Minister of Energy of Moldova is ready to pay 1% of the debt and put forward counterclaims from Russia

Chisinau is ready to offer Gazprom $8,6 million to settle the issue of the republic’s historical gas debt to the Russian concern, Energy Minister Viktor Parlikov said. At the same time, the Moldovan authorities are ready to bargain and discuss various options, he noted at a briefing on September 6.

Parlikov emphasized that, according to the audit, most of the total debt - $400 million - is overdue and can no longer be paid, and the debt of $276 million is allegedly not supported by documents. The official explained that when conducting the audit, the auditors were based on the amount of debt of $709 million, which was formed on the basis of $433 million of actual non-payment and late fees.

The audit confirms that the largest part of the debt, either all documents have not been submitted for it, or it is not enforceable. Of the 709 million, most are unconfirmed or unenforceable

Parlikov said.

He added that the auditors came to the conclusion that JSC Moldovagaz has the right to put forward its financial requirements to Gazprom.
The minister explained that Moldovagaz's counterclaims against Gazprom may relate to part of the payment for gas transit, as well as failure to fulfill the obligation to supply gas volumes to the region. Parlikov noted that in 2022, Gazprom unreasonably reduced the volume of supplies to Moldova.

The official voiced the position of Chisinau, which is that Moldovagaz will pay $8,6 million and all Gazprom's claims should be withdrawn. In Moldova, they are now waiting for the reaction of the Russian concern to their proposals, Parlikov concluded.

The Prime Minister of the Republic, Dorin Recean, also spoke out about the situation with Chisinau’s debt.

The Republic of Moldova is not going to pay non-existent debts - and Moldovan citizens obviously should not pay these invoices

- he said.

    Back in 21, it was necessary to send these European integrators on a walking erotic tour. Now turn off the valve, let them buy at spot prices, and everything will return to Pridnestrovie after the destruction of the ruins. The Englishwoman shits where she can, and our mugs are also fouled to boot. Only a policy built on self-sufficiency has a future in Russia!

    The gypsies take advantage of the fact that we will not abandon Transnistria and will supply them with gas, we must return Odessa to our homeland and resolve all issues directly.

    The money was stolen like Kolomoisky and Poroshenko. They don't need the country anymore. The population, of course, is the same. We are now waiting for the war there.

    Let them pay! If they don’t want to or can’t, don’t give gas! There is nothing to discuss with them. Transnistria must be resolved by military means...

    It seems that Moldova needs demilitarization and denazification no less than Ukraine.

    Parlicov says that Moldovagaz's debt as of October 31, 2021 was $756 million, but since part of the debts were paid, we are talking about a total debt of $2022 million at the end of March 709, reports.
    "To pay off this debt, you need about $1000 per family," says Parlikov.
    The audit confirms that for the most part of this debt, either documents for confirmation are not submitted, or this debt is not recoverable.

    It was clear to me from the very beginning that the Moldovans would not pay, and this is why this audit was started. Moldovans can steal billions, but they will never pay their debts. One good thing is that winter is coming, it will be possible to tighten the faucet there.

    Parlikov stressed that, according to the audit, most of the total debt - $400 million - is overdue and can no longer be paid, and the debt in the amount of $276 million is allegedly not supported by documents.

    If the second point is somehow still possible to understand, then the understanding of the first point is beyond the capabilities of the human brain. It turns out that you can take_in_debt / not_pay _for_received_goods, and then, delaying payment in every possible way, stupidly wait for the statute of limitations? Congenial! This is the 402nd "relatively honest way to take money." Ideas comrade. Bender are immortal and have already been taken into action at the interstate level.

    What kind of gas was supplied there if they didn’t pay. If they haven’t paid for 3 months, turn it off.

    Cool scam! I would add the following to the minister’s words: *Citizens of Moldova are not so rich as to pay debts for Russian gas. Let the Russians pay for us! They are no strangers*.

    Well, we are also looking forward to the reaction of *Gazprom* and the Russian Government to such a Moldovan scam.
