Photo #1 from Neubiberg, Germany by Freistaat made on 2017-03-24 22:17 for Sola

What is it like to live in a country that doesn't exist? The about 400,000 people in Transnistria do so and they do quite well.

Transnistria is a small piece of land on the eastern bank of the river Dniester. It officially belongs to the Republic of Moldova.

Though in fact it's autonomous since 1990, no other country accepts the independence, not even big brother Russia. Yet Moscow has control.

Local administration is just a puppet on a string. There are Russian troops in the area to "guard former Soviet ammunition storages". 🤔

Photo #5 from Neubiberg, Germany by Freistaat made on 2017-03-24 22:17 for Sola

Local "government" is called "supreme soviet", just like in the bad old times. Until 1992 there were violent fights for Transnistria.

For more that 25 years now it's a so called frozen conflict. Chances are low to solve it. As long as it exists Moldova can't join the EU.

Photo #7 from Neubiberg, Germany by Freistaat made on 2017-03-24 22:17 for Sola

The Transnistrian economy is controlled by an oligarchic company. It owns industries, gas stations, supermarkets, hotels, a football club...

Its name is "Sheriff" And it's present everywhere in the "capital" Tiraspol.

Photo #9 from Neubiberg, Germany by Freistaat made on 2017-03-24 22:17 for Sola

This is the "border" between Transnistria and the rest of Moldova. There are customs officers and international peace keeping troops.

Hammer and sickle - still the most important symbols for the oligarchic-communist regime in Transnistria.

Must have been fascinating to be there, why did you choose to visit?

It was due to my job. A unique occasion that I didn’t want to miss.

What were the people like?

FreistaatAuthor
Escape 🌹, very modern. They lived their live like in every other Eastern European country. But it was hard to find some that spoke English. Russian was much more present.

Jabba Ree 🌹
Freistaat, I think that's like an official language. Every photo you posted has sentences in Russian. Not a single word in Moldovan language (or how's it called)
FreistaatAuthor
Jabba Ree 🌹, I think Romanian is the official language in Moldova.
Jabba Ree 🌹
Freistaat, de jure, but what about de facto?

Transni wut? I can't imagine what language they speak.

FreistaatAuthor
Russian and Romanian. By the way: Romanian sounds very much like the Latin that old Julius Cesar spoke.

Lovelisco
Freistaat, kewl. I heard that Romanian is like Spanish. But it is totally different for me 🤔. And hard to learn.

How modern are the robots? Do they have any bending units?

Robot still means human labour there. Russian tradition. You know the origin of the word robot, don’t you?

Freistaat The term robot first appears in Karel's play (science fiction) Čapek : R. U. R. (Rossum's Universal Robots). The word was created by his brother Josef from the Czech word "robota" which means "work, task, chore". Isn't it?

Interesting place. Traveling offers the possibility to move through time. I traveled in the mountains of Kossovo, next to Albania in 1985. I had this feeling of being in another time capsule, like back in 1700s.

I had the same impression when traveling in the Turkish part of Kurdistan some years ago.

Looks like those people haven't got any progress since the collapse of the USSR
FreistaatAuthor
They are not poor. They live their lives. But it feels like a political twilight zone.

Is this an open for tourist? Can we go there

FreistaatAuthor
Yes it is in general. But you have to book a guide who organizes all the necessary permissions.

Bullshit article!!! No words of truth about Pridnestrovje not Trinistria!!!! Fake post👎👎👎
Tadas
Эдуард, write the truth then
FreistaatAuthor
That’s an interesting perspective. I was there myself and wrote about my experiences. Why do you doubt my article? Not even mother Russia does recognize Transnistria (or Pridnestrovje, as you name it) as a state.
10
Эдуард
Tadas, truth is not the same! I have my own truth! People there stand with weapons in their arms for this life. Mostly, they like it! Most of them is Russian speaking. They don't want to become Romanian! Their life there is not convinient like in Europe countries because of isolation from Moldavian government and Ukrainian governmet. But Russia still helping with food, technologies and arms. I have not much time for long discussion here. So, if you want your own truth, go on there, live there! as long as you can, watch there, talk to people, make a photo & video as much as you can to post it here your review with your own impressions and your own opinion!!!
FreistaatAuthor
Эдуард, but you called me a liar. And now you claim that you have your “own truth”. Hm. Maybe your first comment was a bit too harsh?
10
Эдуард
Freistaat, where are you were, dude?!? Don't make me laugh!!! lol Typical fiction from bad journalist with fake stamps and some old pictures from internet!!!
FreistaatAuthor
Эдуард, again you are calling me a liar? Poor boy. How about learning some manners? Is that the way your mother raised her son, calling truthful people liars?

Awakened
Freistaat, are you dumb ? He is just a "business man" and cryptomlner 😂

FreistaatAuthor
Awakened, I know that he is. But he seems to be somebody who likes to call people liars too. Some kind of Putin fanboy, I guess.

Braulio 🥂=😊=🛫=🏖️
Freistaat, he doesn't have enough time for long discussions, just enough for insults, he needs to stay away from this platform, and go to one that can give him a crash course of maners..

Jabba Ree 🌹
Эдуард, все фото принадлежат этому человеку, если Вы не поняли. Он был там и всё видел своими глазами. И к сведению, он не строит из себя какого-то журналиста, не знаю с чего вы взяли это, но это не так. В любом случае, будьте вежливы к пользователям или получите бан от администрации. Удачного Вам дня.

Эдуард, Freistaat is an honest and good person, there is no reason for you to try to insult him. If you have a different opinion from his, then discuss it, but stop being rude and irrational.
