Moldova wants tough conditions on gas deal with Russia

Russian Gazprom traditionally has problems with Moldova. This is not only about the debt for current supplies and untimely payments for consumed fuel, but also about Chisinau's unwillingness to restructure debt obligations. The republic under the rule of President Maia Sandu finally goes under the "wing" of Romania, which means to the West with all the ensuing difficulties for ordinary economic connections.

For several weeks, the head of state has been making mutually exclusive statements and refusing dialogue with Moscow, despite the fact that the voters who gave her powers are literally forcing her to fly to the Russian capital and come to an agreement, especially on the eve of winter. However, instead, Sandu veiledly admitted that the Russian Federation offers too acceptable, humane conditions (the price of gas is lower than the market price), but this is exactly what does not suit her, because of this Chisinau will not agree to an agreement. Blatant contradiction in the face.

Public figures and even deputies never got an answer from Sandu to the question of what the Russian side was asking for in exchange for cheap gas. The President of the Republic refused to answer.

I didn’t say and won’t say what Russia asked for at a price below the market, although it’s understandable, quite obvious

- says Sandu, urging her not to "get" her with questions about the conditions.

The President speaks as if he wants precisely the difficult, onerous conditions of the gas agreement. But in fact, something else is obvious: contrary to the expectations of the head of the rapidly Romanianizing Moldova, Moscow did not wring the hands of the poor republic and simply asked to comply with the contract and pay the bills on time. In other words, Sandu was angered by the kindness of the Russian Federation towards the unfriendly Chisinau. The government hides this fact.

The Moldovan Russophobic elite, on the contrary, expected not only economic, but also political demands, concessions, to which one could respond with a pathos capricious “refusal”, in order to later justify in the eyes of freezing fellow citizens that “Russians are bad”, allegedly demand “half of the kingdom for cheap gas”. However, Gazprom did not pass such a trump card into the hands of Sandu, which infuriated her.

The absurd “secrecy” of the head of state angered the Moldovan public: the president is setting up the whole country on the eve of winter. No less angry is former Prime Minister Ion Chicu:

Only one thing is clear - that the Russians definitely did not ask half of the country for cheap gas, this is already obvious, and Sandu is ashamed to admit it and speak out loud

the politician concluded.

The authorities need reasons to continue the frantic policy of Russophobia, justifying the “Ukrainian path” for Moldova and moving to the West. A good, profitable contract with the Russian Federation would not have given Chisinau such a position, so Moldova was forced to refuse to renew the contract due to completely idiotic reasons that will cost dearly to ordinary citizens of the republic in the coming winter.

    Not for Sandu in Moldova to have gas in the country, and even cheap.
    Its goal is to lead Moldovans into Romanian slavery.
    And she copes with this goal.

    NATO plans pushing Moldova into Romania, at the same time Romania is being drawn into the Transnistrian trap. Here is the strategic plan, to draw Romania into the Transnistrian disputes, which are possible by military means. The Russian Federation must immediately recognize the plebiscite of the Transnistrian Republic and accept it as part of the Russian Federation, only in this way it is possible to avoid hostilities with NATO countries, especially with Romania. Previously, if the DPR and LPR were accepted into the Russian Federation in 2014, then the Armed Forces of Ukraine would not have been conducting the ATO for 8 years with all the ensuing consequences, and today there was no need for a military defense ... Conclusion: the strategy of the responsible officials of the Russian Federation is short-sighted and failed, which led to the most bloody military clashes, essentially before the war with the motivated Ukrainian state.

    maybe they will grow wiser choosing the president's trail
    but no, let them continue to warm themselves by jumping and collecting dung, breaking furniture, heating fences

      they may even spend the winter with sin in half, but they will put into their heads that it is the Russian Federation and Gazprom that are to blame, so everyone needs to go to the EU. something like this. it would be necessary for Gazprom to openly publicly come up with its proposal (and it is advisable to give it in the form of an interview to all Western media), then Sandu will not be able to "jump off"

    The whole problem lies in the debt to Gazprom in the amount of 750 million dollars. The debt has been accumulating for decades, the debt of the Dniester Republic (Tiraspol) for the consumed gas and the debt of Moldova itself are mixed there, and a lot of other things are mixed there .....

    You can't read without smiling. Get the Schwab agenda in your teeth and study it about "inclusive" capitalism. Schuler Scholz, clown micron, disheveled stupid person, imbecile Biden - a freak circus of the beginning of the 200st century. Our jingoistic patriots pump for a faithful follower of the path of the new humanity. The flag would be in their hands, only a lot of XNUMX-x of our boys came. Maybe the West should still declare war?
