EU to send lethal military aid to Moldova

The EU ambassador to Moldova Janis Mazeiks has said that the European Union will send lethal military aid to Chisinau.

There are fears that Vladimir Putin’s war will spill over the border into Moldova from Transnistria which comes as tensions have been growing since February 2022.

In December 2021 the European Peace Facility provided Moldova with $7.6 million to provide support for the military and their medical abilities for de-mining.

In June 2022 a further $43.4 million was provided to expand on the scope of support to strengthen their military.

Mazeiks said, “In the past, our support has been non-lethal equipment, so it has been about demining, about hospitals, about communications equipment, about vehicles, but this year there is a plan also to have the lethal components.”

In March the French President Emmanuel Macron and the Moldovan President Maia Sandu signed a bilateral deal to provide the military with training and to share intelligence.

Macron has said that France will provide “unwavering support” for Moldova as tensions grow as Putin is wanting to expand his reach to reform the Soviet Union.
