ABOUT THE THEME
Bender (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈbender]), also known as Bendery (Russian: Бендеры, tr. Bendery, IPA: [bʲɪnˈdɛrɨ]; Ukrainian: Бендери, Bendery) and Tighina (Romanian pronunciation: [tiˈɡina]), is a city within the internationally recognized borders of Moldova under de facto control of the unrecognized Transnistria Republic (PMR) since 1992. Located on the right (western) bank of the river Dniester in the historical region of Bessarabia, together with its suburb Proteagailovca, the city forms a municipality, which is separate from Transnistria according to the Moldovan law. Bender is located in the buffer zone established at the end of the 1992 War of Transnistria. Read more..
