Frontex' Support to Member States Neighbouring Ukraine

At the beginning of March 2022, Frontex started assisting Romanian authorities in processing the number of people crossing the border from Ukraine in the wake of the Russian war and perform other border control-related tasks, if needed. Hence, the Agency sent about 150 officers, 45 patrol cars, and other equipment to Romania’s border with Moldova and Ukraine. The operation follows a request from the Romanian authorities. Furthermore, Frontex is monitoring the situation in Ukraine and is in talks with all Member States neighbouring Ukraine. The Agency is ready to support them with officers and equipment.
