Transdnistr is a country that doesn't exist. At least to some it doesn't. To others, mainly it's inhabitants, it certainly does.

Transdnitr is a strip of land in Moldova. It declared itself independant some two decades ago. It has its own army, it's own currency, it's own president but the international community doesn't recognise it as an independant country.

This man was travelling for hours by himself. God knows where he went, god knows what he was thinking.
