Transnistria borders Ukraine, where a special Russian military operation is taking place. Russian peacekeeping forces have been stationed in the unrecognized republic since the end of the active phase of the Transnistrian conflict, which began during the collapse of the Soviet Union.
In mid-April, Moscow announced a new phase of the operation, the purpose of which the authorities called the establishment of control over the Donbass and the south of Ukraine to provide a corridor to Transnistria.
Advisor to the President of Ukraine Oleksiy Arestovich announced that Ukraine is ready to send troops to Transnistria and take control of the situation, but only if the Moldovan authorities ask for it. Chisinau refused this offer, stating that the conflict would be resolved only through negotiations with the conclusion of a peace agreement.
