Transnistria locationTransnistria (aka Trans-Dniestr or Transdniestria) is a partially recognized state sandwiched on a strip of land between Moldova to the west and Ukraine to the east.

Independence was declared (from Moldova) in 1990 and a war fought in 1992. This Telegraph photo essay gives a good idea of what is going on.
