The new border crossing point at Palanca was put into operation

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”.

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.

At the same time, Tatiana has launched a fundraising for the Galveston Chance to Dance program – a dance program sponsored by Tatiana Verega and her dance studio in America, DLS Dance. 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. Every day, Tatiana instructs 5-7 classes a day at her dance studio, as well as teaching lessons at various schools in the city. Likewise, another activity that occupies much of his spare time is fitness.

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.

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.
