Position of the Transnistrian side

The territory to the East of the Dniester River never belonged neither to Romania, nor to its predecessors, such as the Principality of Moldavia. This territory was split off from Ukrainian SSR in a political maneuver of the USSR to become a seed of the Moldavian SSR. (A similar example of a Soviet expansionist maneuver was the Finnish Democratic Republic). Transnistria ceded itself from Moldavian SSR before the Dissolution of the Soviet Union. Since Moldova declared independence of the Soviet Union, all political arrangements made within the Soviet Union must be considered void. The river Dniestr (in Polish and Russian; Nistru in Romanian; Дністер, Dnister in Ukrainian; Tyras in Latin; also known as Dniester) is a river in Eastern Europe. ...

Position of the Moldovan side

Ethnic Romanians have lived on the left side of the Dniester River for centuries, even though the region itslef was not formally part of the Principality of Moldavia, the entire territory did not form a part of another greater political entity either before its incorporation into the Russian Empire in 1792. The fact that the Moldovan SSR received the territory from the Ukrainian SSR does not mean that Moldova has diminished rights to the territory as in the Soviet political reshuffeling Moldova also lost the Budjak, Northern Bukovina, and Hertsa regions, and after the breakup of the USSR Moldova and Ukraine have signed a treaty recognizing the current borders. The current Transnistrian government is completely illegitimate and cannot be viewed as the rightful representative of the region's populace. Transnistria cannot exist as an independent political entity but must be reintegrated into Moldova. The river Dniestr (in Polish and Russian; Nistru in Romanian; Дністер, Dnister in Ukrainian; Tyras in Latin; also known as Dniester) is a river in Eastern Europe. ...
