The crisis in Ukraine is threatening to spill over into neighbouring Transnistria, a self-declared landlocked state between Ukraine and Moldova.

Yevgeny Shevchuk, the president of Transnistria, told Al Jazeera that the tensions in Ukraine could spark a civil war.

The pro-Russian state says it would be ready to take up arms if conflict reaches its land.

Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Transnistria.
