Moldova has sent a new batch of humanitarian aid to Ukraine totaling 4.9 million lei ($250,000). Five trucks with a cargo of over 75 tons were sent today, according to NewsMaker.

The humanitarian aid includes medical supplies (blood transfusion systems and disinfectants), as well as canned food and electric generators.

"The Ministry of Internal Affairs receives more than 100 thousand lei from the government's reserve fund for the transportation of humanitarian aid," the report says.

The Moldovan government decided to provide humanitarian aid after the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs received a list of necessary goods from the Ukrainian authorities on November 15, 2023.

Recently, the Deputy Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Olena Kondratiuk, at a meeting with her Moldovan counterpart Doina Herman, thanked Moldova for helping Ukraine.

"Despite the difficult situation in Moldova, it has provided Ukraine with humanitarian aid worth $6.7 million and sheltered almost 100,000 of our citizens, women, and children. We are grateful for the help," says Kondratiuk.

Moldova's assistance to Ukraine

Last year, Moldova sent three batches of humanitarian aid - in February, April, and September - mainly for the needs of the Ukrainian army.

In addition, in June 2023, Moldova sent eight trucks of humanitarian aid worth 200 thousand euros to eliminate the environmental and humanitarian consequences caused by the destruction of the Nova Kakhovka dam.

Last year, it was reported that Moldova would join the international register of damages due to Russian aggression against Ukraine.

During her visit to Ukraine last November, Moldovan President Maia Sandu said that Moldova was saved from occupation only thanks to the actions of the Ukrainian military.
