Passing through Tiraspol and Chisinau from Odessa to Bucharest

Hi, I am planning a trip n Ukraine and Romania and I would like to know if there are chances that I would have problems (having to bribe, being arrested...) in crossing the borders between Odessa and Tiraspol, then bewteen Tiraspol and Chisinau and then finally between Chisinau and Bucharest.

It is possible they'll ask for a bribe, but you certainly won't be arrested.

Moldova to Romania should not be a problem, I have done this many times, I take the bus from Chisinau to Bucharest

Thanks for your answers. I made the trip last month and in case someone else would like to know, here it what happened:
I first took the train from Odessa to Chisinau. I had an Ukrainian control at the Ukraine/Moldova-Transnistria border, but no Moldovan or Transnistrian control, though the train stopped in Tiraspol. Then I arrived in Chisinau, still no control. I had entered in Moldova illegally. The next day, I took the train to Bucharest the next day and in order not to have problem at the Moldova-Romania border, I first registered in the migration office in Chisinau, the same day, for free, without any problem. So I successfully passed the Moldova-Romania border.
