Moldova gets rid of dependence on gas from Russia - Prime Minister

May 18, 2023

Moldova has gotten rid of its dependence on Russian gas after it reduced consumption following the outbreak of a full-scale war in Ukraine.

This was announced on Thursday by Prime Minister Dorin Recean.

"If at the beginning of the war, 100% of the energy consumed by Moldova came from Russia, today Moldova no longer depends on energy supplies from Russia," Recean said at a security conference in Bucharest.


"Moldova no longer consumes natural gas from Russia, the Republic of Moldova is integrated into the European energy network both technically and commercially," he added.

According to Recean, Romania helped the country cope with energy challenges.

Moldova was almost completely dependent on the Russian gas company Gazprom for gas imports. The supply of natural gas led to frequent disputes between Moldova and Russia.
