Published

Moldovan Defense Minister Eugen Sturza declared that he had talks with the North Atlantic Alliance on behalf of the organization of a joint military exercise on the territory of the Republic of Moldova. The exercise could take place at Bulboaca Training Center. The statement was made at the TV show “Fabrika” at Publika TV, IPN reports.

Eugen Sturza believes that the Bulboaca Center is becoming an ultramodern center with state-of-the-art application infrastructure and that the Moldovan participation in military exercises is massive.

“The Republic of Moldova did not host exercises in 2004 and this would be an important step for the country,” the minister said.

The official says he is having talks with development partners in order to extend geographically military participation and to make Moldovan soldiers interoperable with other country’s military.

According to him, it’s necessary for Moldovan soldiers to gain experience from the states that participated in armed conflicts.

“We have no need to accumulate this experience but through our joint exercises,” the defense minister said.

Nine Moldovan airlines were included in the European Commission’s revised list of airlines that do not meet international safety standards and are subject to a ban on operating in the European Union (EU).

According to the European Commission information cited by Agerpres, all Moldovan air carriers certified by the authorities with responsibility for regulatory oversight of Moldova with the exception of Air Moldova, Fly One and Aerotranscargo have been included in the list because of the lack of safety oversight by the Civil Aviation Authority of Moldova.

All in all, 120 airlines have been banned from operating in the EU: 114 companies registered in 16 states due to lack of oversight by the airline authorities of those countries, plus six other companies due to concerns about the security of these companies: Avior Airlines (Iran), Iran Aseman Airlines (Iran), Iraqi Airways Iraq), Blue Wing Airlines (Suriname), Med-View Airlines (Nigeria) and Air Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe). According to the European Commission, the EU’s list of airlines banned within the EU has become a major preventive tool, motivating countries to act before a ban is needed.

Published

on

Yesterday, the Palanca border crossing point operated jointly by customs and border guards from the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine was put into operation.

Thus, persons crossing the Moldovan-Ukrainian border through the “Palanca-Mayaki-Udobnoie” border crossing point will be subject to a single control and the waiting time in customs will be considerably reduced.

With an investment of EUR 4.5 million from the European Union and EUR 1.68 million from the Government of the Republic of Moldova, the crossing point was built on the basis of a project implemented by the United Nations Development Program.

Citizens will not stay in line for hours, and border guards and border guards will be able to process 2 times more cars than before.

“This crossing point, built according to European standards, brings us closer to Europe and comes first to the benefit of those who will cross the border. We have managed to build modern infrastructure here. At the same time, we are talking about better working conditions for the Border and Customs Police employees,” said Pavel Filip.

In turn, President Petro Poroshenko noted the importance of joint projects and the unification of efforts in the European aspirations of the two countries.

“Today’s event is an example of unity – only by joint effort have we been able to ensure a high level of security and stability in the region,” the President of Ukraine stressed.

Currently, joint control is applied at six crossing points: “Criva-Mamaliga”, “Larga-Kelmen”, “Briceni-Rossoşan”, “Giurgiulesti-Reni”, “Cuciurgan-Pervomaisc” and “Palanca-Maiaki-Udobnoe”.
