SWALWELL VISITS MOLDOVA TO THANK LEADERS FOR SUPPORTING UKRAINIAN REFUGEES

MOLDOVA — Today, U.S. Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) returned home following a visit to Moldova, which borders Ukraine to the north.

Over the two-day trip, the Congressman met with Moldova’s President, Maia Sandu, and Prime Minister, Natalia Gavrilița, to express gratitude for the country’s humanitarian support to Ukraine and encourage progress toward democratic and anti-corruption reforms. 
 

“As a neighbor to Ukraine, Moldova is on the front lines of Russia’s effort to destroy a democracy,” said Swalwell. “Moldova is a young, thriving democracy itself. During the visit, I met with Moldova’s President and Prime Minister to express U.S. support for Moldova’s efforts to reform and transition to a fully-functioning democracy. With the future of democracies threatened worldwide, Moldova’s success is America’s success. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to support democracies like Ukraine and Moldova.” 
 

Moldova gained independence from the Soviet Union and became a democratic nation in 1991. However, not until 2020 did it elect a pro-Western, anti-Russian leader.  Supporting Moldova will only become more critical given its border and relationship to Ukraine. Serving as a beacon of hope by welcoming 88,000 refugees, Moldova is also facilitating safe passage for over 500,000 Ukrainians who are fleeing the border and away from constant inhumane attacks by the Kremlin.
