Abstract : The author describes the background and conduct of the recent civil war between the former Soviet Republic of Moldova and the break-away region of Trans Dniester. This conflict traces its beginnings to deep ethnic tensions and is notable for its proclivity to draw in outside involvement, to include forced Russian involvement deemed undesirable by Moscow herself. The author concludes that this situation is not unique but may be typical of future Russian ethnic problems, both internally and around the periphery of the old Soviet state....
