Chisinau, 5 April /MOLDPRES/ - The Council of the European Union has adopted a 41-million-euro support package for Moldova's armed forces. It is part of the European Peace Facility and aims to enhance national security, stability and resilience in the defence sector.

The adopted support will finance the provision of non-lethal equipment in the following areas: mobility, air surveillance, electronic warfare and logistics equipment.

"The assistance aims to allow the Armed Forces of the Republic of Moldova to enhance operational effectiveness, accelerate compliance with EU standards and interoperability and thereby better protect civilians in crises and emergencies. It also aims to strengthen Moldova's capacities for its participation in EU Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) missions and operations," a press release by Council of the European Union reads.

The measure was requested by the Republic of Moldova on 5 February 2023 and will complement other assistance measures adopted in May 2023, June 2022 and December 2021.
