ESJF team secures state support for surveyed sites in Moldova

In preparation of ESJF’s mass survey of burial sites in Moldova, our colleagues Alexander Bessarab and Yana Yanover travelled to Chisinau to discuss ESJF’s operations in the country.

Together with ESJF Moldova Coordinator Irina Shikhova they met Ion Stefanita and Victor Popovich from the Moldovan Agency for the Inspection and Restoration of Monuments (Agentia de Inspectare si Restaurare a Monumentelor), a public body responsible for the preservation of the country’s heritage. In the course of the meeting they discussed Moldovan state support for the project, including protection for the sites ESJF will survey in the framework of the pilot project co-funded by the European Commission.

We are very excited to start working together!
