The military personnel of the battalion has loaded standard weapon, equipment and marched to the Central Sector of the Security Area (Dubasari) for a rotation at peacekeeping posts. The next stage will include rotation of motorized infantry battalion at the South Sector of the Security Area.

EADaily informed earlier that the pro-Western coalition in Moldova asked to put on the agenda of the 72nd UN General Assembly the question of complete withdrawal of “foreign troops from the territory of Moldova”. This was preceded by a verdict of the Constitutional Court that equaled the Russian peacekeepers to “occupational troops”.
