The Transnistria War (Romanian: Războiul din Transnistria; Russian: Война в Приднестровье, romanized: Voyna v Pridnestrovye) was an armed conflict that broke out on 2 November 1990 in Dubăsari (Russian: Дубосса́ры, romanized: Dubossary) between pro-Transnistria (Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic [PMR]) forces, including the Transnistrian Republican Guard, militia and neo-Cossack units (which were supported by elements of the Russian 14th Army), and pro-Moldovan forces, including Moldovan troops and police. Fighting intensified on 1 March 1992 and, alternating with ad hoc ceasefires, lasted throughout the spring and early summer of 1992 until a ceasefire was declared on 21 July 1992, which has held. The conflict is sometimes known as the Moldo-Russian war (Romanian: Războiul moldo-rus) mostly in Moldova and Romania.
Every year in Moldova, events and commemorations are organized on March 2, the Memory and Gratitude Day ("Ziua Memoriei și Recunoștinței"), to honor those who fell in the 1992 armed conflict, to defend integrity and independence of the Republic of Moldova. As a reminder, this civil war is an armed conflict which opposed, from March 2 to July 21, 1992, the Transdniestrian army (supported by Russia) to the Moldovan armed forces, just after the independence of the country after the outbreak of the USSR, on the banks of the Dniester River. The conflict ended in a ceasefire and Transnistria maintained its de facto independence (with Russian troops on its territory) and returned to the news following the current invasion of the Russian army in neighboring Ukraine..
