Today, during a meeting of the legislative body of the Republic of Moldova, the Chairman of the Parliament, Igor Grosu, announced the need to ensure reliable protection of the country’s airspace. According to the speaker, this measure is extremely important even despite the neutral status that Moldova has.
We have made relevant requests to enable us to control our airspace. We took advantage of financial assistance from the EU in the amount of 40 million euros in order to improve the security of our country. We are also in the process of negotiating with our neighbors Romania and Ukraine, as their air defense systems are much more effective. The recent incident clearly showed us that neutrality will not protect us from missiles.
– the politician noted.
It should be noted that by the word incident, Grosu probably meant the recent sensational incident with the fallen fragments of rockets in the village of Naslavcha, Oknitsa district, not far from the Moldovan-Ukrainian border, which occurred on October 31, when rockets violated the airspace of the republic. Then the Moldovan authorities immediately hurried to lay the blame on the Russian Federation. The Russian side denied its involvement in the incident, noting that the leadership of the Republic of Moldova did not provide any details and evidence on this case.
