Since the outbreak of war in Europe and particularly since Russia's participation in tiie new partition ol Poland, Moscow's pacts with the other Balkan states and the Russian invasion of Finland, Rumanian troops have been increased on the Bessarabiai] frontier and wide publicity has been jjlveii to Rumanian fortifications in the area.
