Leader of the Union of Opposition Forces Oleg Khorzhan killed in Transnistria

On July 17, the PMR Ministry of Internal Affairs announced the death of the leader of the Union of Opposition Forces of the unrecognized republic and the head of the Communist Party of Transnistria, Oleg Khorzhan. The official statement of the press center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs noted that the death policy was violent.

On Monday, July 17, at about 11:30, the police received a message that the body of Khorzhan Oleg Olegovich was found at the place of residence with signs of violent death

the department said.

The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov also announced the murder of a party ally. He confirmed that the head of the Transnistrian Communist Party, Oleg Khorzhan, was killed in his apartment. He noted that the politician was in conflict with the local authorities. For "use of force against government officials" he was previously sentenced to four years. Khorzhan was released in December 2022.

A well-known oppositionist in the unrecognized republic has repeatedly sharply criticized the current government in Moldova and reminded that people in Transnistria survive only thanks to help from Russia.

Earlier it was reported that in May 2023 the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic asked The Kremlin to increase the number of peacekeepers amid worsening security risks. This was told by the head of the PMR representative office in the Russian Federation Leonid Manakov. According to him, initially the contingent of Russian peacekeepers in the republic consisted of six motorized rifle battalions. In 1995, Moscow decided to reduce its strength to two battalions, that is, to 450 people.

    All recent events (the Crimean bridge, the grain deal, the murder in the PMR) are links in the same chain. The West heats up the stop. All this can be stopped only by decisive crushing blows to the infrastructure of Ukraine, including decision-making centers.
