Ceremonies and commemoration manifestations take place all over Moldova today in the memory of the ones, who fell in the so-called Dniester war.
The clashes started as a detachment of Cossacks based on the left bank of the Dniester attacked the station of Moldovan police in the town of Dubasari. They took 32 police officers as prisoners.
The inhabitants from the nearby villages rose in their defense. Fighting for Moldova’s sovereignty cost the lives of many.
Today, the veterans, their relatives and the state officials lay flowers at monuments dedicated to the heroes fallen in the Dniester war.
