Transnistria looks to follow Crimea example

Russian-speaking breakaway region of Moldova is urging Russian President Vladimir Putin to annex the territory.

    There are growing calls in Transnistria to follow Crimea in joining Russia.

    The breakway pro-Russian territory in Molvdova went through a civil war after the collapse of the Soviet Union to preserve its linguistic and cultural ties with Russia.

    While there is support for joining Russia within the region, western officials are strongly opposed.
