Русский Приднестровье - Приднестровская Молдавская Республика[1]

Приднестровье — часть территории Молдавии, в основном по левому берегу реки Днестр (а также город Бендеры и пригород Тирасполя на правом берегу реки), населённая (согласно переписи 2004 г.) преимущественно молдаванами (32%) и великороссами и украинцами (59%). Контролируется самопровозглашённой Приднестровской Молдавской Республикой (провозглашена 2 сентября 1990). В официальных молдавских источниках левобережная часть Приднестровья именуется Stânga Nistrului, что означает «Левый берег Днестра».

Română Transnistria - Republica Moldovenească Nistreană
Transnistria (numită Stânga Nistrului de sursele oficiale moldoveneşti) este o regiune în Europa de est. Numele vine de la faptul că este aşezată în zona Moldovei din estul râului Nistru, pe malul stâng faţă de direcţia Nistrului. Numele de Transnistria este folosit de multe ori pentru a face referire la Republica Moldovenească Nistreană. Geografic acest lucru nu este absolut corect, Transnistria, o regiune geografică aflată de jure sub controlul autorităţilor de la Chişinău, cuprinde şi zone pe malul drept a Nistrului
English Transnistria - Pridnestrovian Moldovan Republic

Transnistria (also known as Pridnestrovie, officially Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, per the PMR constitution) is a territory within the internationally recognized boundaries of the Republic of ► Moldova in eastern Europe, bordering to ► Ukraine. Transnistria declared its independence as a separate republic of the U.S.S.R. on September 2, 1990. Subsequent to the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Pridnestrovian Moldovan Republic (PMR) has exercised de facto control over most of Transnistria. Its independence has not been recognized, and sovereignty over Transnistria continues to be an issue of contention.
