Igor Dodon on gas discounts for Moldova: Our advantage is observer status in the EAEU
“I officially asked the leadership of the Russian Federation to consider the possibility of providing Moldova with discounts on gas from September 1 to January 1. That is, for four months, until the end of the year. If this discount is not available, even taking into account the internal resources to be determined by Mr. Cheban, there is a risk of tariff increases. We do not want this,” the President of Moldova said during a briefing for the press.
“Our advantage in this matter is the observer status in the EAEU. For members of the Eurasian Economic Union there is a discount on the supply of gas. But our observer status also allows us to try to claim a reduction in the supply price. Of course, the final decision will be made during a possible meeting with Vladimir Putin in the near future”, he added.
