Presidential election took place in Moldova on November 1. According to results of exit polls conducted on the Watchdog's orders, there will be a second round; current head of the state Igor Dodon will face Maia Sandu, the ex-Prime Minister.
Dodon gained 40.6 percent of votes; Sandu had 34.6 in the first round, where another six candidates ran for the main office in this country.
Earlier, Serhiy Makohon, Director of Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine said Moldova will store gas reserves in Ukrainian underground storage facilities. The first supplies have already begun. He also noted that the work on the issue of storing gas reserves in Ukraine began in summer 2019, when there was uncertainty with the continuation of transit through Ukraine.
"According to Moldovagaz, it is planned to pump about 100 million cubic meters of gas during October-November. Such a reserve guarantees the energy security of Moldova and reduces dependence on a single gas supplier," Serhiy Makohon stated.
