Tensions Are High in the Tiny Repressed Region of Transnistria

30 Mar 2014  |  www.vice.com
Transnistria, an unrecognized quasi-communist state between Moldova and Ukraine, is experiencing heightened tensions amid Russian military maneuvers in the region. With over 2,000 Russian troops stationed there, NATO's supreme allied commander in Europe, General Philip Breedlove, suggests Russia could quickly move into Transnistria. The local parliament has expressed a desire to join Russia, reflecting close ties since a 2006 referendum where 97 percent of voters supported joining Russia. Tiraspol, the capital, displays a Soviet-era atmosphere, with a struggling economy heavily reliant on Russian subsidies and plagued by smuggling activities. Moldova's Prime Minister Iurie Leanca expresses concerns over the region's future and the potential for instability. Despite the government's pro-Russian stance, not all locals are eager for Russian rule, with some preferring EU integration. The article concludes with a sense of inevitability regarding Russia's westward push, potentially affecting Transnistria in the future.
