Chisinau, May 25. /MOLDPRES/- Starting this June 4, the state of emergency in our country could be extended for another 60 days. A decision to this effect was approved at the cabinet meeting, following the proposal of the Commission for Emergency Situations. The document is to be presented to the parliament for adoption, the government's communication and protocol department has reported.
The need to extend the state of emergency is argued by the continuation of the Russian Federation's war of aggression against Ukraine and the security risks to our country.
Also, considering the energy, hybrid, social and security challenges generated by the current regional context, the authorities need to maintain some levers and tools that allow quick and efficient decision-making.
The state of emergency in the Republic of Moldova was established on February 24, 2022, with the outbreak of the war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
