“Moldova is interested in a long-term contract at affordable prices.

Obviously, this energy crisis affects not only us.

We want a contract that we can fulfill, for many years we had strong contractual relations with Gazprom, we fulfilled the contractual conditions, now we are negotiating from a pragmatic point of view, discussing financial and economic issues, we hope that these negotiations will lead to success, "- quoted by RIA Novosti Gavrilitsa.

She also said that the Minister of Infrastructure and Regional Development of Moldova is currently in St. Petersburg for negotiations. 

On October 27, Gazprom head Alexei Miller and Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Spinu, as well as Moldovagaz board chairman Vadim Cheban held negotiations on the terms of a new contract for the supply of Russian gas to the republic.

Earlier Spinu said that negotiations on gas "are going difficult", but Chisinau wants to sign a long-term contract.

He also advocated an independent audit to analyze debt obligations to Gazprom.

Leading analyst of the National Energy Security Fund Igor Yushkov, in an interview with RT, commented on the message that Gazprom may stop gas supplies to Moldova from December 1.
