Stuck in time

Transnistria, a self-proclaimed state on a sliver of land between Ukraine and the river Dniester, has fought for recognition for the past 28 years. The state, which had a large Russian population, hoped to form a country that could remain part of the USSR. They seems stuck in a bygone Soviet-era; a statue of Vladimir Lenin overlooks the main parliament building, Transnistrian currency has images of Soviet generals printed on it and even the people within the country seem stuck in time.
