President Maia Sandu has convened Moldova’s Supreme Security Council after authorities in separatist Transdniester alleged that two radio relays were damaged by blasts on April 26 — the second such incident in the Moscow-backed territory in two days amid rising tensions in the region bordering war-torn Ukraine.
Sandu is scheduled to hold a news conference at 3 p.m. local time (1200 GMT/UTC).
Earlier, the region’s self-styled Interior Ministry said the two radio relays were damaged by blasts.
“In the early morning of April 26, two explosions occurred in the village of Maiak, Grigoriopol district: the first at 6:40 and the second at 7:05”, the ministry said. It said that two radio antennas were knocked out following the blasts.
No one was injured, it said.
