Transnistria is a region in eastern Moldova. It is a narrow strip 120 mi long but only 20 mi wide.

The people who live there are mostly Russian and Ukrainian.

Geopolitical status[edit]

The region wants to leave the country of Moldova and become an independent country. In the early 1990s a republic was declared but it has not been recognized by most countries in the world. A peace accord with Moldova was signed in 1997 giving the region more power to rule itself.
