An Autonomous territorial unit or territorial autonomous unit (Romanian: Unitate teritorială autonomă) is an administrative division of Moldova. Gagauzia is the only such unit.[1] Moldovan law also recognizes the Transnistria autonomous territorial unit with special legal status. De facto it is a self-proclaimed statelet operating outside the jurisdiction of the government as the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic.
