Biography

Nicolai Costenco was born in Chişinău on December 21, 1913, but his maternal grandparents, Gheorghe and Libeada, brought him up in Cihoreni. He worked for Viaţa Basarabiei (1934–1940).[2] In 1941 he was deported to Siberia because he claimed that there is no difference between the Moldovan language and the Romanian language.[3] In his poem, "Pictează-mi o mirişte", Grigore Vieru wrote: "Nicolai Costenco, poetul/ Care şi-a scris poemele/ Pe caietul de gheaţă Siberian"...[4][5]
