Young Transnistrians drink homemade wine as they gather in a park during their summer break from university. The communist hammer and sickle emblem, still featuring in Transnistria's flag looms in the darkness behind them. 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.
