Of course, in addition to this is everything we recommend on the site Be prepared in case of different s emergency categories for the three days.

The President of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, convened the Supreme Security Council (SSC) on Thursday after the massive blackout that hit the republic in the aftermath of new heavy Russian bombardments on energy infrastructure in Ukraine, the leader of the State asking for an increased level of alert in the energy sector, reports EFE and Deschide.md.

CSS members analyzed the emergency plans to be implemented by the authorities to ensure the continuity of electricity and gas supply to citizens, the economy and institutions throughout the country, according to Replica.md .

The council recommended that the government update its plan to reduce technical vulnerabilities in electricity and heat supply and to mobilize all electricity production capacities.

In addition, Maia Sandu asked all institutions to increase the degree of vigilance in identifying and quickly resolving incidents in the energy sector, so that citizens and businesses feel safe.

A day ago, the Republic of Moldova was hit by massive power cuts, including in the capital Chisinau, following Russian attacks on the Ukrainian energy system, to which it is connected.

This is the second time the Republic of Moldova has gone without power since November 15, when Russia carried out the most intense attack on Ukraine’s grid since the start of its military campaign in February.

Agora.md recalls that, on November 15, one of the Isaccea – Vulcăneşti lines was automatically disconnected following the Russian bombardments, and several regions of the republic found themselves without electricity.

Also on Thursday, the Moldovan border police announced that 13 border crossing points with Ukraine have seen their activity suspended due to lack of electricity on the Ukrainian side or technical malfunctions in the databases of the Ukrainian border and customs authorities.

In the Republic of Moldova, electricity supply has been almost fully restored, although around 2,000 consumers still had no power as of midday, according to distributor Premier Energy.

Maia Sandu stressed on her Facebook account on Wednesday that “we cannot trust a regime that leaves us in the dark and cold and intentionally kills” innocent people.

Therefore, she said, “as difficult as it may be”, the only way forward for the Republic of Moldova is “towards the free world”.

The Moldovan Foreign Minister, Nicu Popescu, urgently summoned the Russian Ambassador, Oleg Vasnetsov, to convey to him the strong protest of the Republic of Moldova against the Russian bombardment of Ukrainian civilian infrastructure.
