Moldova is set to provide Ukraine with a new batch of humanitarian aid, the first in 2024. Valued at 4.9 million lei (over 250 thousand euros), this aid encompasses a variety of material assets and equipment, according to Vocea Basarabiei.

The aid package includes 19 power stations, equipment for blood transfusions, approximately 80 thousand protective masks, hand sanitizers, and over 50 thousand cans of pork and fish.

The delivery of this humanitarian aid to Ukraine will be overseen by teams from the General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations. Over 100 thousand lei (more than 5 thousand euros) will be allocated for transportation expenses.

The Ministry of Finance, in collaboration with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Customs Service, and Border Police, will ensure the expeditious completion of border crossing formalities for the transported goods.

Moldova's assistance to Ukraine

Last year, Moldova dispatched three batches of humanitarian aid—in February, April, and September—primarily intended for the needs of the Ukrainian army.

Additionally, in June 2023, Moldova sent eight trucks loaded with humanitarian aid worth 200 thousand euros to address the environmental and humanitarian repercussions caused by the destruction of the Novo-Kakhovka Dam.

It was reported last year that Moldova would join the international register of damages due to Russia's aggression against Ukraine.

During her visit to Ukraine in November of the previous year, Moldovan President Maia Sandu said that Moldova managed to evade occupation only due to the actions of Ukrainian forces.
