Moldova and the Russo-Ukrainian War

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Moldova accepted Ukrainian refugees,[1] opened a bank account for donations,[2] and unofficially imposed sanctions on Russia.[3]

In response to the invasion, Moldova declared a 60-day state of emergency and fully closed its airspace for a week.[4][5]

The war has spilled over into Moldova on multiple occasions, though it is not a belligerent. Moldova is officially neutral.[6]

Some believe Russia want to create a land corridor to Transnistria,[7] or bring Transnistria into the war completely.[8]
