The European Commission kept its promise and financially helped Moldova

The European Commission has allocated €60 million to Moldova to overcome the crisis that has arisen in the country due to the gas shortage and difficult negotiations with Gazprom, the Brussels correspondent of Radio Liberty, Rikard Jozwiak published on Twitter, Evropeyska Pravda reports.

“The European Commission today allocated €60 million to Moldova to help it overcome the current energy crisis,” the statement said.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen at a meeting with Moldovan Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița in Brussels confirmed the allocation of funds.

“I would like to reiterate our full support for Moldova. Tomorrow's meeting of the EU-Moldova Association Council will further strengthen our cooperation. In this context, the European Commission is allocating €60 million to help Moldova cope with the current energy crisis,” Ursula von der Leyen wrote on Twitter.

To recap:

On October 22, a state of emergency was declared in Moldova due to critical gas prices. The country cannot agree with the Russian Gazprom on the price for the supply of natural gas.

The Prime Minister of Moldova said that the country would continue negotiations with Gazprom on a new gas supply contract.

On October 25, an official representative of Gazprom said that the company could completely stop gas supplies to the country if Chisinau did not pay off the debt and sign a new contract from December 1.

On October 25, the Moldovan government, for the first time in 30 years, bought natural gas, not from the Russian Gazprom but signed a contract for the supply of 1 million cubic meters of gas with a Polish state-owned company.

Europe said it would help Moldova solve the gas crisis.

Moldova continued to buy gas from European companies and signed another supply contract with a Dutch company.

One of the European publications reported that Gazprom offered Moldova a new gas deal in exchange for weakening ties with the EU.
