This event is part of a weekly series that the Center for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (CSEEES) is organizing through April to help understand the war in Ukraine, and Ukrainian heritage, history, and culture. Please check our event page for a full listing of all events.

The Republic of Moldova, bordered by Romania to the west and by Ukraine in the north, south, and east, broke away from the Soviet Union in August 1991. With strong historical ties both to the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union, but also to the countries and cultures that make up modern day Central and Southeastern Europe, Moldovans are watching the war in Ukraine closely with fear about what it could mean for their country’s future.

Lorraine S. Wallace, PhD was a Fulbright Scholar in the Republic of Moldova in 2009-2010.  While in Chişinău, she taught and conducted research at Nicolae Testemițanu State University of Medicine and Pharmacy.
