The British government has provided more than 3 billion in aid to Ukraine since Russia invaded its neighbor in late February, much of it devoted to weapons and other military hardware. Meanwhile, as the United States spearheaded efforts to arm Kiev, lawmakers recently passed a massive $ 40 billion aid package, bringing the total U.S. aid to about $ 54 billion since March.
Moldova’s Transnistria region – which had a brief skirmish with government forces in 1992 after the declaration of independence – has seen a string of mysterious explosions at military sites and government offices in recent weeks, raising fears that Ukraine’s war could spread to other countries. No actor has claimed responsibility for the blasts, which have drawn similar complaints from officials in Moldova, Ukraine, Russia and Transnistria, with each apparent attack provoking hostility designed to expand hostilities into a larger regional conflict.
