Led by the Vice-Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Urmas Paet (Renew Europe, Estonia) and the Chair of the Subcommittee on Security and Defence, Nathalie Loiseau (Renew Europe, France), a high-level delegation of seven MEPs will carry out a fact-finding visit to the Republic of Moldova, from 31 March to 2 April.
Regional repercussions of Russia’s war against Ukraine: insecurity and humanitarian crisis
During the visit, MEPs will observe the situation on the ground in Moldova, a country neighbouring Ukraine that is currently resisting a Russian invasion. They will stand side-by-side with the Moldovan authorities in a sign of unanimous European solidarity with the country’s citizens, as well as announcing concrete democracy support initiatives on behalf of the Parliament.
Over 300 000 Ukrainians have fled to Moldova, putting the country’s authorities and resources under severe strain. Moldova recently applied formally for membership of the EU.
Parliament’s delegation will meet with, among others, Moldovan Prime Minister Natalia Gavriliţa, the Moldovan Parliament’s President Igor Grosu, parliamentarians as well as representatives of international organisations.
During the visit, a press point will be organised. More information will follow.
