Alexandru Usatiuc-Bulgăr (1915–2003) was a Moldovan activist and a political prisoner in the former Soviet Union.

Biography

Between 1969 and 1971, he was a founder of a clandestine National Patriotic Front of Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina, established by several young intellectuals in Chişinău, totaling over 100 members, vowing to fight for the establishment of a Moldavian Democratic Republic, its secession from the Soviet Union and union with Romania. In December 1971, following an informative note from Ion Stănescu, the President of the Council of State Security of the Romanian Socialist Republic, to Yuri Andropov, the chief of KGB, Alexandru Usatiuc-Bulgăr as well as Valeriu Graur (n. December 1940, Reni), Alexandru Şoltoianu, and Gheorghe Ghimpu were arrested and later sentenced to long prison terms.

Alexandru Usatiuc-Bulgăr was condemned to 12 years in prison.[1][2]

He was the president of the Association of former political deportees (Romanian: Asociaţia foştilor deportaţi politici).

Legacy
