As Ukrinform reported earlier, on April 6, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine noted that the enemy was trying to improve the tactical situation in the South Buh area. It is possible that Russia might use the territory of self-proclaimed Transnistria as a springboard to support the offensive operation in this area. Meanwhile, the Tiraspol airfield is preparing to receive Russian military planes.
