The status of Transnistria is rather complicated. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia threatened to take away the land between the Dniester River and Ukraine if Moldova claimed independence. That land is now called 'Transnistria'. A war and a decades long frozen conflict later, we ask ourself the question:
"Who really controls Transnistria?"
Мафия Kошек - Cat mafia
Everywhere you go in the country, you see the gangs gathering.
In Khrushchyovka's (commie blocks)
On the streets
Or hiding, so you are never safe
The cats drive expensive cars
And hold a monopoly on trade
The cat gangs violently harass people to keep control
Have foreign military support
While some live in luxury, others try to make the best of their life in poverty
But they control the entire country
But also - the hearts of the people
