Summary/Abstract: The article tackles the issue of socio-economic development of right and left banks of the Dniester and indicates their differences and similarities in this regard. The key argument is that neither Tiraspol nor Chisinau has been able to gain the sustainability of their financial and economic systems, and it led to their increasing dependency on external assistance after 2008. Such dependency is intertwined with the political system of patron-client relationships in the region. So, the foreign actors have been substantially contributing to (geo)political status quo in the region, also in the Transnistrian conflict settlement. Besides, absence of economic attractiveness of Moldova is hardly a good basis for achieving any progress in the conflict resolution, even if system of foreign assistance for Tiraspol is far from being sufficient and effective.
