Russia Vice-President Rutskoy, in a speech delivered on the main channel of the Russian television, called for all Soviet forces in Tiraspol to storm Bendery. This possibility caused fears among the Russian-speaking population that it would be excluded from most aspects of public life. Over time, the Russian 14th army formally engaged in the war, as allies of Transnistria to defeat the Moldovan forces. [34], Shortly before the escalation of the conflict in late June 1992, Romania provided military support to Moldova by supplying weaponry, ammunition and armed vehicles,[19][35] and also by sending military advisers and training Moldovan military and police forces.

[12] This opposition to the new trends and potential future policies was manifested in a more visible way in Transnistria, where, unlike the rest of the MSSR, ethnic Moldovans (39.9%) were outnumbered by the combined figure of Russians and Ukrainians (53.8%) as per the 1989 Census in Transnistria, largely due to higher immigration during the Soviet Era. [21][22] A significant portion of the personnel of the Russian 14th Army were local conscripts and officers that had been given local residence. According to John Mackinlay and Peter Cross, who conducted a study based on casualty reports, significant numbers of both Transnistrians and Moldovans fought together on both sides of the conflict.
