Sandu and Grosu visited veterans: what did they talk about with World War II participants?

On the eve of May 9, President Maia Sandu and Parliament Speaker Igor Grosu visited World War II veterans.

Maia Sandu visited Ion Mereacre, a resident of Costesti. He said that he went to the front at the age of 18.

“I hope that my four children, ten grandchildren, and 19 great-grandchildren, like the whole of Moldova, will never again know the horrors of war and will enjoy life in peace,” the veteran said.

The President thanked Ion Mereacre for his sacrifice, for his love for the country, and for the fact that, together with countless heroes, he contributed to the restoration of peace on the European continent.


Speaker Igor Grosu visited Constantin Cojocari from the village of Sofia, Hincesti district, who fought in the Romanian army. He recently turned 105 years old.

“He told about his war experience, how from 1942 to 1944 he was at the front as a telegrapher of the Romanian army, how in one of his assignments he had to ride a bicycle 600 kilometers from the suburbs of Iasi to Bucharest to deliver an important cargo. His daughter Liudmila told us that as long as he could, until the age of 102, Mr. Constantin continued to lead an active lifestyle, including cycling,” said Igor Grosu.

We shall remind you that on May 9, Moldova celebrates Europe Day and the Day of Remembrance of the Fallen in World War II.
