The President of Moldova, Maia Sandu, said that if Russia somehow threatens the territorial integrity of Moldova, the country will take measures to protect itself. This was reported by Newsmaker, citing a statement at a joint briefing with the President of Georgia.
Maya Sandu said this while commenting on the incident with Russian missiles that flew to targets in Ukraine through the airspace of Moldova on October 10.
The president noted that since the first days after February 24, Moldova has been concerned about how to take care of the safety of its citizens, and is negotiating with partners to help strengthen Moldova's defense capabilities. According to her, the results of this dialogue will be announced publicly when more specifics appear.
"I hope that such a situation will not happen, but if Russia dares to somehow threaten the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Moldova, then, of course, we will take measures to protect it," said Maia Sandu.
