The Moldovan government continues to negotiate with the Russian Federation and Gazprom to sign a long-term agreement on natural gas supplies. In terms of decreasing pressure in the national distribution network, purchasing from alternative sources allows maintaining the supply of natural gas to consumers.

The tariff that citizens pay for natural gas remains unchanged.
