Transnistria { 33 images } Created 28 Sep 2020

Transnistria, with a predominately Russian-speaking population situated on a narrow strip of land between the Dniester River and the Ukrainian border, has its own government, currency, and military, but its independence is not recognized by the international community. It broke away from Moldova in the early 1990s and has requested to join the Russian Federation, but Russia has rejected the request. Internationally, it is still recognized as belonging to Moldova.

These pictures were taken during a short day-trip to Transnistria, which I made by bus from Moldova on September 10, 2016.
