 Moldova's prime minister has said she is "very worried" about a potential Russian invasion of her country, adding: "Nobody is safe".

"It’s a hypothetical scenario for now, but if the military actions move further into the southwestern part of Ukraine and toward Odesa then, of course, we are very worried," Natalia Gavrilița told CNN on Sunday.

"We are very worried, especially considering that troops are on the territory of the secessionist Transnistria region," Ms Gavrilița said. “We are doing everything possible to maintain peace and stability and to ensure that the fighting does not escalate."

She added: "If a country can start an annexation war without any regard for international law, then in this sense, nobody is safe.

"I think a lot of countries are worried."
