Moldova, Part 3

Description

This is a table equating groups of roman characters and cyrillic characters. In the 1920's, the Soviet Union attempted to unify Bessarabia (a region of Romania that used to be a part of the kingdom of Moldavia before the Ottoman Empire) and the Moldovan Soviet Socialist Republic (a region of the Soviet Empire). As a part of their attempt to create a new region, they applied the cyrillic alphabet to the language spoken by those of Moldovan descent. This language is virtually the same as Romanian and prior to the 1920's, was written in roman characters. In 1989, when the Moldova declared independence, the official language was changed back to being written in roman characters, except for in the region of Transnisteria, where the Cyrillic characters are still used to this day.
