After the Russo-Turkish war, 1806-1812, an area of Turkey was ceded to Russia and this area was organized and governed as Bessarabia, Russia.
In 1917 in the wake of the Russian Revolution, the area declared itself as the Moldavian Democratic Republic.
After WWI (1918) the area was occupied and administered by the Kingdom of Romania.
In 1940 Russia convinced Romania to withdraw its troops, allowing the Red Army to retake the region.
In 1941 Romania recaptured the area but in 1947 the Soviet-Romanian border was set along the Prut River in a treaty after WWII, which moved Bessarabia back to Russian control.
During the process of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, both Moldova and Ukraine proclaimed independence in 1991.
