“If the forest grows, the motherland will prosper” or something like this is written on this sign in Transnistria.Hirsche


About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a journalist, a spy or a hobo.

    It’s actually more like “Growing the forest is serving the motherland”. And I’m pretty sure that Transnistria might have the forests but not much of prosperity.

    • But they have very fertile soil, it seemed to me.
      Transnistria actually did not look particularly poor to me, at least not compared with other Eastern European countries. There is a clear city/village divide with the latter looking poorer, but that’s the case even in some Eastern EU countries. And then there is of course the big gap between rich and normal/poor, but that’s also not unique to Transnistria.

      Isn’t that more like “home”, rather than “motherland”? Motherland should be something like Rodina (Родина), shouldn’t it?
