The Moldovan Office of Reintegration is concerned about the incident that took place today in the city of Tiraspol. According to available information, unidentified people fired grenade launchers at the headquarters of the so-called security structure in the region. There are no casualties or injuries, according to preliminary data.
According to the Office, the aim of today’s incident is to create pretexts for straining the security situation in the Transnistrian region, which is not controlled by the constitutional authorities. In this context, the Office for Reintegration Policy calls for calm and, together with the relevant national institutions, monitors developments in this case.
