The peace treaty of Bucharest, signed on May 16 (28), 1812, marks a geopolitical compromise on Moldova's expense (in a tense international environment), thus paving the way -- within the larger Eastern Question -- to the birth of a new one, namely the Bessarabian question. It is worth remembering that the essence of the Bessarabian question is political in nature, consisting in the loss of national and territorial integrity of Moldovan Romanians, resulted from the conquest and partial annexation of Moldova and from the creation of an arbitrary border (effectively splitting Moldova in two on the line of Prut river) and from Russia's presence at the mouth of Danube, all of which signaled a new international ethno-political question.
