KYIV — Ukraine’s foreign ministry expressed concern on Tuesday about the situation in Moldova’s pro-Russian breakaway region of Transdniestria, and condemned what it said were Russian attempts to drag the region into Russia’s war against Ukraine.

After a series of explosions in Transdniestria, the Ukrainian foreign ministry reaffirmed its support for Moldova’s territorial integrity, and said that Ukraine’s armed forces were ready to defend their country against any threat.
