The prime minister added that, although during the last large-scale shelling of Ukraine, no Russian missiles flew over Moldova, this does not mean that the country does not need to prepare for risks.

"Today, the Republic of Moldova is facing challenges, and we will continue to ensure peace and tranquility," the head of government said.

It is noted that, since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, at least four cases have been recorded where Russian missiles or their debris were found on Moldova’s soil.

As reported, on the night and morning of March 9, the Russian Federation launched a massive missile and drone attack on Ukraine. Ukraine’s defense forces destroyed 34 of 48 Russian Kh-101/Kh-555 and Kalibr cruise missiles.
