EUBAM increases its presence at the Transnistrian segment of Moldovan-Ukrainian border
Dec 24 2014, 00:58

ODESA, DECEMBER 24th, 2014, CONTEXT-PRICHERNOMORIE Starting from 1 December 2014 the number of border guard and customs experts of EU Border Assistance Mission to Moldova and Ukraine (EUBAM) deployed at the central (Transnistrian segment) of Moldovan-Ukrainian border has increased by 63%, Context-Prichernomorie correspondent reports.

The press service of EUBAM noted today, 24 December.

Engagement at the central segment of Moldovan-Ukrainian border and provision of first-hand information about the situation there is an important task specified in the EUBAMs mandate. In light of developments in the wider region in 2014, the Missions role as a neutral observer at this part of the border has become even more important.

Starting from last April, the Missions experts have been assisting to ensure that tightened controls, such as second line checks, are carried out in compliance with European standards and with human rights. EUBAM has also been providing first-hand information on developments of public interest at the border to the international community and to the media.

The increased number of experts deployed in Kotovsk and Kuchurgan field offices will allow the Mission to enhance its monitoring and reporting capacities along the entire central sector of Moldovan-Ukrainian border and to better address specific challenges occurring at that segment including counteracting smuggling and providing on-the-job training, tailored to the explicit needs of EUBAMs partners in border management.

The increase in EUBAMs presence particularly along this part of the border aims both to allay security concerns while also supporting a better service to members of the travelling public, Andrew Tesoriere, Deputy Head of Mission commented.
