The Republic of Moldova is situated between Romania and Ukraine, and it has often by occupied by surrounding nations. In 1359, the Moldovan feudal state was formed. In 1812, the Russian-Turkish Peace Treaty was signed. In accordance with the treaty, the Russian empire annexed the eastern part of Moldova, making it a Russian province. In 1918, the country united with Romania. This unity lasted till 1940, when the Soviet Union annexed the country. Moldova functioned as a territorial entity within the Soviet Union until the late 20th century.
On August 27, 1991, the Republic of Moldova became an independent and sovereign state. To commemorate this momentous occasion, the country celebrates Independence Day every year on August 27. As part of the celebrations, the Moldovan President addresses the people of the country with a festive speech. Public concerts, fairs, and outdoor activities are held in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, and in other cities around the country. On August 27, 2001, the first military parade was held in Chisinau to celebrate the first 10 years of the country's independence.
