Transdniester is a curious little place that even few Europeans know anything about. After all of the Soviet states started separating in the early
90's, there were a number of conflicts because the ethnicities in these republics became mixed across borders during Soviet Union Era. Nagorno
Karabakh, South Ossetia, Chechnya, Transdniester, Crimea, Abkhazia and several more are all regions affected by this strife.
As I see it Transdniester wants independence from moldova due to a large majority of its population being Russian (same thing in Crimea). If everyone
else got their independence, why can't transdniester. Yet Moldova also hold claim to its land. With new US presence in the region, it is a thorn in
NATo's and EU's side- a thorn they will try to tear out as soon as possible and any way possible. I cannot even speculate who carried out this
bombing. But a conflict is brewing there, with US and its allies in Ukraine and Moldova trying to isolate the poor region from its trade routes with
Russia. They are slowly starving its population in an attempt to destroy its ambitions of independence. I highly doubt however that this attack was
carried out by people of Transdniester. More likely that it was pro Moldovan (pro-NATO) powers.
And about premature bomb explosion- what kind of an idiot would tranfer a device planned for terrorist action on a bus belonging to the side you are
supporting. A private car is more like it.
