Russo-Turkish War 1806-1812

[ 1806 - 1812 ]

When Turkey deposed the Russophile governors of Moldavia and Walachia in 1806, war broke out again, though in a desultory fashion, since Russia was reluctant to concentrate large forces against Turkey while its relations with Napoleonic France were so uncertain. But in 1811, with the prospect of a Franco-Russian war in sight, Russia sought a quick decision on its southern frontier. The Russian field marshal M.I. Kutuzov's victorious campaign of 1811-12 forced the Turks to cede Bessarabia to Russia by the Treaty of Bucharest (May 28, 1812).
