I can hardly find any more good info on Gagauzia lately, but Dispatch Gagauzia is a great source!
The vineyards in Gagauzia are what makes Moldova famous for wine in Eastern Europe— any why my Russian-speaking uncle thought, when I said I wanted to travel to Moldova to investigate Transnistrian politics, “You just want wine!”
Not strictly Transnistria, but they were allies during their respective fights for independence. New information on Transnistria is hard to come by, so why not take in the rest of multiethnic Moldova? :)
