Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova want to jointly respond to Russia’s threats
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called on his Moldovan counterpart, Maia Sandu, for a coordinated response to Russia’s threats.
“Our countries have threats with a common root, created by Russian aggression and Russian politics. If the threats have common roots, we should have a coordinated response to them, “Zelenski told a news conference, according to CNN.
Zelenski also said that “Ukraine remains a guarantor” in regulating the situation in Transnistria, the separatist region of the Republic of Moldova where there is a Russian military presence. He assured that Ukraine “will continue to actively assist the Republic of Moldova.”
President Maia Sandu visited the cities of Borodyanka, Bucea and Irpin, which were devastated by the Russians. Sandu reiterated Moldova’s position “loud and clear”, condemning “the senseless violence of this war and the invasion”.
Sandu added that his country of 2.6 million people received half a million Ukrainian refugees since the start of the war in February.
Last week, the European Union agreed that Ukraine and Moldova should receive candidate status, an important step on the path to full membership.
However, the process is lengthy and requires the agreement of almost all 27 Member States.
