This included notably pick-up trucks, drones, surgery sets and defibrillators as well as explosive ordnance disposal equipment. In the coming months, ambulances and a Role 1 medical treatment facility for providing first aid and immediate lifesaving measures will reach Moldova. These deliveries are part of the assistance measure under the European Peace Facility (EPF) agreed by the Council of the European Union on 2 December 2021 in Council Decision (CFSP) 2021/2136.

EU’s military assistance funded under EPF aims to strengthen Moldova’s resilience by enhancing the capacities of its Armed Forces. This includes an increased ability to provide services to civilians in crises or emergency situations, and the capacity to contribute to military missions and operations under the EU Common Defence and Security Policy.

Since 2021, the EU has adopted three assistance measures under EPF worth a total of EUR 87 million to support the Moldovan Armed Forces, specifically the medical, engineering, logistics, tactical communications, unmanned aerial surveillance, air surveillance, command and control, mobility and cyber-defence units.
