Committee for Organization of Commemoration Day Dedicated to Those Who Died in the Afghanistan War Convenes at Ministry of Defense



CHISINAU, January 15, 2019 — The Committee for Organization of Commemoration Day dedicated to those who died in the Afghanistan War convened at Ministry of Defense today in order to review the activities planned for this event.

At the beginning of the session, Minister of Defense Eugen Sturza, the Committee’s president, mentioned the importance of good organization of the actions marking the 30th anniversary since the withdrawal of the limited contingent of military troops from Afghanistan and asked for the involvement of all related institutions.

“It is important to honor the memory of our fellow citizens and to honor the veterans who participated in the war in Afghanistan. This is an objective of the Government of the Republic of Moldova for this year. I trust that all of us, those responsible for the organization of these actions, will make every effort to organize the event at the highest level,” said Eugen Sturza.

During the session, the participants established the directions and roles of each department involved in the organization of the activities included in the Government’s action plan.

Thus, in compliance with Government’s Provision No. 126-d as of October 24, 2018, a series of actions dedicated to the commemoration of those who died in the war in Afghanistan will be organized during this year throughout the country. These actions include: ceremonies for decorating the veterans with the Commemorative Cross “Participant in Combat Actions in Afghanistan (1979-1989)”, meetings, concerts, religious services, installing commemorative plaques in some educational institutions, educational-patriotic lessons, meetings between conscripts and veterans, exhibitions and conferences.

In 2019, there are 30 years since the withdrawal of the limited contingent of military troops from Afghanistan.
