Thousands of Moldovan supporters of the country's unification with Romania rallied on March 25 in the center of Moldova's capital, Chisinau. Pro-unionist groups from Moldova, Romania, and expatriate communities organized the event. On March 27, 1918, Bessarabia -- a region partially corresponding with modern-day Moldova -- proclaimed a union with Romania, which lasted until 1940. Ethnic Moldovans and Romanians share the same language, but Moldovan President Igor Dodon strictly opposes calls for a merger of the two countries.
