Many people consider the idea of a “whole” Romania very intriguing because, after all, Moldavia was once part of Romania. Therefore, would an eventual union in the current geopolitical climate be beneficial, or would it cause more bad than good?

On the one hand, it would be almost impossible for Romania and Moldavia to unite under one flag. Since 1812, Russia has been “russifying” the populus population present in the region, and therefore people, when asked if they’re Romanian or not, tend to say no. Even if us Romanias want...... an union, they wouldn’t, not most of them most romanians dream of gluing the Basarabian Region in hopes of making a "Great Romania", the reality is that the people on the other side of the Prut do not want such a drastic change. Not to mention the fact that Furthermore, regions such as Transnistria and Gagauzia are problems that the Moldavian government hasn't solved, meaning that this union, while a small possibility, is not a priority for them. For these reasons, Moldavia wouldn't agree to uniting with Romania..

On the other hand, people immigrating to Romania from Moldavia wouldn’t need to go through all the trouble of procuring visas if the two countries were united. Therefore, Moldavians would get an easier passage. Romania would also gain from this because we would get smart students that are willing to sacrifice everything in order to achieve their dreams. The influx of people would benefit the industrial side industry of Romania, and possibly even reduce the amount of people emigrating to Western Europe.

All in all, a union is highly unlikely because both countries have other problems to deal with right now. Moldova is slowly becoming a slavic country, while Romania is facing mass emigration. But, at the end of the day, neither Moldavia nor Romania want an union, and it is definitely not a smart political move.
