G4media.ro Romania is building tools to protect Romanian citizens from R, Moldova and Ukraine “at risk”

--

Romania is building tools to protect Romanian citizens from the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. The draft national defense law for the first time gives the president powers for Romanians “in danger outside the national territory”, writes g4media.ro.

The draft national defense law, put up for public debate by the Romanian Ministry of National Defense, introduces for the first time the concept of Romania’s intervention to protect Romanian citizens in danger outside the national territory. Existing laws do not provide for this possibility. The new tool, made available to the President of Romania, appears in the context in which the Republic of Moldova is under the hybrid threat of the Russian Federation, and official statistics show that over 600,000 Moldovans also have Romanian citizenship.

What exactly does the national defense bill provide:

Article 4, paragraph 4:

The President of Romania can order, at the proposal of the Prime Minister, the necessary measures to protect Romanian citizens who are in danger outside the national territory, according to the law.

The mechanism proposed by MApN puts this decision in the attributions of the country’s president, at the proposal of the prime minister.

Also, the draft law provides that the Parliament approves the employment of military forces outside the territory of Romania.

Article 4, paragraph 3:

The Parliament approves the employment of military and non-military capabilities on the territory of the Romanian state or outside it, to counter hybrid threats, at the proposal of the President of Romania, after consulting the Supreme Council of National Defense.

Context

Romania currently has no legal instrument by which it can come to the aid of Romanian citizens from the Republic of Moldova or from Ukraine in the event of a military aggression by the Russian Federation.

Moldovan officials have constantly warned that the Russian Federation is waging a hybrid war against the country.
