Moldovans look to historic ties to build their future

Sandwiched between Romania and Ukraine, Moldova was a territory of Romania until it was annexed by the USSR in 1945 and became a Soviet state. Now many Moldovans want to be reunited with Romania, thus gaining automatic entry into the EU - and Bucharest is actively helping them.
