Ukraine's parliament ratifies agreement with Moldova on bridge construction across Dnister River
The Verkhovna Rada has ratified the Ukrainian-Moldovan agreement on the construction of a bridge across the Dnister River, which will connect the countries in the Yampil-Cosăuţi area
Ukraine's MP Oleksiy Honcharenko announced this.
According to him, 269 MPs supported the draft law.
"The Rada ratified the Agreement between Ukraine and Moldova on the construction of a road border bridge crossing over the Dnister River on the Ukrainian-Moldovan border near the settlements of Yampil and Cosăuți," the statement reads.
For reference. The initiative to build this bridge across the Dniester was announced back in 2012. According to the press service of the Moldovan parliament, this project will facilitate economic ties between the two regions and ties with other countries. In particular, the construction of the bridge will help connect the road network through the eastern part of Moldova to the TEN-T trans-European road network. It will also strengthen Moldova's role as a link between the EU and neighboring countries.
