Lenin at Parliament in Tiraspol

On a visit to Moldova in 2011, I crossed over the border to the separate but unrecognized government of Transdniester. Transdniester is a long and narrow strip of Moldova, bordered on the west by the Dniester River and on the East by Ukraine. Tiraspol is the capital of Transdniester, and like the entire territory, has a large Russian presence. Typical of that presence is this image of the Parliament Building with its large outside statue of Lenin.
