Moldova refuses to support the Ukrainian plan to stop the transit of Russian gas

Chisinau refused to play with Ukraine against Russia. Moldova refuses to support the Ukrainian plan to stop the transit of Russian gas.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative blaming Ukraine for the disruption of gas talks between Russia and Ukraine and plans to cut gas transit from Russia to the EU.

There is no official position in Chisinau that would deny support to Kyiv. The Ukraine - Russia gas transit contract expires in January 2020. In this context, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, said that there is a risk that from January 1, 2020 the Republic of Moldova will remain without Russian gas, if Ukraine will prohibit its transit on its territory. This specified that Chisinau has solutions in case of cessation.
