On the Dnieper road, Tiraspol-Rybnitsa, just a few kilometers from the Ukrainian border, colonies of Russian military equipment were noticed.

Three columns of armored military equipment and special vehicles moved from the base of the Operational Group of Russian Forces in Transdniestria towards the city of Dubasari, which is located on the territory of the unrecognized republic.

Later, the Moldavian side in the Joint Control Commission expressed concern about the transfer of technology and demanded a response from Tiraspol and Russia.

In response, the representatives of the Transnistrian region stated that all military equipment was in permanent deployment

The Moldovan Bureau of Reintegration expressed its concern in regard to the unauthorized movement of these military units within the presumably demilitarized Security Zone. Chișinău declared that it found “unjustified” application of “peacekeeping forces” symbols on the vehicles, most of which belong to the Operative Group of Russian Troops, illegally stationed in Moldova.

The topic was addressed by the Moldovan delegation at the weekly meeting of the Joint Control Commission. Chișinău representatives asked Tiraspol administration and the Russian delegates to explain the situation. While the separatist delegates claimed that Transnistrian “force structures” were not involved at all, the Russian reps promised to document the incident more and come with a reaction later.

Moldova’s Bureau of Reintegration declares that the 4th article- the neutrality of the Russian army dislocated in the region-, of the 1992 Moldo-Russian Agreement on Transnistrian conflict settlement was violated, as well as the JCC provisions on preliminary informing on any movement of non-peacekeeping contingents.

Chișinău asked the OSCE Mission in Moldova to inform the OSCE Conflict Prevention Centre in Viena about the incident, in order to impose proper measures of preventing “such unilateral and provocative acts” in the Security Zone.

Neither Tiraspol nor Moscow has come with a full position on whose military columns were moving on the Tiraspol-Râbnița road on 14 June.

Ukraine’s Foreign Affairs Ministry has expressed “concern about the actions of the Russian Federation regarding the violation of the regime of the Transdniestrian conflict security zone, in particular the unauthorized movement of military equipment and weapons of the operational group of Russian troops in the Transdniestrian region of the Republic of Moldova on June 14, 2018 escorted by so-called “law enforcement agencies” of unrecognized republic”, reports Kyiv Post.

Besides the 441 “peacekeepers”, Russia holds the Operative Group of the Russian Forces in the Transnistrian region of Moldova containing approximately 1200 regular soldiers, mainly recruited among locals. The Group is the new shape of the former 14th Guards Army of the Soviet Union that is illegally stationed in Transnistria after the collapse of SU. The Group and the Peacekeeping Mission are strongly interconnected through the rotation of troops between them, and both contain local Transnistrian men with Russian passports, despite their neutrality claims.

In 2017 and the start of 2018, experts have seen a significant increase in OGRT’s military activity.

“Ukraine adheres to a clear position, which is based on the principles of respect for territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Moldova. Transnistria is an integral part of Moldova”, – said the Minister of defence of Ukraine.

“We will do everything possible to help in the restoration of the territorial integrity of Moldova and maintain it in the future. We support the General military-political course on European and Euro-Atlantic integration and we will be on a mutually beneficial basis to develop our armed forces to NATO standards. This approach of friendship, understanding and support will always be the core of Ukrainian-Moldovan relations in the field of defense,” – said Poltorak.

In turn, the candidate has assured that Ukraine can always count on Moldova’s support. “Moldova, like anyone else, understands what we had to face Ukraine, and supports the early resolution of the crisis, preserving the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. You can always count on our support, as well as Moldova knows that Ukraine supports us,” he stated.

As previously reported, Russia occupied a part of Moldova 25 years ago. 12 April, Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova Pavel Filip said the possibility of negotiations with the Ukrainian authorities on the withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria through the corridor on the territory of Ukraine. 17 April, the Special representative of Ukraine on Transnistrian settlement Viktor Kryzhanivsky noted that Ukraine is ready to provide territory for the withdrawal of Russian troops from Transnistria, but the Russian Federation shows no willingness to withdraw them.

The difference is that the US isn't going to invade Russia.

Russia has already invaded Ukraine.

The US was welcomed by the Polish Government to protect them from Russia the aggressor.

Russia took Ukraine by force like the crooked police state it is to place its military there, as the true aggressor we all know Russia to be.

Servicemen of the Operational Group of Russian Forces in the Transdniestrian region of the Republic of Moldova took part in commemorative events dedicated to the 26th anniversary of the Day of Remembrance and Sorrow for the victims in the city of Bendery in 1992.

Representatives of the administration of Transnistria, the city, ministries and law enforcement agencies of the region, as well as public organizations and youth movements participated in the events. Funeral events began with a rally, after which flowers were laid to the Memorial of Memory and Sorrow in honor of the perished defenders of Transnistria in the armed conflict of 1992. Russian servicemen in Transnistria regularly take an active part in the social life of the region, in solemn and commemorative events dedicated to the Days of Military Glory and perpetuating the memory of the deceased defenders of the Fatherland.

Well, there were Russian troops in Transnistria since the fall of the USSR, nothing new. As long as they're not entering Ukrainian territory in the West, they're not doing anything different than during the 1992-2014 period.
