President Maia Sandu came with a message welcoming the decision of the Council of the European Union to sanction those who participate in destabilizing actions against Moldova and threaten the sovereignty and independence of our country, the rule of law, stability or security of the state. "Thanks to this decision, the European Union will be able to freeze the assets and block the entry into the EU of persons who undermine the democratic political process or try to overthrow the constitutional order, including through acts of violence," the President said.
The head of state has further emphasized that restrictive measures could be applied to individuals involved in financial misconduct concerning public funds, who would be able to take control or seriously affect the activity of state institutions.
"We thank the European Union for the support offered to maintain stability and security in the country by imposing individual sanctions on those who want to cause destabilization. We thank Romania for its constant involvement and firm support of this important initiative for Moldova. The adoption of this sanctions regime is clear proof of the EU's support for Moldova, for our European path and for ensuring peace and stability in the region", concluded President Maia Sandu.
