For the sake of signing a contract with Gazprom, Moldova promised to recognize and repay the 700 millionth debt

On October 29, PJSC Gazprom and JSC Moldovagaz signed a new agreement on gas supplies from Russia to Moldova. For the sake of concluding a five-year contract, Chisinau promised Moscow to also recognize and pay off the long-standing debt that had formed.

Now the price of Russian "blue fuel" for Moldova may rise to $ 500-600 per 1 cubic meters. m, as reported TASS a source close to the negotiations. This is twice as much as it was stipulated in the formula of the previous agreement. He specified that the gas price is calculated taking into account the situation on the energy market. As for the debt, its total amount, including penalties, is now $ 709 million (the body of the debt is $ 433 million).

However, if earlier privileges were applied to all gas volumes, then, according to the new conditions, in the first and fourth quarters of the year (the heating season - ed.) The republic will buy 70% of the volumes pegged to oil prices, and the rest at market value; in the second and third quarters - 30% pegged to oil prices, and the rest - at market prices

He explained.

At the end of September, the previous supply contract expired, after which Moldova faced a gas crisis. In October, Gazprom signed an agreement for a month. Moldova received gas at a market price of $ 790 per 1 cubic meters. Further supplies were linked by Gazprom to Moldova's payments for September and October 2021, promising to stop gas transportation from December 1 if this was not done. Moldova, aspiring to Europe, showed understanding, although it had previously argued that it could not afford to buy gas at market prices and demanded a discount. Deliveries under a new mutually beneficial contract will start on November 1.

    This is what the life-giving Stockholm does!
    GazProm has already repulsed all fines due to the new pricing formula. What will the Europeans do? They can no longer cancel the court decision .... The only way out for them is to close trading on the stock exchange and sell gas pegged to the oil basket. And hang the entire staff of the European Energy Commission on lamp posts. Maybe it will be brighter on the streets.

    By the way, about trading on the stock exchange. There has always been a rule. If the prices for the goods change by 10-15%, then the auction is terminated. But for some reason this rule has never been applied to gas futures.

      Maybe it will be brighter on the streets - if you soak them in half with diesel fuel and white spirit, yes - it will be lighter and smelly too !!!

    Cheated once, twice, three times, how long can you? Cheated again.
    The head of Gazprom should be tried for squandering state property, sorry from the untouchable caste.

    Now the price of Russian "blue fuel" for Moldova may increase up to $ 500-600 per 1 cubic meters m ...

    The price for November is about $ 450 per 1000 cubic meters.

    ... Chisinau has promised Moscow to recognize and pay off the long-term debt that has formed.

    And again, not so: the debt has been slowly accumulating since 2006. Therefore, we agreed to audit the debt in 2022, and then draw up a calendar of payments for its repayment.

      "As for the price, the formula proposed by our delegation was adopted, which is based on a certain ratio of gas and oil prices on the market. Taking into account the commercial relations between MoldovaGaz and Gazprom, this formula will be made public only by the decision of the companies. But what can I do? to say at the moment is that, based on current market prices, in November the price will be about $ 450 per thousand cubic meters, and then the price will decrease depending on gas prices on the stock exchanges. 2 times lower than the market and lower than we paid in October, "wrote Spynu.

    By signing the treaty, Russia supported the Russophobic regime! Putting "loot" above the interests of citizens, and therefore Russia. So the sabbath of "devils" will continue. The agreement was signed without political demands for Moldova. Shame and contempt for Putin!
