Does Transnistria move into Moldova or inside out?

English // 11:26, 5 декабря 2009 // 2041
The prospects of the Moldavian-Transnistrian settlement in simple people's eyes.

Last weekend I and two girls were invited to the Birthday party by our classmate who lives at the Moldavian town Kaushany. There was double holiday – Birthday and meeting of graduates. The party was excellent - heart-to-heart talks while cooking salads, making up and making hair-do, looking at the birthday girl’s presents, big celebratory table. It was accompanied by jokes and the ringing laughter. However, besides of entertainments, I had an occasion to fall in thinking about a serious theme in Kaushany.

The first several toasts have been devoted the birthday girl. After certain quantity of spirits drank, conversations about the policy begin. During this table debates I have heard a lot of interesting and surprising things about Transnistria from people of Republic Moldova.  As there were representatives of Transnistria at the table, the theme has concerned comparisons life quality on the left and the right banks of Dniester. Of course, nobody appealed to indicators of gross national product, average wages through the republic or other macro-economic indicators. Life and mode of life were spoken by the ordinary citizen.

So, I was stricken, I consider, by the main phrase of all conversation said to us by the Moldavian guy: «You live in the state which takes care of its citizens».It meant the following. There are no the central heating hot water in Kaushany which is the main town of a district for more than 20 years! Sometimes I'm very much angry, when hot water is disconnected for a week or for two, and my contemporaries don't understand it to be there. Sometimes I'm very much angry, when hot water is disconnected for a week or for two, and my contemporaries don't understand it to be there. Now there is even cold water constantly in Kaushany. In 2005 it was turn on only for some hours in day. It is necessary 800 euro (it is minimum) to place the separate system of heating into house or flat. It is clear, any citizen have no such sum that is why people have to use electric fires.

I've learnt that many Kaushaners had worked in Bendery, daily had gone there. As they said, we, Transnistrian girls, seemed to be such «capital features», living in a cultural, prospering city.
As they said, we, Transnistrian girls, seemed to be such «capital features», living in a cultural, prospering city. Culture level has noted separately it is the look of Tiraspol and Bendery, quantity of cultural-entertainment centers. Young guys and girls go for a walk, go in cafe, theatre in Transnistria. Even the Transnistrian bread seemed to be more tasty the Moldavian for the Kaushaners. These are simple Moldavian citizens' words.

In general, when we returned to Tiraspol I had a serious occasion to reflect, to compare and to analyze. Not without reason it is said that only republic capital - the city of Kishinev - lives in a European way in Moldova. In many small villages people don't understand when they had money last time. There was a returning to the natural economy. Certainly, nobody says there is all right and is not problems in Transnistria. But nevertheless…

The Moldavian politicians, since the establishment of the Dniester Moldavian Republic to present day, have spoken about the returning of Transnistria under jurisdiction of Republic Moldova, have called Transnistrians separatists. But having heard of simple Moldavian citizens' living I would like to ask the main question: so who moves where?  Does Transnistria move into Moldova or Moldova into Transnistria?
