"This award is not only a recognition of my efforts, but also a proof of the resilience and determination of the citizens of the Republic of Moldova on the path to democracy," said Maia Sandu, according to a press release from the Presidency.

President Steinmeier, after yesterday's meeting with the Head of State in Berlin, said: “In times when war has returned to Europe and when liberal democracy must assert itself internally and externally, lead the country with confidence and courage. May this award give you strength to continue your commitment to a democratic and European Moldova".
