ABOUT THE THEME
The Declaration of Independence of the Republic of Moldova (Romanian: Declaraţia de independenţă a Republicii Moldova) was a document adopted by the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova following the failure of the August coup attempt. The document claims 'millennial history' and 'uninterrupted statehood' within historic and ethnic borders and refers to the official language as 'Romanian.'.
