Moldova needs strong international support to deal with the influx of people fleeing neighboring Ukraine.
This was stated by the Prime Minister of the country Natalia Gavrilitsa at a donation conference in Berlin, quoted by the Associated Press.
There are now about 100,000 refugees from Ukraine in Moldova, or about a quarter of those who have entered the country since late February, Gavrilica said. She added that her country of 2.5 million has tried to create decent conditions for refugees thanks to the “unprecedented mobilization” of the public and private sectors. But he added that tackling this flow is one of the biggest challenges any Moldovan government has faced in the past three decades.
According to her, in addition to financial assistance, Moldova needs help to connect its electricity grid to that of Romania. Gavrilitsa also asked the EU to open its market to agricultural imports from her country.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced at a donation conference that the federal republic would provide a 50m-euro loan to Moldova in addition to a 40m-euro aid package to deal with the refugee influx, the DPA reported, citing a government spokesman. The new credit line aims to provide more comprehensive financial support to deal with, for example, high energy prices.
