First ruble, 1994
The first Transnistrian ruble was introduced in 1994 by the Transnistrian Republican Bank as the national currency of the unrecognised state of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic. The currency consisted of Soviet and Russian banknotes of dated 1961-1992 with a special adhesive stamp. These notes replaced unstamped Soviet and Russian banknotes at par.

Second ruble, 1994-2000
The first, provisional issues were replaced in August 1994 by a new ruble, equal to 1000 old rubles. This currency consisted solely of banknotes and suffered from high inflation, necessitating the issuance of notes overstamped with higher denominations. Although issued in 1994, some notes (50 to 5000 rubles) were issued dated 1993.

Third ruble, 2000-In 2000, a new ruble was introduced at a rate of 1 new ruble = 1 000 000 old rubles. This new currency consists of both coins and banknotes. The current exchange rate is about 10 TR to the Euro.

Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov was the fourth and last generalissimus of the Russian Empire. One of the few great generals in history who never lost a battle, he was famed for his manual The Science of Victory and noted for the sayings "Train hard, fight easy", "The bullet is a fool, the bayonet is a fine chap", "Perish yourself but rescue your comrade!". He taught his soldiers to attack instantly and decisively: 'attack with the cold steel - push hard with the bayonet!' His soldiers adored him. He joked with the men, called the common soldiers 'brother', and shrewdly presented the results of detailed planning and careful strategy as the work of inspiration.
