In the context of the First World War and of the fall of multinational empires, Romanians from the territories situated outside the country’s borders intensified their fight to get out from under the authority of Russia and Austria-Hungary and to unite with Romania. Representative organs were established: the Country Council in Bessarabia, the General Congress of Bukovina, the Great National Assembly in Transylvania.
