A group of civilian advisers will be created at an “accelerated” pace with the aim of helping Chisinau in the face of the destabilizing activities of the Russian Federation.
The European Union plans to send a civilian mission to Moldova in May to support the country’s government in curbing Russia’s destabilizing activities. This was reported on March 31 by EUobserver.
It was noted that a group of civilian advisers, called EU Partnership Mission in Moldova (EUPM Moldova) will be established using a “fast track” process for an initial two-year period “with the aim of launching a mission in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Moldova”.
The purpose of the mission is to increase the stability of the Moldovan security sector in the field of crisis management, as well as increase resilience to hybrid threats, including cybersecurity, and counter the manipulation and interference of foreign information.
The publication emphasizes that Moldova’s holding of the European Political Community summit on June 1, 2023 could “cause an increase in hybrid threats and the threat of information manipulation.”
The mission’s size and budget have yet to be determined, but it will be created with the hope of “adapting to changing realities.”
According to the publication, EUPM Moldova employees should have “special experience” in countering foreign espionage, as well as “access to the most modern technologies.”
Earlier, NATO said that Russia will not attack Moldova by military means, but will try to paralyze it in a hybrid war.
The EU will give Moldova more help amid threats from the Russian Federation
