If Kiev and Moscow will not be able to agree on the extension of the contract on the transit of Russian gas, Moldova is ready to buy gas directly from Ukraine.
This statement was made by Maia Sandu, the Prime Minister of Moldova, in an interview with local media. “Today, we buy gas from “Gazprom” at the price we could buy it in Ukraine, one that she receives in the reverse system,” – said in Moldova, reports “Interfax“.
Sandu said that Moldova is dependent on gas supplied from the territory of Ukraine until then, until you finish building the gas line between Chisinau and Iasi. Only after that the gas can be purchased in Europe.
Today, Chisinau is buying Russian gas from “Gazprom”, which comes into the country through Ukraine. If Ukraine and Russia fail to extend the contract, then in 2020 Moldova GAZ will buy from Ukraine.
In Ukraine claim that Russia supplies gas to the country at inflated prices and they are higher than the Europeans.
