Chisinau authorities say a total of four people have been kidnaped in Camenca District, Northern Moldova: “It was a well-organized operation involving the KGB. The abducted citizens are being held in detention centers.”

The chairman of the parliamentary commission National Security, Defense, and Public Order Commission, Alexandru Jizdan, declared that on Wednesday, the so-called Transnistrian authorities abducted four people on the left bank of the Nistru river.

“The event happened on the morning of October 7, we were informed of all the actions that have been taken so far. It was established that this operation was organized by the so-called KGB service in the breakaway Transnistrian region and it was established that it is a well-organized operation because it was an operation involving special troops. It is reported that they were abducted for espionage. They are being held in penitentiaries in Tiraspol,” Jizdan said.

Later this week,  the so-called law enforcement agencies in the Transnistrian breakaway region released two of the four citizens. The so-called Foreign Ministry in Tiraspol made the announcement.

The quoted source writes that the Moldovan police was detained along with other men, suspected of committing several crimes on the breakaway Transnistria region’s territory.

Representatives of the so-called ministry claim that President Igor Dodon spoke with Tiraspol’s so-called leader, Vadim Krasnoselski. After the leaders’ discussion, the Transnistrian police decided to release two Moldovan police officers from pre-trial detention.
