Solidarity for Peace to mark Europe Day in Moldova

May 9, 2022

The Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova, together with the Embassies of the EU Member States, are marking Europe Day 2022 under the theme of ‘Solidarity for Peace’ with a number of cultural and educational events in several regions of the Republic of Moldova. 

Europe Day this year is marked in a context that has deeply saddened and troubled us. In Ukraine, a cruel and unjustified war is killing innocent people. Entire localities are wiped out by the ferocity of Russian military forces. Today, more than ever, the values that underpin the creation and work of the European Union – unity, solidarity, peace, the rule of law and respect for human rights, particularly the fundamental right to life – become indispensable,” said Jānis Mažeiks, Ambassador of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova.

“The war next door brings a personal duty for all of us to protect peace. Thus, I want to invite you to welcome peace into your homes: Solidarity for peace is the main message we would like to convey during the activities planned on the occasion of Europe Day,” the Ambassador said.

As part of the Europe Day events, the traditional European Village is opening its gates again, this time in physical format, in Chișinău and Edineț. In the capital city, the European Village is organised on 14 May, in the Grand National Assembly Square, followed in the evening by an exceptional concert by Moldovan and Ukrainian artists. On 21 May, the inhabitants of Edineț are invited to a regional European Village event, which will take place in the main square in Edineț, followed by a concert by local artists and Moldovan National Youth Orchestra. 

Additional events to mark Europe Day 2022 will be organised in Soroca, Ștefan Vodă, Ungheni, Bălți etc. in cooperation with European Investment Bank, local authorities and the network of Euro-clubs and European Information Centres throughout the country.

The traditional European Film and Culture Festival will be broadcasted on TV and on the online platform https://eu4moldova.eu/europe-day-2022, from 16 to 31 May.

The events dedicated to Europe Day will take place during 9 to 31 May. The agenda of events is available on https://eu4moldova.eu/europe-day-2022.
