European Parliament President Roberta Metsola assures that the EU will support Moldova in strengthening its security and defense infrastructure after several Russian missiles flew over the country's airspace.

We need to create a stable security and defense union that would complement NATO, and that means helping countries like the Republic of Moldova to provide security to prevent more critical incidents. For us, this is a warning sign that anything can happen, and we need to be prepared,” Roberta Metsola said during a press conference with President Maia Sandu, tv8.md reports.
