It seems that every country in eastern Europe with a Russian minority gets destabilised by them.

I mean the Soviet Union put them there for a reason.

And yet if we go by Putin’s own logic Romania should have the right to annex them.

You could also use his “this isn’t a real country” argument here. I’m struggling to understand why Moldova is a separate country from Romania – other than because the Russians – in typical trouble-maker mode – decided to invent Moldova in 1945.
Let’s call a spade and spade here. Most of the problems we’re dealing with here are the legacy of Russian colonialism. Pretty much everyone else decolonised decades ago. And the colonists who didn’t like it moved back to their own country. I know Russian likes to think it’s “special”. It really isn’t.

“I am sure that a lot of people in Ukraine even think that’s a good idea.”
Because it is a good idea. Blow the hell out of the small Russian force, then withdraw back to Ukraine so even the ramshackle Moldovan army just has to drive in and and repossess Transnistria without having to actually go to war with Russia

 Blow the hell out of the small Russian force

Don’t forget, Russia has nukes – thousands of them.
And, don’t assume that Russians will just lose graciously and withdraw
