4. SOUNDBITE (English) Kelly T. Clements, UN Refugee Agency Deputy High Commissioner:
“I'm in Palanca at the border of Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova. I spent the last couple of days here in Moldova, and I've been truly, truly overwhelmed by the generosity, the solidarity, the support that the Moldovan people have provided the people of Ukraine. I went to a refugee accommodation center my first day and had some discussions with families, women and children, mostly from Odessa, who had fled quite horrifying circumstances, continued sirens, shelling with a future that's really uncertain and we talked about their children's future. We talked about the choices they want to make. All of them wanted to go back as soon as they could, as soon as the war ends, as soon as it's safe.”

STORYLINE:

After crossing into Moldova at the Palanca border point, refugees from Ukraine are taken on minibuses to a nearby transport hub run jointly by the Moldovan authorities (general inspectorate for emergency situations) and UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.

There, refugees are given a hot meal and refreshments, and can access services provided by UNHCR, other UN agencies and NGO partners, including medical care, psychological support, specialist services for women and children, and even veterinary services for their pets.

Within several hours, they are provided with onward transport to their preferred destination, either to the Moldovan capital Chisinau or to neighbouring Romania.
