President Maia Sandu said after a meeting of Moldova's Supreme Security Council on Tuesday that explosions in Transnistria for two days in a row "show that there are tensions between various forces" that are interested in destabilising the breakaway region, where Russian troops have been based since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Moldovan President Maia Sandu on Thursday said parliament will be asked to declare a state of emergency over the gathering war in Ukraine, adding that the country was "on alert" and ready to receive refugees from Ukraine.
Russian forces conducted multiple strikes on Ukraine on Thursday in what the US described as a full-scale invasion.
The European Court of Human Rights, ECHR, ruled on Tuesday that the presumption of innocence in a case concerning former Moldovan Prime Minister Vladimir Filat was not violated when he was detained on corruption charges in 2015.
Filat was detained in the premises of parliament immediately after lawmakers voted to lift his immunity on October 15, 2015.
