Transnistria!
Transnistria!

You border on the the Dneister!
Your land is a 400km long valley.
Your chief export is cognac!

You're a communist republic!
You're a red regime!

"Across the Nistria" is probably more accurate.

Transnistria is a former part of Moldova, which fought a very real war with Moldova in the course of USSR's dissolution and is currently a kind of Russian protectorate.

They voted for joining Russia, like, 10 times, through the years. Russia doesn't particularly wants them. One of the reasons may be because they have no common border with Russia. At all.

Transnistria would vote for joining EU, US or aliens if they had a choice. They don't. Nobody wants them. It's that kind of shiathole.

*shrug* not an unusual tale in post-Soviet space.

Subby's not sure that's even a real place

I live ~ 800 km / 500 miles from Transnistria. I didn't even know that Moldova (which is only two country borders from me) was a real country 5 years ago, and I only learned about Transnistria about a year ago - mind you, this breakaway territory was brought to existence in 1990.

It's not that I'm bad from geography. It's that the geopolitical importance of these two countries is zero. It's like Somalia without pirates.
 
2014-04-27 03:43:23 PM
Russia not even good an annexed anyway. The way to do it is the way Hawaii was. Only allow the soldiers you garrisoned on the islands to vote and before long you have a state.

Grahor: Transnistria is a former part of Moldova, which fought a very real war with Moldova in the course of USSR's dissolution and is currently a kind of Russian protectorate.


With Soviet flags and everything.

They voted for joining Russia, like, 10 times, through the years. Russia doesn't particularly wants them. One of the reasons may be because they have no common border with Russia. At all.

I dunno, having an excuse to annex a fair chunk of southern Ukraine to establish a common border may suddenly make Transnistria look attractive to Putin.

(Not that he needs an excuse, but the people who take care of the paperwork might like something to put on the forms.)

It's not.  That's its main economic asset.  If you wanted to go somewhere where nobody has jurisdiction, that would be the place, except that right now, you can't go there.

While the wikipedia article is interesting, the wikitravel article is even more so.

I'm pretty sure Moldova is the most irrelevant country in the world.

Wow! Who else is familiar with Nagorno-Karabak besides us? It's true, nothing is obscure on fark. IIRC, mostly border squabbles and the occasional missing helicopter mostly.

It's the bit of Azerbaijan that doesn't have any Azeris in it anymore.  The Caucausus make the Balkans look civilised.
