The Russian Defense Ministry accused Ukraine on Thursday of planning to invade Transnistria, which is separated from Moldova, after a fake operation, according to the RIA news agency.

The Russian Defense Ministry said Ukraine had planned an attack, allegedly launched by Russian forces, from Transnistria as a pretext for the invasion.

In a separate context, the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin said that the West had instructed the Chisinau government to stop any interaction with the Moscow-backed Transnistrian administration.

Earlier this month, Moldovan President Maia Sandu accused Moscow of plotting a coup to overthrow the government and drag Transnistria into its war.

The mainly Russian-speaking region broke away from then-Soviet Moldova in 1990.

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, pro-Russian separatists fought a bloody war against government forces in Moldova.
