"Gazprom" has found an effective government for "Moldavagaz"


Despite Russophobia and friendship with the West, as well as Chisinau's constant declaration of financial problems when paying for gas, the national operator Moldovagaz paid on time for the raw materials supplied by Gazprom. Paid all last month's payments ($53M) and transferred the October advance of $27M (50%). This, in general, a regular event was announced with pathos by the head of Moldovagaz, Vadim Cheban, in his TG channel. Routine action is described as almost an outstanding achievement.


The gas sector official also separately noted that the payments became possible with the assistance of the Moldovan government. Which did not come as a surprise, since against the backdrop of the gas crisis and the general degrading economic situation in the republic, the leadership of the state makes a huge PR event out of each payment to Gazprom.

In this case, the leadership of the Russian holding, apparently, managed to find words and really effective, effective justice for the Moldovan side, so that payments began to be transferred relatively stably on time. Back in September, Deputy Prime Minister of Moldova Andrei Spinu said that he did not “understand the representatives of Russia” about whether gas would be cut off for his country or not. In October, apparently, Moscow's position finally reached him, and payments from the budget became regular, although the crisis in Moldova is only getting worse.

But Gazprom's warnings are especially clear against the backdrop of the catastrophic state of affairs in the gas sector in Europe. There is a lot of fuel, but it is expensive, no one is going to share it even with their own people (the notorious 15% savings and disconnection of consumers). Therefore, Chisinau has nowhere to wait for alternative supplies, except for the Russian Federation. And a 30% reduction in the supply of raw materials by Gazprom had a sobering effect even on Russophobes from the administration of President Maia Sandu.

The "miracle" happened instantly, when two simple facts were summed up - the money was immediately found. And all the talk about EU "aid" and the European choice incredibly quickly faded into the background.

    Do not understand.
    Russia accepts payment for Russian gas in rubles, and Moldovans pay us in dollars?!
    Who is fooling whom?

    Sometimes a slap in the face is more effective than hundreds of well-founded arguments and appeals of conscience.

    Yes, Gazprom is fooling everyone. Dollars are transferred to Gaprombank. Converted into rubles. The currency remains in the accounts of Gazprom and not foreign banks. Elementary, Watson

    If it weren’t for Transnistria, Moldova would have been sitting without Russian gas for a long time

      In Pridnestrovie, enterprises stopped working - the Moldavian Metallurgical Plant and the Rybnitsa Cement Plant. Reason: reduced gas supplies from Gazprom.
      Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Economic Development Sergey Obolonik on the state of emergency in the economy:
      - By the end of the month there will be a deficit of 15 million cubic meters of gas. Worst of all, we are already sorting out of the system, and such modes can lead to shutdowns. This is what caused such an urgent and large-scale reaction to the current situation in the economy and energy, in particular.

        Of the 355 people in your "native" Transnistria, 346 have citizenship of the Republic of Moldova.

    the leadership of the Russian holding, apparently, managed to find words and really effective, effective government on the Moldovan side,

    There are no words there - frosts have begun, they have begun to drown in hospitals, schools, kindergartens. This is the most powerful argument.
    Moldovagas paid with a loan provided by the government, as consumers did not pay 100%.

    There is a lot of fuel, but it is expensive ... Therefore, Chisinau has nowhere to wait for alternative supplies, except for the Russian Federation.

    Gas prices in Europe fell to $1 per thousand cubic meters on Friday.
    Alternative supplies are possible from Romania: there is no need to sculpt Prometheus from Gazprom here.
    The EU helps Moldova by allocating money, but at the same time it specifically stipulates that this money cannot be paid to Gazprom.

    Finally, all these figures of several tens of millions of dollars seem ridiculous to me personally, because for Gazprom they are just dust. If the "sandals" from Chisinau yapped less, then the gas price could be reduced.

      Because gas (oil, gold and more) is traded in USD all over the world.

    Paid in Russian money... Received a loan from a Russian company against the "collateral" (ha-ha-ha) of the gas transportation system... The stupidity of the Russian oligarchs is depressing...

    Good management! Moldovagaz is 3/4 owned by Russia. She was given a loan by the Moldovan government at 22% to pay gas debts in September-October, and if Moldovagaz (actually a Russian enterprise) does not return this loan by May next year, then the Moldovan government will nationalize this enterprise. Moldovagaz cannot raise gas prices at its own discretion, as they are regulated by ANRE. The gas received from Gazprom will be sold in Moldova, but it will not be possible to raise money for it. It turns out that the Moldovans will also receive gas and take away for free the entire gas transportation system of Moldova for free, which now actually belongs to Gazprom, since Gazprom has already paid a lot of money for it. At the same time, the historical debt of Moldova for gas will also be canceled, since Moldovagaz will be nationalized, and all its debts will be automatically written off. So what kind of government did Gazprom find, if it didn’t get anything as a result, it loses billions of dollars. Bravo May Sandu!!!!
