Moldavia State Publishing House
The Moldavia (Moldovan) State Publishing House was formed after 1940. It had offices in Chişinău, the capital city and in Bacău. The Moldavian SSR was the first state in history formed on the basis of nationality per the term used by the Soviet Union at the time. The republic was formed in August 1940 by combining Bessarabia (an historical region in Eastern Europe) and large parts of the former Moldavian Autonomous Republic in Ukraine.
