This article discusses the language as a factor shaping national identity in Moldavia as seen by pro-Romanian intelligentsia, popularly referred to as Romanian nationalists. This movement's aim is to unite Moldavia with its true motherland of Romania. This situation differs from that in other former-USSR countries. People, who are called nationalists in Moldavia, neglect the existence of their state. They neither recognize Moldavian nation nor Moldavian language; instead they want to call those Romanian. It seems like the latter has an essential meaning for their national identity, and is also used as a weapon in political battles in Moldavia. The authoress presents also how her informants perceive relations between Moldavian, Romanian and Russian languages.
