The evolution of Romanian-Soviet relations
Russia left the war in 1917 and the Bolshevik government was not invited to the Peace Conference; that is why Bessarabia’s union with Romania was recognised by the great powers through a separate treaty signed in Paris in 1920. Soviet Russia, then the USSR, had some negotiations with Romania concerning the restoration of the gold reserves and the recognition of the 27 March 1918 act in Copenhagen in 1920 and Vienna in 1924. However, neither these nor the negotiations between 1934 and 1936 managed to resolve the Bessarabia issue due to Soviet opposition.
