Bessarabia, another (rather sloppy) attempt of separatism in Odessa?

Bessarabia is a historical region, a former puffer zone of the Russian, Austrian and Ottoman empires. It’s boundaries lay mainly in today’s Moldavia (including Transnistria) and to a smaller part in the south of Ukraine (see Wikipedia). There are attempts to revitalize Bessarabia, rather for political reasons than out of nostalgia.
