Ambassador of the Republic of Moldova to Ukraine Ruslan Bolbochan states that "instructors" from the unrecognized Transnistria who collaborated with Russian-backed militants in Donbas have been detained in Moldova, thanks to cooperation and information exchange between Ukrainian and Moldovan security officials.

"We've been seeing a very high-level dialogue between Moldova and Ukraine. This promotes very close interdepartmental interaction between representatives of the two countries' border and customs services, and those of security agencies,"  he said at a panel discussion "Traps of the Transnistrian settlement: How to avoid them" held on April 17, an UNIAN correspondent reports.

However, the diplomat refused to specify the number of such detainees, and how often such arrests are carried out.
