Thousands Rally for EU Membership in Moldova

Moldova’s President Maia Sandu told a pro-EU rally in Chisinau on Sunday, May 21, that “Moldova must be a member of the EU”.

Footage from the rally shows thousands gathered in the Great National Assembly Square in Chisinau.

Local media reported that Sandu told those gathered: “Moldova must be a member of the EU in the next seven years. Moldovans must be European not only in values, but also in deeds.”

Moldova was granted candidate status by the EU in 2022, a designation given to countries who must meet the EU’s requirements before full membership can be granted. Credit: Maia Sandu via Storyful
