After a four months lasting war, Transnistria declared independence from Moldova. To this date, it is still not recognized as a country and considered by the international community as being part of Moldova. My project explores the current social and economic situation of the young generation and their perspectives in a country that, where freedom of press is not guaranteed, power is corrupt and a horrifying financial situation with an average monthly salary is less than 150 Euro. Many look afar to flee from the restrictions of a small country, but the possibilities are scarce. Moscow and St. Petersburg are one of the only possibilities, not only because of the language but also because of Russia being unofficially the main supporter of the Soviet-style government. Transnistrian university degrees are not widely accepted and job opportunities are limited inside the small country. In addition, people are often unable to leave because of their financial situation.
