As an ethnic group Moldovans do not exist. The people of the republic are essentially Romanian, and their language was the only Romance tongue native to the former Soviet Union. Moldova has used the Cyrillic alphabet under Soviet rule, but a return to Roman characters - a triumph for the republic - was announced in 1989. Bessarabia, the old name for the region between the Dnestr and the Prut Rivers, bounced back and forth between the Ottoman Empire and Russia for a hundred years, until the Turks ceded it in 1812. Bessarabia became part of Romania after World War I; the Soviets intimidated Romania into giving up the territory in 1940. Largely agricultural, known for production of grapes and wine. An independent republic was declared in 1991. In 1992, a join declaration by Russian and Moldovan presidents envisaged a demarcation line from Transdniestria's separatists, which had developed into self-styled republic.
