arrived in ignorance. Maybe the bridges across the Dnieper were crumbled back in February, but we don’t know?

    - If Transnistria falls, it will be a disaster for Russia and its authority as a great nation. The same thing happened with the cruiser Moskva, which was in obvious danger and no one did anything, only lies, tears and disproportionate threats.
    - In this regard, the big lie of the Russian media in this war is that the sky of central and western Ukraine belongs to Russia: A complete lie, it is closed, no Russian, much less heavy aircraft can fly there.
    - Another big lie of this war, which only benefits NATO, ties Russia's hands and is spread by all ignoramuses, idiots and cowards inside Russia, including journalists and "experts": The use of small arms tactical nuclear weapons INSIDE the territory of Ukraine is equivalent to World War III against NATO and, consequently, the destruction of the world.

    So Russia groans in cowardice, stupidity and helplessness while the Ukronazis prepare for a massive attack on Transnistria because Russia knows the only way to stop them is (also to stop the flow of NATO weapons and win this war with some confidence and without serious losses) with weapons he dare not use.

    The loss of Transnistria and the massacre of Russian citizens, Russian peacekeepers there is the end of Putin's presidency and almost the end of Russia as a state. And the end is shameful.
    How did England win the war for the Falklands thousands of miles away? There are other examples as well. Here 300 kilometers from Crimea to Transnistria became an insurmountable barrier! Air defense of Ukraine, sample of the 90s is not suppressed! What will happen when they are armed thoroughly? Will we fly only beyond the Urals?
    If Mikheev's information about Ukrozaliznitsa is correct, then in any country it would be a huge scandal with resignations. In any, but not in Russia.
    The Lord will punish all traitors to the Russian land.

    in the village of Mayak, unknown aircraft attacked the antennas of the radio center, which relayed the radio of the Russian Federation and allowed to keep in touch,

    At this very time, well-known aviation does not dare to attack the radio and TV antennas of Ukraine. Or, too, the business interests of someone do not want to violate? Here the Americans in Yugoslavia were not afraid to violate business interests and the first thing they did was bombed all the TV broadcast antennas in Yugoslavia. And then they divided this country into enclaves under the leadership of NATO and the EU. Or someone else's experience is not in use?
