Description

Transnistria is an unrecognised breakaway state in Moldova. The US has suggested there are “indications” that Russia wants to build a land bridge through Ukraine to Transnistria. But would that pull Moldova into the Russia-Ukraine conflict?

On the Sky News Daily podcast with Kimberley Leonard, our Europe correspondent Adam Parsons, who was recently in Moldova, explains what the country and its relationship with Transnistria is like, and Viorel Barbanoua shares his story reporting from the Moldova-Ukraine border.

Plus, Natia Seskuria, an associate fellow at security think-tank RUSI, and former Moldova ambassador to the UN Vlad Lupan, tell us about the country being pulled into the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and what it will mean if Ukraine loses.
