Today, on March 17, Transnistria reported a "hit" on a military unit, but Chisinau denies the attack.

Today, a drone crashed into a military helicopter in Transnistria. Russian and Transnistrian media immediately began reporting on the "drone attack on a military unit in Tiraspol."

However, Moldova claims that there was no attack and that these reports are an attempt to create fear and panic.

Chisinau authorities deny reports of a drone attack on Tiraspol. According to the representatives of the Reintegration Bureau, this is nothing more than a challenge.

"The Reintegration Bureau has contacted other state authorities, and after studying the video images and exchanging information, we report that the incident in question is an attempt to cause fear and panic in the region. The military equipment in the images has not been in operation for several years," the Bureau said.

According to them, the Chisinau authorities in contact with the Ukrainian side do not confirm any attack on the Transnistrian region.

In a commentary to RBC-Ukraine, a representative of the Defense Ministry's Intelligence Service, Andriy Yusov, said that this was a Russian provocation.

In turn, the Center for Countering Disinformation said that Russia itself carried out a provocation in Transnistria with an attack on a military unit with a kamikaze drone.

"The main logic of the Kremlin's actions is to inflame the situation with information, since Russia has no corridor to Transnistria to carry out military provocations," the center emphasized.

According to them, it is for the purpose of information escalation that the Russians are trying to carry out provocations and manipulate the information space by spreading fakes.
