Vadim Cheban, Chairman of the Board of Moldovagaz, stated that at this stage the organization is working out a mechanism with the government to repay Gazprom's current debt, DW reports.

"Now we are talking about the cash gap that has formed in our country," the chairman of the board stated.

According to Vadim Cheban, in October the Old Tariff for Consumers was in force, and from November 1 the tariff increased, but it was done only on November 10. In this regard, there were difficulties with the payment.

In turn, a representative of Gazprom, Sergei Kupriyanov, said that Gazprom was "extremely disappointed with Moldova's failure to fulfill its contractual obligations."

As it was reported earlier, Russian company Gazprom threatened to cut the gas supplies for Moldova within 48 hours.

According to an official, the Moldovan side does not play for the fuel that was already supplied, ignoring its commitments.

Earlier, in late October Moldova made a deal with Gazprom, asking to extend the contract for gas supplies for another five years. On November 1, first gas supplies under the new contract reached the country.
