GAGAUZIA - Autonomous Territorial Unit of Gagauzia / Gagauz Yeri

Gagaúzia (GagauzGagaúziya or Gagaúz YeríRomanianGăgăuziaRussianГагаýзияGagaúziya), formally known as the Autonomous Territorial Unit of Gagauzia (Gagauz Yeri) (GagauzAvtonom Territorial Bölümlüü Gagauz YeriRomanianUnitatea Teritorială Autonomă GăgăuziaRussianАвтономное территориальное образование ГагаузияAvtonomnoye territorialnoye obrazovaniye Gagauziya), is an autonomous region of Moldova. Its name comes from the Gagauz people.
In 1994, the Parliament of Moldova awarded to "the people of Gagauzia" (through the adoption of the new Constitution of Moldova) the right of "external self-determination". On 23 December 1994, the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova accepted the "Law on the Special Legal Status of Gagauzia" (Gagauz: Gagauz Yeri), resolving the dispute peacefully. This date is now a Gagauz holiday. Gagauzia is now a "national-territorial autonomous unit" with three official languages: Romanian, Gagauz, and Russian.

This is my another cover sent from Comrat, the capital city of Gagauzia, the autonomous region within Moldova. The cover posted on August 26, 2016 and I received on October 10, 2016. Thank You Michel for the big help from the rare region.

These beautiful covers sent by my good friend Michel from Slovakia, during his trip to Gagauzia . This is an autonomous region within Moldova, so not easy to get the covers posted from there. The covers posted on August 26, 2016 and I received on September 19, 2016. Thank You Michel for the big help from the rare region.
