On Wednesday, Chancellor of the Government Giedrė Balčytytė met with Minister of Defence of Moldova Anatolie Nosatîi, who is on an official visit to Lithuania. During the meeting at the Office of the Government, the Minister of Defence of Moldova was introduced to the new crisis management model of Lithuania.

“In Lithuania, we are well aware of the challenges facing Moldova as Russia continues its war in neighbouring Ukraine and seeks to expand its destructive influence in the region. Disinformation prevention, reliable real-time data, societal resilience, continuous monitoring and inter-agency coordination–all of these are at the heart of our efforts to implement the new crisis management and civil protection model in Lithuania. One of its key elements is the establishment of the National Crisis Management Centre in the Office of the Government. We are ready to share our experience and knowledge of proven solutions with Moldova,” said Chancellor Balčytytė.

At the meeting with the Minister of Defence Mr Nosatîi, the parties discussed the importance of enhancing the preparedness of state institutions to deal with several emergencies simultaneously as well as society's resilience to hybrid threats and disinformation.

Lithuania's experience in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and irregular migration has once again demonstrated the relevance of real-time data and its analysis for national decision-makers, the Chancellor emphasized.

During the meeting, the model of the National Crisis and Emergency Management Centre to be established was presented; the Centre will ensure continuous (24/7) monitoring, assessment and information on threats to the national security interests.
