Transdniestria suspends bus traffic to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kyiv over incident in Ukraine
TIRASPOL. Feb 20 (Interfax) - Regular bus traffic from Tiraspol to Moscow and St. Petersburg and from Bendery to Kyiv has been suspended for the sake of the security of Transdniestrian residents, head of the unrecognized republic's state transportation and road service Vladimir Trandasir told reporters on Thursday.
"Our mini-bus was stopped in the vicinity of the Mankovka village in the Cherkasy region of Ukraine last night with the use of special means, the so-called Molotov cocktail. The driver was advised at gunpoint to go back, and he followed that advice," he said.
In the words of Trandasir, the driver works for a Moldovan transportation company operating this route.
"The traffic will be suspended until further notice," he said.
A number of Ukrainian media outlets circulated in Transdniestria said that a mini-bus traveling from Tiraspol to St. Petersburg had been set on fire by unknown persons with Molotov cocktails on the Odesa-Kyiv road.
The Ukrainian journalists said the attack was perpetrated by local residents who set up a roadblock to hinder the transportation of the opponents of opposition forces to Kyiv.
