Just when I thought I would go crazy, I’m now enjoying life more than ever before.
It turns out that REAL democracy is actually pretty cool…
Despite the propaganda that you might’ve heard, Moldova isn’t “Romanian territory,” and Pridnestrovie isn’t “Russian territory.”
As far as I am aware, this is the first time in history that Transnistria has ever appeared on a fictional TV program or movie (in English).
The story of the ghost buses full of fraudulent voters from Transnistria “ruining” the Moldovan elections seems destined to linger on forever…
Instead of me constantly talking about Pridnestrovie, I thought it worthwhile to let all of you see the country.
In the “old days,” all three were part of the Soviet Union’s power grid, specifically what is now called the IPS or the Единая энергетическая система.
What this effectively means is that all three countries’ energy systems (both natural gas and electricity) are still hooked up together although operated separately.
A good ol’ American dad with his two cornfed boys visited Tiraspol and Bender… and had a wonderful time.
Pridnestrovie is a peaceful, multicultural society where all the different groups get along and have a generally positive attitude towards one another. That’s the official finding of the United Nations.
I certainly like Pridnestrovie. But maybe I’m crazy. Maybe I’m weird. Maybe I’m a total idiot who doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Honestly, it mostly makes me laugh (but it also makes me a bit angry) when I read clickbait shit like Russia Perfecting Its Elections Interference Toolkit in Moldova.
The headline sets you up to hear about some really dastardly deeds being perpetrated by Russia, but the jock who wrote this sadly fails to deliver.
