Abstract
The article examines the main aspects of Soviet-Romanian relations in the context of territorial contradictions and the impact of the ethnic factor. The research presented in the article is based on the analysis of archival documents, published materials and achievements of domestic and foreign historiography. It is revealed that the ethnic and territorial aspects of Soviet-Romanian relations in the period 1918—1945 were conditioned by the question of the ownership of Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina and Romania’s plans for “Transnistria”, in which the ethnic factor was clearly manifested. The main reasons for Romania’s entry into the war against the Soviet Union and the occupation of “Transnistria” was not only the loss of Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina in 1940 and the intention to compensate the loss of Northern Transylvania that receded to Hungary after the Second Vienna Award. In 1945, the territorial contradictions between the USSR and Romania were resolved.
