The “Moldavian Vedomosti” newspaper continues to monitor the strengthening of relations between Moldova and NATO. “Next week in Chisinau a group of English servicemen from the British Military Advisory Training Team (BMATT) will arrive there. In Moldova they will give classes for younger officer and non-commissioned officers in the Alexandru cel Bun Military Academy and also at the Bulboaca training ground, which is in close proximity to Transnistria,” reports the newspaper. According to the agency, 30 Moldovan soldiers were selected for training with English instructors. The selection was very strict – it is necessary to be fluent in English, not to have relatives in Russia (a mandatory requirement from the British side), and to have experience in participating in peacekeeping operations or in international military exercises.
