Chisinau, February 24 /MOLDPRES/- Moldovan parliament condemns the brutality of the Russian Federation's war of aggression against Ukraine. A draft statement on Russia's aggression against Ukraine is to be approved by the Legislature. The initiative, registered today, one year of the war, belongs to a group of MPs of the PAS parliamentary faction.

According to the parliament's communication and public relations department, the deputies find that the Russian Federation, since February 2014, has been waging an illegal, unprovoked and unjustified war of aggression against Ukraine, amplified on February 24, 2022 by a large-scale invasion. According to the document, this act of open aggression represents war crimes and a flagrant and serious violation of the principles of international law and the international commitments assumed by Russia.

The parliamentarians call on the Russian Federation to immediately cease military activities in Ukraine and unconditionally withdraw all military forces and equipment from the entire internationally recognized territory of Ukraine. At the same time, the authorities of the Republic of Moldova support the efforts of the community of democratic states to establish a special tribunal for the crime of aggression against Ukraine, to establish responsibility for war crimes and for all violations of international humanitarian law committed by Russia and its henchmen in Ukraine. The document confirms the Moldovan authorities' willingness to further provide humanitarian assistance to the residents of Ukraine who are seeking refuge.

The deputies launch a call for unity, vigilance and responsibility to all citizens of the Republic of Moldova who want peace and freedom.

Speaker Igor Grosu sent a message one year after the start of the war in Ukraine, which stole thousands of lives and swept away hundreds of localities in the neighboring country. He praised the great effort of our society, which proved that we are a small country with a big heart. "One year since the Russian aggression, unprecedented in Europe since the World War II. Moldova has opened its doors for Ukrainian refugees, Moldovan citizens continue to host over 80 thousand Ukrainians. We want this unjust war to end as soon as possible. We were and remain with our friends from Ukraine and the brave Ukrainian people", his message reads.
