Ukraine: EU proposes further Frontex support for migration management in Moldova

March 10, 2022

The European Commission has recommended to the Council of the European Union to open negotiations for a status agreement between Frontex and the Republic of Moldova. The status agreement will allow Frontex to support Moldovan border guards to effectively manage the current situation at the border with Ukraine.

This agreement will specifically allow for the deployment of Frontex teams to carry out border management tasks including registration and border checks, led by Moldovan authorities to respond to the current challenges. 

Over 250,000 people have fled the war in Ukraine and sought safety in Moldova. Moldovan border guards are facing challenges both in view of the high number of people fleeing the war and sharing a border with an active war zone,” says a press release by the European Commission. 

A status agreement will strengthen the current cooperation between Frontex and Moldova which is based on a working arrangement concluded in 2008.
