This point of view was expressed by a military expert, major general, Victor Kravtsov.
In his opinion, in the event of a further escalation of tensions on the border of Transnistria, Tiraspol within 10-15 days will be able to mobilize up to 50 thousand well-trained reservists, and that is five infantry divisions.
The first two divisions can be formed in 5-7 days. There are sufficient stores of weapons and military equipment. With this military force Transnistria will be able to confidently repulse an attack, both from the side of Ukraine and Moldova.
Of course, the situation changes significantly in the event Romania, which is a member of NATO, enters the conflict. But in this case Russia will not stand aside, as in the region it has a limited group of troops, peacekeepers and the largest [Soviet] military warehouse [with 20 thousand tons of ammo – KR].
