Error alert!!! This one from the Republic of Moldova Most of the Moldovan territory was a part of the Principality of Moldavia from the 14th century until 1812, when it was ceded to theRussian Empire by the Ottoman Empire (to which Moldavia was a vassal state) and became known as Bessarabia. In 1856, southern Bessarabia was returned to Moldavia, which three years later united withWallachia to form Romania, but Russian rule was restored over the whole of the region in 1878. During the 1917 Russian Revolution, Bessarabia briefly became an autonomous and then independent Moldavian Democratic Republic until it was integrated into Romaniain 1918 following a vote of its assembly. The decision was disputed by Soviet Russia, which, in 1924, allowed the establishment, within the Ukrainian SSR, of a Moldavian autonomous republic (MASSR) on partial Moldovan-inhabited territories to the east of the Dniester. In 1940, as a consequence of theMolotov–Ribbentrop Pact, Romania was compelled to cede Bessarabia to the Soviet Union, leading to the creation of theMoldavian Soviet Socialist Republic(Moldavian SSR), which included the greater part of Bessarabia and the westernmost strip of the former MASSR. On 27 August 1991, as part of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Moldavian SSRdeclared independence and took the name Moldova. The current Constitution of Moldovawas adopted in 1994.
