Yes, it is quite frequent. We copied also les bornes kilometrique from the french roads. In the interwar period Romania was closely linked with France, in many fields of activity.

Awesome. Is the Cyrillic on those signs in Ukrainian or Russian?

Orlivka vs Orlovka.

It's Ukrainian, there is no I nor Ī in Russian.

I'm waiting for the Moldovan part. Panda80, keep the pictures coming

A village on the way to Bolhrad:



Buildings are quite far from the road, there is enough space for enlarging it to 2+2 if this will be needed in the future. Now the traffic volume is pretty low. In this part of Ukraine I've seen just very few modern cars, this region being quite poor and rural.





We enter Bolhrad. It's a town of only aprox. 16300 inhabitants, mostly bulgarians.

We are already in Moldova. I didn't took pictures from the border because it's prohibited.Unfortunately, there are still people with Kalashnikovs on these borders.



We are now on the bypass of Vulcanesti, a small town in the autonomous province of Gagauzia, Moldova:

A soviet worker's monument. There is a discussion about eliminating these kind of monuments in Moldova, as the country leaders are now very pro-western. Hope they will succeed in bringing the country closer and closer to EU.
