About 10,000 Romanians, many waving flags and chanting "Unite, unite with the country," poured across a bridge into Soviet Moldavia to mark the 50th anniversary of Moscow's annexation of the republic. Smaller groups from Kishinev, the capital of Soviet Moldavia, and other areas crossed into Romania to visit relatives. The Romanians surged across a bridge at Albita into the Soviet republic despite attempts by border guards to stop them.

Soviet border guards have begun tearing down the barbed wire barricades along the tightly controlled Romanian border, a KGB official said. The official Tass news agency quoted Georgy Lavranchuk, head of the KGB in the Soviet republic of Moldavia that borders Romania, as saying Wednesday that about 30 miles of barbed wire had been removed. Soviet and Romanian officials also are moving to eliminate the border passes that previously were required, Tass said.

Hundreds of thousands of Romanians surged across the border with Soviet Moldavia on Sunday in what was intended as a ceremony of friendship but testified to a strong demand for unity among another of Europe's divided people. Eight border crossings were thrown open to Romanians without visas, allowing the first unhindered movement in 50 years between the divided halves of Moldavia. The scene was as joyful as the mingling of East and West Germans when the Berlin Wall was opened last Nov. 9.
