Shortly before the collapse of the USSR, September 2, 1990, five on the left bank of the Dniester area of Moldova announced a Transdniestrian republic of the USSR, and then — independent Dniester Moldavian Republic (PMR) with headquarters in Tiraspol. In this case, the city of Bender and several surrounding villages in favor of the right-bank affiliation to TMR. The reason for this step was the statement of nationalist radicals in Chisinau Moldova to withdraw from the Soviet Union and its possible connection to Romania.
The Moldovan authorities did not agree with the decision of the Transnistrian deputies and tried to solve the problem by entering troops in the unrecognized republic. In 1992, Transnistria began an armed conflict, which lasted several months, until mid-July. As a result, Chisinau lost control of the left-bank areas, and Transnistria became virtually uncontrollable Chisinau territory, with all the attributes of statehood, including its own currency.
International recognition of Tiraspol did not get, but it is actively seeking. In the negotiations on the Transnistrian settlement involving Moldova and Transnistria — the sides of the conflict, the Russian Federation, Ukraine and the OSCE — as mediators, the European Union and the United States — as observers.
