Het laatste communistische bolwerk van Europa
Op 2 september viert Transnistrië zijn Onafhankelijkheidsdag, het is dan 25 jaar geleden dat het gebied zich afscheidde van Moldavië. Na het uiteenvallen van de Sovjet-Unie verklaarde Moldavië zich onafhankelijk. De overwegend Russische bevolking van Transnistrië weigerde deze onafhankelijkheidsverklaring echter te ondersteunen. Sindsdien leidt het staatje een zelfstandig, doch geïsoleerd bestaan, ingeklemd tussen Oekraïne en Moldavië. Niemand erkent het. Door de toenemende westerse oriëntatie van Moldavië en Oekraïne is het gebied voor Rusland steeds belangrijker geworden.
Sander de Wilde rapporteert vanuit het gebied. In het straatbeeld is veel communistische symboliek terug te vinden en in de vlag en het wapen van het staatje zijn de hamer en sikkel opgenomen. Tevens zijn veel bedrijven aan de staat gelieerd. Het bekendste voorbeeld hiervan is het bedrijf Sheriff, dat praktisch alles in Transnistrië in bezit lijkt te hebben, variërend van de plaatselijke kaasfabrieken, supermarkten, telefonieaanbieder tot een profvoetbalclub.
