Authorities in the breakaway Transnistria region of Moldova reported an attack on a military unit Tuesday, hours after a pair of antennas broadcasting Russian radio were blown up, the latest violence reported in the Moscow-backed enclave in recent days.

Moldovan President Maia Sandu blamed the attacks on factions within the separatist-held enclave and said her government would resist “attempts to drag Moldova into actions that may endanger peace within the country.”
