Ceban stressed that there is nothing wrong with Russian fuel despite the fact that the Moldovan government failed to comply with the agreement on the deadlines for the signing of an deal to pay off the debt, this official said on his Telegram channel on Saturday.
One of the main terms under which the Russian company Gazprom agreed in October, 2021, to extend the contract to supply gas to Moldova for another five years was the repayment of the fuel debt and timely payments.
At that time, the Moldovan executive committed to hire a foreign auditor to look over its debt with Gazprom before May 1, 2022, but this did not happen.
Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister, Andrei Spinu, announced that his country was granted an extension until October 1, but the Moldovan party insisted on a deadline until late March.
Since then, Moldovan senior officials have expressed their concern over a possible suspension of gas supply on October 1.
