Transnistria - Russian Shenanigans - Soviet Stronghold

FRANCE 24 English
Published on Feb 2, 2018

Transnistria is a rebel republic inside Moldova in the far east of Europe, born from the ashes of the Soviet Union.

More than 25 years after a peace agreement was signed in 1992, the self-declared state has not been recognised by a single UN country.
Transnistria acts as if it is independent: it has its own government, military, currency, and national anthem.
But 1,500 Russian soldiers are still based there – in fact, it is the only country still proudly displaying the hammer and sickle on its flag.
