Refugees from Ukraine will receive temporary protection in Moldova even after the state of emergency is lifted. A draft decision was approved by the executive branch on Wednesday, IPN reported.
According to Interior Minister Adrian Efros, the draft was elaborated to ensure the continuity of the documentation process for those applying for temporary protection.
According to him, if the state of emergency is lifted, the relevant changes will no longer have legal consequences, and temporary protection applicants will face difficulties in obtaining the necessary protection.
Thus, to ensure that people have access to temporary protection and avoid family separation while at the same time ensuring the best interests of the child, the regulations will be supplemented with strict provisions regarding the number of people who are considered family members. In addition, a self-responsible declaration regarding the residence address of the beneficiary of temporary protection will be introduced.
Applicants for temporary protection will be warned of criminal liability for providing false information.
