A man takes a break from fishing in a small pond to smoke a cigarette in Tiraspol, capital of Transnistria. Also known as Trans-Dniestr or Transdniestria, Transnistria, located mostly on a strip of land between the Dniester River and the eastern Moldovan border with Ukraine, broke away from Moldova in 1990 and although a de facto independent state, governed by the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (PMR), is not recognised internationally.
