Abstract
This article analyzes the evolutions of the relations between Romania and Russia in the years 1875–1878. With the outbreak of the Russo-Turkish war of 1877, in order to achieve independence, Romania would pursue a policy of rapprochement with Russia, even if among the political elites in Bucharest there were still old anti-Russian sentiments.
Even if during the collaboration with Russia, Romania gained independence, it still lost part of its national territory. During the a priori period of obtaining independence there were several situations that separated Russia from Romania. Also, Russia’s attitude in the Berlin Congress had a particular importance for Romania. The end of the war brought a real success for Romania, given the changes that have taken place over the years.
