June 21 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Commission for Exceptional Situations (CSE) of Moldova, chaired by the Prime Minister, Natalia Gavrilita, has proposed this Tuesday to extend again the state of emergency decreed in the country shortly after the start of the war in Ukraine.

According to a CSE report, due to the international situation, Moldova faces risks in energy supply, border security and the management of the flow of refugees, according to the Moldpres news agency.

Thus, under these conditions, the CSE could intervene promptly if there is a need to take additional decisions to ensure energy resources for all consumers and maintain the energy security of the country.

In line with the provisions of the body, the Ministry of the Interior will be in charge of preparing the project that the Executive will present to the Parliament of Moldova with the proposal for the extension of the state of emergency.

Already in mid-April, President Gavrilita announced the extension of this exceptional measure because the war in neighboring Ukraine generates “the risk of a new larger influx of refugees,” among other aspects.


On February 24, the Moldovan authorities gave the order to close the airspace and declare a state of emergency due to the risks arising from the Russian military invasion of Ukraine, a country with which Moldova shares part of its border, an area where it is also located. the territory of Transnistria.

With the exceptional measure, an intensification of the patrol work of the security forces is expected, in addition to raising the level of anti-terrorist alert.
