Transnistria claims assassination attempt on ‘president’ allegedly on SBU's orders, Ukraine reacts
The unrecognized ‘Transnistrian Moldovan Republic’ claims that it prevented an attempted assassination of its ‘president’ Vadim Krasnoselsky, allegedly on the instructions of the SBU. Ukraine has responded
This was reported by the press service of the so-called Ministry of State Security of the ‘Transnistrian Moldovan Republic’.
"The Ministry of State Security of the Transnistrian Moldovan Republic informs about the prevention of a terrorist attack. The crime was prepared on the instructions of the Security Service of Ukraine against a number of officials of the 'Transnistrian Moldovan Republic'. The suspects have been detained. They are testifying," the statement said.
The so-called Transnistrian prosecutor Anatoly Guretsky claims that Krasnoselsky's Land Rover on the instructions of the Ukrainian special services was supposed to detonate. The car allegedly contained 8 kilograms of hexogen. The terrorist attack was planned to be carried out in the center of Tiraspol to attract more people.
The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) responded.
"Any statements by representatives of the so-called 'Ministry of State Security' of the fake 'Transnistrian People's Republic' regarding the participation of the Ukrainian Security Service in the preparation of the terrorist attack should be considered solely as a provocation orchestrated by the Kremlin," the press service writes.
The Ukrainian Security Service urges not to take these statements seriously, as the purpose of their dissemination is to undermine the situation in the territory that is actually occupied and controlled by the Russian Federation, accusing Ukraine of this.
"Lies and provocations are one of the weapons actively used by the Russian Federation. But today the whole world sees the true face of the aggressor country and does not believe the statements of either Russia or its satellites," the press service added.
