After a series of explosions, a Moscow-backed area in Moldova, which borders Ukraine, has made headlines.

Following multiple explosions in the separatist Moscow-backed enclave of Transnistria, fears are growing that the small former Soviet republic of Moldova may be pulled into the crisis in neighboring Ukraine. The mystery explosions, which targeted the state security ministry, a radio tower, and a military unit, occurred only days after a top Russian general claimed that Russian speakers in Moldova were being repressed — the same justification Russia used to justify its invasion of Ukraine. The deputy commander of Russia’s central military region, Rustam Minnekayev, stated that seizing control of southern Ukraine would allow Russia to connect with Transnistria, which is only over the border from the Black Sea port of Odesa.
