"They also received recommendations on how to optimize cybersecurity processes, how to reorganize the system of monitoring and response to cyber attacks," a statement published by the administration reads.

Earlier, head of the Moldovan Security and Intelligence Service, Alexandru Musteaţa, said that Russia could launch a new offensive against Moldova in early 2023.
