It should be noted that in September, the Defense Minister stated that the air space monitoring radar is purchased from the state budget funds, but he did not disclose the acquisition cost. According to the minister, other systems, such as early warning systems for potential threats, will be procured from funds provided by development partners.
Recalling that in February, President Maia Sandu requested NATO anti-aircraft defense systems during a discussion session at the Munich Security Conference, attended by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.
