Parliament Speaker Igor Grosu believes that Gazprom, the main supplier of natural gas to the Republic of Moldova, has a “special attitude” to the current government.
In particular, according to the speaker, the institution has changed its preferential attitude towards the Moldovan side. He stated this in an interview with Europa Libera, reports agora.md
“Gazprom has had a more special attitude towards the current government since last year, let’s say, not as preferential as it was before. I consider this gesture unfriendly. The right bank always paid its bill, maybe sometimes with a little delay, but we paid. This is more than a commercial decision – it is still political. We will fulfill our obligations, contractual clauses, the government will help citizens every time. Not Moldovagaz, which is a Gazprom company and which, in my opinion, did not lift a finger to become more active and, together with the parent company, find a solution for this difficult period in which we are, because gas prices are not normal,” Igor Grosu said.
According to the ANRE decision of January 28, a new tariff of 15.18 lei/m3 of gas, VAT included, was approved. The new price is applied retroactively, starting from January 1, 2022. In January, the price of Russian gas is $ 646 per thousand cubic meters.
