Sep 25, 2023

In the unrecognized Transnistria (part of Moldova), fragments of an S-300 missile were found.

This was reported by the media outlet News Maker.

"Wreckage of a 1968 S-300 missile fell in Transnistria. The explosion occurred in the air," the publication reported.

According to the media, the debris fell into one of the gardens in the village of Kitscani. According to preliminary reports, there were no casualties.

"The warhead of the missile hit the ground but did not explode. The explosion occurred at 1 a.m.," the News Maker source said.

While there is practically no official information (Prime Minister Dorin Recean did not answer journalists' questions after the press conference), the Transnistrian state channel publishes a video from the scene and the words of Oleg Belyakov, co-chairman of the Joint Control Commission from Transnistria, who says that the missile still poses a danger, the outlet notes.

It is worth noting that the unrecognized Transnistrian Moldavian Republic (TMR) is a part of Moldova captured by Russian troops. It occupies almost the entire Moldovan part of the left bank of the Dniester River, as well as several settlements on the right bank of the river. In the northeast, it borders Ukraine (Odesa and Vinnytsia regions).
