The Republic of Moldova reduces staff at its Embassy in the Russian Federation. A draft decision to this effect has been prepared by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and proposed for public consultations. Accordingly, the diplomatic mission’s workforce is proposed to be reduced from 18 to 13 individuals.
In this regard, it is proposed to eliminate one counselor position and one secretary II position within the Embassy. Additionally, the authorities are discontinuing the positions of Minister-Counselor, plenipotentiary representative to the Economic Issues Commission of the CIS Economic Council, as well as secretary II in the Commercial-Economic Service.
The fifth position that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration is relinquishing is the accountant-cashier in the Financial-Administrative Service.
Regarding the position of Minister-Counselor, plenipotentiary representative to the Economic Issues Commission of the CIS Economic Council, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs notes that it is no longer relevant in the context of the termination process of several treaties within this organization.
As for the counselor position at the Embassy of the Republic of Moldova in the Russian Federation, it will be transferred to the Embassy of the Republic of Moldova in the Republic of India, considering that the recent opening of the Embassy in New Delhi necessitates the exploitation of the potential for political, economic, and consular dialogue development between the two states.
Regarding the two secretary II positions, the authorities mention that one of them will be transferred to the Diplomatic Mission of the Republic of Moldova to the European Union, owing to the need for a more active and extensive presence of Moldovan specialists from various fields in Brussels in the context of the negotiation process for EU accession.
