Breakaway Moldovan Region Of Transdniester Celebrates 30 Years Of 'Independence'

Transdniester, which declared independence from Moldova in 1990 amid fears that Chisinau would seek reunification with Romania as the Soviet Union fell apart, is marking the 30th anniversary of that declaration on September 2.

The conflict has been frozen since Russian troops stationed there during the Soviet era intervened on the side of the separatists in 1992 after a war in which about 1,000 people were killed.
