On Friday, a Russian general publicly announced plans to also invade and occupy the Transnistria region of Moldova, despite the opposition force their troops have been met with from Ukrainians.

Acting commander of Russia’s Central Military District, Brigadier General Rustam Minnekayev, said the Russian Armed Forces plan to “make passage” into Moldova’s East.

The area borders Ukraine and is less than 30 miles from the port city of Odessa. The plan is to create a “land corridor to Crimea” Russian media reported. The corridor allegedly would connect Russia’s mainland to Transnistria.

The New York Times reports the Moldovan government has been concerned with an attempt by Russia for years, as Transnistria is “a thin sliver of territory that is controlled by at least 12,000 separatists and Russian troops.”

Additionally, the Times adds “since the war erupted, the Moldovan and Ukrainian militaries have faced the extra concern of whether the Transnistrians were going to jump into the battle and start attacking Ukraine from the west. So far, that has not happened.”

Moscow holds “nearly 100 percent of Moldova’s energy supply.” Immediately after the General’s comments, the Moldovan government “summoned the Russian ambassador to complain about the general’s statement, saying it was ‘not only unacceptable but also unfounded’ ad led to ‘increased tension.”

    As we see the allies loading Ukraine with “arms” that will be used against Russian forces, using Ukraine as the “staging area”.

Russia launches surveillance satellite for Iran for ‘agricultural, environmental, and scientific purposes’

Iran nuclear weapons program

In the latest partnership between Iran and Russia, Roscosmos Corporation, a Russian state-owned company, “launched an Iranian photographic satellite from its Vostochny Cosmodrome using a Soyuz rocket” reports The Foreign Desk. The surveillance equipment is expected to send high-resolution pictures from 500 km above the earth’s surface, and state media in Iran says it will generate images for agricultural, environmental, and scientific purposes.

This is not the first time Iran has found friends in ‘high places’. In 2022, Russia assisted Iran with the launching of a remote-sensing Khayyam satellite from a facility in Kazakhstan. Iran’s Telecommunications Minister, Issa Zarepour, portrayed the project as “fully domestically developed.”Since Russia began its invasion of Ukraine in 2022, Iran and Russia have worked together to mitigate the numerous international sanctions that have been levied against their governments.

“Tehran has sent ballistic missiles, attack-drones, and battlefield munitions to assist Moscow’s military operations against Ukrainian forces. Russia has reciprocated with the transfer of military aircraft and advanced technical support” reports The Foreign Desk.

Shortly after the Biden administration and members of the United Nations allowed preventive sanctions to expire earlier this year, Iran sent hundreds of ballistic missiles to Russia, reportedly in return for fighter jets and helicopters from Moscow.

“The U.S. and European partners declined to prevent the expiration of U.N. sanctions in late 2023 that curbed Iran’s ability to transfer missiles” reports The Foreign Desk.
