The state of emergency will be extended for another 60 days in the Republic of Moldova, starting from Sunday, June 4. The Prime Minister from Chisinau, Dorin Recean, recently said, in the legislative session, that this decision is necessary because of the unpredictable developments of the war in Ukraine.
The state of emergency in the Republic of Moldova, extended
Dorin Recean said that the ability of the government to take immediate decisions for the management of emergency situations in the context of the conflict in Ukraine, which has been going on for more than a year, is important.
“The aggression is at our border. Near us, in Europe of the 21st century, the civil infrastructure is being bombed, the aqueduct and sewage networks are destroyed, the infrastructure necessary to provide medicine, food and other necessities.
Electricity networks are also affected, which has a direct impact on the Republic of Moldova. Moreover, when Ukrainian citizens have nothing to eat, are in the dark and have no water, there is a risk of increasing the migration flow”, said Prime Minister Dorin Recean, quoted in a press release of the Chisinau Government.
The Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova wants to introduce the emergency ordinance
Dorin Recean specified that, in June, the Chisinau government will finalize an initiative to change the legislative framework to propose the introduction of the emergency ordinance, following the Romanian model.
The emergency ordinance will considerably increase the efficiency of parliamentary control over Government decisions and will make every decision taken in a crisis situation subject to debate or even annulment in Parliament.
“The approval of these changes to the legal framework will allow us to get out of the state of emergency, but to remain prepared for any unforeseen situation, which requires the immediate intervention of the Government, in order to protect the people”, said Dorin Recean.
On Thursday afternoon, Poland announced that it had handed over a “huge shipment” of weapons and ammunition to the Republic of Moldova to help it deal with Russia’s attempts at destabilization.
