NATO is intensifying its support for partners in risk situations, Moldova – one of them

Defense ministers from the 30 NATO member states agreed to step up support for other partners at risk, namely, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, and the Republic of Moldova, the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, announced on Wednesday.

“We have agreed to step up tailored support to increase their defense capabilities, resilience, and interoperability with NATO,” Stoltenberg said during a press conference following a meeting of defense ministers from allied countries in Brussels on Tuesday and Wednesday. and which was preceded by a meeting of the Contact Group for Ukraine, led by the US, and attended by the Ukrainian Minister of Defense.


The announcement of support from the North Atlantic Alliance comes a few days after the President of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, said that Russia plans to involve military-trained saboteurs, camouflaged in civilian clothes, to attack state institutions and take hostages, stressing that “through violent actions disguised as protests by the so-called opposition, the change of power in Chisinau would be forced”.

Maia Sandu’s evaluations were made public after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy conveyed to the 27 heads of state or government in the European Union that Ukraine had intercepted the plans of the Russian secret services to destroy the Republic of Moldova. The signals from Chisinau were received with concern and with the reaffirmation of support for the Republic of Moldova from the USA, NATO, the European Union, and Romania.
