At today’s meeting of the government the state of emergency in our country has been approved for prolongation for 60 days.
When asked by Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita why it was necessary to extend the state of emergency, the head of the Interior Ministry Ana Revenco referred to the fact that the war in Ukraine is an emergency situation, and the legal framework is developed “for peacetime”, reports agora.md
“It is an emergency situation, all the mechanisms, laws, instructions, regulations, which regulate the processes of life in the economy, labor, social assistance, culture, public order, have been calibrated and thought out in peacetime.
Moldova is on the border with the territory where there is a war, we are the first to feel its consequences, that is why we calibrate the normative acts that will allow us to intervene quickly and effectively in unexpected cases.
After this war is over, we expect that these crises will also cease, so that these mechanisms created by EC decisions will no longer be used. They are temporary in nature, to solve the complex problem created by the war in Ukraine,” the minister explained.
The state of emergency was first imposed on February 24, 2022 after Russia invaded Ukraine and has been continuously extended since then.
