Statement by PMR Foreign Ministry on Terrorist Attack in Pridnestrovie



On 17 March, a military air base in the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic was attacked by a kamikaze drone, causing a fire and destruction of military property.

We condemn this terrorist act, as well as any similar actions that jeopardize people’s lives, peace and security on the banks of the Dniester River. This is a challenge for all states that are truly interested in regional stability.

Suppression by certain actors of unprecedented terrorist threat to Pridnestrovie through several terrorist attacks over the last three years is a negative factor causing the recurrence of such attacks. This is confirmed by the inadequate reaction to the incident by the office of Moldova’s political representative in the form of primitive propaganda encouraging further escalation.  

The Foreign Ministry of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic has addressed the international participants to the 5+2 format requiring a proactive position in order to suppress terrorist actions against the peaceful Pridnestrovie, to prevent a flare-up of tension and to facilitate a civilized settlement of the Moldova-Pridnestrovie conflict.

We emphasize that the Pridnestrovian people strongly oppose intimidation and pressure, and stay united and consolidated in the face of external threats.
