|Population (2014 census)|
The Grigoriopol Romanian-language school which was not allowed to function by the authorities of Transnistria was moved to the village in 2002.
On the eastern edge of Doroțcaia passes the strategic road linking Tiraspol and Rîbnița, and separatist authorities from Tiraspol want to control this road. 85% of Doroțcaia's farmland is across the road. From 2003 Transnistrian authorities tried to prevent farmers from accessing their land. Unable to harvest their crops, the farmers suffered serious losses.
This situation lead to an escalation of conflict between farmers and Transnistrian guards. An Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe mission was formed to find a temporary solution that allows farmers to access their land.
