From Wikipedia

Transnistria (also called Trans-Dniestr or Transdniestria) is a breakaway territory located mostly on a strip of land between the River Dniester and the eastern Moldovan border with Ukraine. Since its declaration of independence in 1990, and especially after the War of Transnistria in 1992, it is governed as the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (PMR, also known as Pridnestrovie), a state with limited recognition, which claims the territory to the east of the River Dniester, the city of Bender and its surrounding localities located on the west bank. The Republic of Moldova does not recognise PMR and considers most territory of Transnistria as part of Moldova - as Autonomous territorial unit with special legal status Transnistria (Unitatea teritorială autonomă cu statut juridic special Transnistria), or Stînga Nistrului ("Left Bank of the Dniester").

Transdniestria - Places That Don't Exist

Europe's Black Hole
December 2006
It's a criminal breakaway republic, recognised by no other nation and isolated from the rest of the world. Now dissident voices from Transnistria are speaking out against the nationalist regime.

The Other Moldova
March 2004
The breakaway Republic of Transnistria looks set to be the cause of more tensions between Russia and Moldova. We bring back a report looking at the renegade province. When the Soviet Union collapsed, Eastern Moldova broke away from the rest of the country and moved closer to Russia. The self styled Republic of Transnisitria is recognised by no other nation. It relies on 1,200 stationed Russian troops for protection and its criminal gangs have moved into Moldova. Now Moldova is pushing for a Russia withdrawal from Transnistria. "Transnistria is a festering criminal sore which is infecting all its neighbours," states expert Dr Galeotti.

Surviving The Deportation
This documentary gathers the confessions of two survivors of the gypsy deportation to Transnistria during the Second World War. It's a portrait of their actual life as they live forgotten by their own children who left Romania to work abroad. A life of quiet pain in spite of others disbelief, but conciliated at the end.
