Georgia and Moldova have both refused to join the international sanctions against Russia over the war in Ukraine.
Noteworthy, the two countries established in 2021 alongside Ukraine the Associated Trio, aiming to push for EU membership together.
Ukraine filed its application to the EU on February 28, calling for a “special new procedure” to fast-track its path to membership.
