Moldovan president: Russia has plans for a coup

February 13 Moldovan President Mai Sandu said that Russia has a plan to overthrow the country’s pro-Western authorities.

Russia informally supports the separatist Transnistria, located within the borders of Moldova, where a series of incidents took place last year. Their goal – as the authorities in Chisinau assessed at the time – was to try to destabilize the country. These included explosions at a radio tower in the Transnistrian town of Maiac near the Ukrainian border.

Authorities in Kiev feared at the time that Russian secret services were behind the explosions, trying to draw Transnistria, where a Russian military unit is stationed, into a war against Ukraine.

On February 10 this year, the authorities in Kiev and Chisinau announced that two Russian Kalibr missiles fired towards Ukraine from the Black Seaentered the airspace of Moldova.

Last October, a Russian rocket landed in the north of Moldova. The missile was fired by the Russian armed forces towards Ukraine and shot down by Ukrainian anti-aircraft defenses. The authorities in Chisinau recognized then that the missile attacks on Ukraine also threatened the security of Moldova.
