Transnistria is an unrecognised autonomous republic located on east bank of the Dnister river bordering Ukraine and the territory controlled by the Moldovan government on the other side of the river. It has a population of 550,000, a mix of ethnic Moldovans, Russians, Ukrainians and a few tiny minorities of Poles, Bulgarians and Gaugaz. The Moldovan government regards Transnistria as an autonomous region within its own authority, but does not control the area. This situation is one of the many frozen conflicts that are the result of the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991.
