Tiraspol [Moldova], May 8 (ANI/Sputnik): Four explosions rocked the Transnistrian village of Varancau at the border with Ukraine on Friday evening, with explosive devices being allegedly dropped from a drone, the Interior Ministry of the unrecognized Moldovan Republic of Transnistria said on Saturday.
