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.

Tatiana Verega is famous for her successes in the dance world, especially in the US, where she lives for 5 years now. She has recorded a world record after staying in the plank position for 3 hours and 45 minutes. The record has not yet been recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.

The funds will help cover the costs of bringing professional instructors out of the state to work with young dancers in summer workshops.

In 2012, the artist decided to go to the USA, and in 2013 Tatiana Verega opened her own dance studio called “DLS Dance Studio” where she trains children.

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.
