During the Soviet period, it was considered a suburb of the nearby city of Dubăsari, but has since separated from the city and elects its own mayor. During the 1992 War of Transnistria the village was the scene of heavy fighting. After the war it was divided between a part controlled by the government of Moldova and a part controlled by the secessionist government of Transnistria.

On 13 May 2007, Transnistrian separatist authorities shortly detained Valeriu Mițul, the mayor of Corjova, and Iurie Coțofan, a Dubăsari district councillor.[1] On 3 June 2007, Iurie Coțofan was again detained. Transnistrian militsiya (police force) did not allow the inhabitants to participate in Moldovan elections.[2] Valentin Besleag, a candidate for mayoral office, was also detained by the separatist authorities on 2 June.[3]
