Bender city

A room for meetings in one of the military areas of the Bender City. Sasha was born and raised in Hristovaia, and at age 21, he decided to interrupt his studies and was drafted into the Transnistrian army. He says: “My dreams are pretty simple and banal: I want to be happy, to have a profitable job, to achieve financial independence. After my military service, I plan to finish my studies, to rent an apartment and to find a job for the first time, nothing special. To be honest, I did not think this is where I would live permanently. I thought about Europe, Canada, but there is so much to be done for this. The army for me is wasted time. Actually, there are some positive aspects: I became stronger both physically and morally, learned a lot about people, began to appreciate my time and my loved ones.”
