Română Moldova - Republica Moldova

Republica Moldova este un stat situat în estul Europei, între România (vest) şi Ucraina (est). Graniţa cu România urmează aproape în întregime râul Prut şi pe o distanţă foarte scurtă Dunărea. Republica Moldova are ieşire la Dunăre pe o fâşie de 200 m la extrema sa sudică (Giurgiuleşti). Republica Moldova s-a aflat sub ocupaţie rusească în perioada 1812-1918, iar între 1940 şi 1991 a avut statutul de republică unională în cadrul URSS. O dată cu dezmembrarea Uniunii Sovietice, Republica Moldova a devenit stat independent. Republica Moldova are un teritoriu în stânga Nistrului (Transnistria), locuit în proporţii relativ egale de români, ruşi şi ucraineni. Acesta este o rămăşiţă a RSSA Moldoveneşti din perioada interbelică. În 1990, odată cu izbucnirea conflictului din Transnistria, autorităţile de la Chişinău au pierdut controlul acestei regiuni, care şi-a autoproclamat independenţa sub numele de Republica Moldovenească Nistreană.
