Bender, also known as Bendery and Tighina, is a city within the internationally recognized borders of Moldova under de facto control of the unrecognized Transnistria Republic since 1992. It is located on the right bank of the river Dniester in the historical region of Bessarabia. Together with its suburb Proteagailovca, the city forms a municipality, which is separate from Transnistria according to the Moldovan law. Bender is located in the buffer zone established at the end of the 1992 War of Transnistria.While the Joint Control Commission has overriding powers in the city, Transnistria has de facto administrative control.NameFirst mentioned in 1408 as Тягянякяча in a document in Old Slavonic, the town was known in the Middle Ages as Tighina in Moldavian sources and later as Bender in Ottoman sources.
