Autonomous territorial unit

An autonomous territorial unit (ATU; Romanian: Unitate teritorială autonomă, UTA) is an administrative division of Moldova.

Originally, Gagauzia was the only such unit.[1]

In 2005, Moldovan law also recognized the Administrative-Territorial Units of the Left Bank of the Dniester.[2] The latter is under the de facto control of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic (PMR, commonly known as Transnistria), a self-proclaimed state operating outside the jurisdiction of the Moldovan government.
