Moldova acknowledges no alternative to Russian gas
“We can’t give up on gas when we have no other alternative,” Moldova’s President Maia Sandu said
Wednesday – expressing hope that deliveries by Gazprom will continue despite an unsettled debt.
Moldova has launched a tender to find other supplies, but the results have been ‘unsatisfactory’ as all other tenders are “too expensive.”
Moldova’s contract with Gazprom expires on May 1. In order for it to be prolonged, the country needs to complete an audit of its huge debt, but it appears unlikely that the country will meet the deadline.
