Interview with Ambassador Roberto Musneci for Radio România Internaţional


This week Ambassador Roberto Musneci visited the Ukrainian-Romanian border to observe the continuation of humanitarian aid. He told Radio România Internaţional in an interview: ‘Since the beginning of the conflict we have provided doctors, paramedics and volunteers to receive the first wave of refugees which has now slowed down…our structures as well as those of the Red Cross and other organisations are well organised and therefore ready to receive a further wave in Ukraine.

The Order of Malta’s Embassy in Romania and the Malteser Relief Service, in cooperation with the authorities, have been assisting refugees at the border crossings of Siret, Sighetu Marmaţiei and Satu Mare since the first day of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The volunteers of the Maltese Aid Service in Romania are also collaborating with colleagues from the Order of Malta’s Italian Relief Corps, as the president, Gerardo Solaro del Borgo, explained in an interview with Radio România Internaţional.

“It is truly extraordinary to be able to help these people who have left behind everything they have built up over a lifetime,” says Ferenc Tischler, vice-president and secretary general of the Malteser Relief Service Romania, who is currently accompanying the Order of Malta’s ambassador on this mission to the Romanian-Ukrainian border, together with president Mihály Denes and programme manager Anca Simu.

The Ambassador also stated that he had discussed logistical aspects with the mayor of Solotvino to build a more systematised structure. In addition, the Ambassador underlined his intention to also arrive in the areas closest to the military combat operations to provide additional aid to the population. Next week we will be in Moldova, where by Whednesday aid will arrive from our order, which we have organised in recent days, including the Italian relief corps, Musneci concludes.
