EU to present a support package for Moldova before the summer

The European Commission will present a support package for Moldova before the summer, European Council President Charles Michel said on 27 March during his visit to Bucharest, Romania. Charles Michel met with Romanian President Claus Iohannis to discuss EU support for Ukraine and Moldova, among other issues.

“We reaffirmed our unwavering support for Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. In recent months, as you have mentioned, Russia and its proxies have stepped up their efforts to destabilise the country,” said Michel addressing Iohannis. “Weaponsing energy, conducting cyber-attacks, staging protests, and other subversive activities. We strongly condemn these attempts to destabilise Moldova. They must stop immediately.”

Michel also thanked Romania for its contribution to EU’s financial, military, humanitarian support to Ukraine, and for establishing a Union Civil Protection Mechanism logistic hub to channel EU assistance to Ukraine. He highlighted that Romania welcomed over 115,000 Ukrainian refugees and helped the transit of more than 70 international assistance missions through its international humanitarian hub.
