Putin pointed to the ambiguity of the reasons for the storage of Russian gas purchased by Moldova on the territory of Ukraine

During a meeting with members of the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the Ministry of Energy to deal with the issue of storage by Moldova in Ukraine of the gas it purchased from Russia, noting that the reasons for such actions are not entirely clear. The Russian leader touched upon this topic during a discussion of the situation in the Transnistrian region, also touching upon the situation of Russian citizens living in the PMR.


As for the citizens of Pridnestrovie, including persons with Russian citizenship, we have always drawn the attention of our partners to the need to respect their rights. As for the socio-economic situation there, it must be admitted that it is not easy, especially when it comes to supplying this region with energy resources. Despite the fact that until now we have actually supplied our gas there for free, recently there has been a shortage of blue fuel, since it goes directly through the territory of Moldova, and, as we know, it is now experiencing certain difficulties not only in social, but and economic spheres

- Putin emphasized.

At the same time, the head of state does not believe that Chisinau is blocking gas supplies, otherwise, as the Russian leader put it, part of Ukraine would not be able to receive it for the needs of its power plants.

Recall that for the first time ever, the Republic of Moldova decided to create a strategic reserve (more than 200 million cubic meters) of blue fuel stored on the territory of Romania and Ukraine. The Moldovan authorities took this step allegedly in case Gazprom cuts off gas supplies, although quite recently the head of Moldovagaz, Vadim Cheban, assured the citizens of the republic that the contract with the Russian gas holding was signed for 5 years, and therefore there are no grounds for him termination.

It should be noted that, despite the decrease in the gas purchase price for Moldova in December, the tariff for consumers, as Ceban stated, will remain the same high, which clearly raises a number of questions.

    Well trolled by Putin: Moldovans, do you know where your hectare is? You paid it, the budget is formed from taxes

    It would be nice for the citizens of Transnistria not just to sit like a cinema with popcorn, but to form a volunteer army corps of the People's Militia and actively participate in the demilitarization and denazification of Little Russia. And then again, as with the Abkhazians and South Ossetians, they will wait until their Moldovans and Romanians start cutting and they will have to open an additional front in the logistics of the western Black Sea, which is difficult for us.

      And you come to Pridnestrovie, call them the word "Transnistria", and let's see what they answer you.

    This is some kind of "Moldovan gas market" turns out ...... All over the world, gas becomes more expensive, and the purchase price for Moldova decreases in December? Either the author is off topic, or a virtuoso contract - world gas prices are going up, while for Moldova they are falling. Exactly, somewhere in one of the places there is crap.

    Something I did not understand the essence of the article. Moldova does not block gas supplies to Transnistria, but the gas flows through its territory, and it itself experiences difficulties in energy resources. At the same time, it stores reserves in Ukraine and Romania. Does this mean that they are simply stealing gas destined for Transnistria?

      That is exactly what it means. Transnistria is supplied with gas from us at a price "for its own", but it goes through Moldova and is paid, as it were, by Moldova. And when it is not paid (and this often happens), the Moldovans raise a cry about the inadequate price and turn on the faucet for Pridnestrovie.

        Everything is slightly opposite.
        The gas supplied by Pridnestrovie has not been paid for for a long time, for many years.
        Formally formed gas debt of Moldova to "Gazprom" is about $ 7,2 billion. Almost all of this amount forms the debt of consumers in Transnistria.

          This is the debt of Moldova, which must be collected from it as compensation for the 30-year blockade of Pridnestrovie. This is not the duty of Pridnestrovie, they are not a subject of the agreement.

      What is there, Gennady, to understand?
      Ukraine steals Moldovan gas.
      The Moldovan authorities cannot admit this for two reasons - firstly, they cannot do anything (a minus in front of their voters), and, secondly, this will automatically mean that "while all progressive humanity..." they do not support Ukraine, presenting it allegations of theft claims at a time when the West forgives her for any crimes (a huge minus in front of the West).

      Caught in such "pincers", the "Maya bee" and invented a fairy tale about "strategic reserves". Anyway, by the time it comes to using them, she will already be in Miami and she will not care if these "reserves" are found or not.
      Or maybe she didn't invent it herself. Maybe the "older brothers in mind" suggested.

      Hypsies steal? What's the news! And what is "Transnistria"? I hope you didn't mean to call Pridnestrovians by this word, like a Romanian Nazi?

    That again the "partners" deceived the grandmaster? If only gas within the country was supplied "practically free of charge", but no, since December 1, all housing and communal services have risen in price by 9%, and for the second time in a year, it's amazing how inflation in statistical reports is 6% (((((

    And from Moldova we have what we need, no money, no gas, you will come. One fig they are skiing in the EU pricked up. Well, with the touching tale about the storage of its gas by Moldova in Ukraine, then when Moldova itself is short of heating, well, even a five-year-old child will not believe in these tales. The regional committee said to give away the ukrams and freeze in the spirit of European solidarity, and so the gas began to be shunted in Ukraine unexpectedly on time.

      In the same place, our enclave, in the event of a blockade of the PMR, will not survive, the same grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from Odessa will easily crush our troops there, which they proposed to Moldova to do, the only thing holding them back is Moldova's unwillingness to enter into conflict.

        Whose troops? There are hardly more than a thousand troops of the RF there, and most of them are local residents with RF passports. We can say that the presence of the Russian Federation there is only political, nominal.

    allegedly in case of termination of gas supplies by Gazprom, although quite recently the head of Moldovagaz, Vadim Cheban, assured the citizens of the republic that the contract with the Russian gas holding was signed for 5 years, and therefore there are no grounds for its termination.

    In those places, the war is actually going on - does the author know? At any moment they can get into the gas pipeline, during the war it happens.

    And who prevents Putin from making a strong-willed decision similar to the EU sanctions against Moldova.
    Forbid them to transport our gas to other regions. Everything and the question is closed.

    voice_rauma, sometimes you have to not just vote, but also occasionally use this very mind .. Justify? Yes, please .. do not eat sloppy .. Firstly: the PMR is an unrecognized (even by Russia) republic that has been in fact under blockade since 92. Secondly, when leaving the republic, the 14th Russian army cut all its tanks and not only them. A number of ammunition were disposed of, and for example, such as MLRS missiles were taken to Russia under the control of the OSCE (the commission that controls this is a French general, two amers of the military and Britons in civilian clothes. Not fake. Tom was a witness) And thirdly: any action against Ukraine will not lead to simply to the capture of the PMR by Ukrainian-Romanian forces, but also to a humanitarian catastrophe in this territory.
