There's a section "Political status" and there's "Disputed status", both about roughly the same topic. Merge? --illythr (talk) 19:14, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
The later was just created by splitting the lead in two, which I've reverted. If we want to move some of this content out of the lead, I agree that it should go to the "Political status" section. TDL (talk) 19:39, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Why is Crimea's status dealt with differently than Transnistria? The article in Wikipedia on Crimea makes it clear in many ways that the status of the territory is in dispute. For Transnistria, however, an entirely different format is used making this point far less clear. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:16, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
Starting with these IP edits, and continued with recent edits, the citizenship information turned into a glut of stats, and a very long passage from the Moldovan constitution. I'm assuming double citizenship means dual citizenship. The current stats seem to ignore Transnistria citizenship, and I don't think they help the reader. Can someone who understands the sources simplify? CMD (talk) 14:26, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
'Republica Moldovenească Nistreană (rusă: Приднестровская Молдавская Республика,
ucraineană: Придністровська Молдавська Республіка) este numele dat
de forțele separatiste entității politice autoproclamate din Transnistria.
Under 'Political Status' we read this, "Transnistria is considered by the vast majority of countries as a legal part of the Republic of Moldova. Only the partially recognised states of South Ossetia and Abkhazia recognize it as a sovereign entity [...]" I suggest this version, "'Transnistria is not recognised by any UN member state. Only the partially recognised states of South Ossetia and Abkhazia recognize it as a sovereign entity [...]'"
Transnistria is just a breakaway region is not a state by no means. It's not recognized by Russia or UN either..2QW4 (talk) 11:25, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
"Transnistria" is a somewhat ambiguous term meaning both the region "beyond the Dniester" and the PMR. The latter certainly is a state, albeit a politically unrecognized one (a "quasi-state", so to speak). However, the only problem with your suggestion is that it adds a third "recognize(d)" into the line. --illythr (talk) 13:39, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
"Partially recognized" has been fought for tooth and nail by those seeking to paint the Tiraspol regime as completely legitimate. "Not recognized by any U.N. member" should be sufficient and succinct. I mean, really, even Russia doesn't have the gumption to recognize it after conquering it, providing $billions in energy subsidies, and happily watching as the bulk of Moldova's industrial assets get sold off to the Russian oligarchy.

Transnistria is not even "partially recognized", the text already says so. The proposed changes say the same thing, but with an additional "recognized" close to the other two. --illythr (talk) 12:59, 1 January 2014 (UTC)
Done without adding another "recognize". Hope this alleviates OP's concern. --illythr (talk) 14:05, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
It seems over the top to capitalize the entire expression "Transnistria autonomous territorial unit with special legal status". It is a description, not a title, cf. "the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia", in which capitals are used only where it makes sense to do so. Looking at the article on the Moldovan designation, I see that the expressions in the three principal languages of the area are not similarly capitalized.
If nobody comes back on this soon, I shall alter both articles accordingly.
As someone who knows nothing about Transnistria, there is a lot about this article that is unclear. Who in Transnistria wants to join Russia and why? Is it the large Russian minority, as one would imagine? When and why did so many Russians end up there?Sylvain1972 (talk) 15:28, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
Actually presence of Slavs in the early medieval period and colonization of Transnistria during the Russian Empire period are mentioned. Do you think that more details should be given? Alæxis¿question? 20:26, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
The entire area had an overlap of Romanian and Russian, including pockets of Romanian settlement further east. Also, significant areas of German settlement. Russian interests have been portraying Transnistria as wanting to join Russia ever since Victor Alksnis sent in Antyufeyev and his OMON forces. VєсrumЬа ►TALK 03:12, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
