Moldova has become the 35th country to support the creation of a special tribunal for Russian crimes of aggression against Ukraine, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said in a Twitter post on April 27, following a meeting with his Moldovan counterpart, Nicu Popescu.

Kuleba stated that he had productive negotiations with Popescu, during which they discussed the necessary steps to begin negotiations on Ukraine joining the EU in 2023.

"He informed me on Moldova’s decision to join the Core Group on the creation of a Special Tribunal for the Crime of Aggression Against Ukraine," the minister said.
