Incidents in Transnistria: EU calls to avoid destabilisation in the region

April 29, 2022

The recent incidents in the Transnistrian region of the Republic of Moldova are detrimental to the security and stability of the Republic of Moldova, EU High Representative Josep Borrell said today.

The European Union calls on the responsible actors to avoid the destabilisation of the situation. We strongly welcome the restrained reactions from the authorities of the Republic of Moldova, which help maintain calm in the country,” said Borrell.

He added that the EU stands in solidarity with Moldova and reiterates its unwavering support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Moldova within its internationally recognised borders and with a special status for the Transnistrian region.

Borrell also reminded that the EU is providing comprehensive aid to Moldova to address the immediate challenges of the refugee inflow, and has stepped up its medium-term support to strengthen the country’s overall resilience.
