#Gazprom und #Moldova haben einen neuen Liefervertrag unterzeichnet. Lieferstopp damit abgewendet.
Details zum Vertrag gibt´s kaum.
Es scheint aber, dass der Konzern in allen Punkten nachgegeben hat.
Dies dürfte mit den weit ambitionierteren Zielen zusammenhängen.
Zur Erinnerung.
Dem Land drohte ein Lieferstopp.
Der Grund: der Liefervertrag lief noch im September aus. Ein neuer musste schnell geschlossen.
Der Konzern forderte von #Moldova erst die Begleichung seiner Schulden. Kisinau weigerte sich
Hier mehr👇
Nun haben die Seiten einen neuen Vertrag für 5 Jahre geschlossen.
Genaue Konditionen werden nicht bekannt gegeben, aber es scheint, dass Gazprom in allen Fragen nachgegeben hat:
- Preis wird nach mld.Vorschlag festgelegt,
- Schulden müssen vorerst nicht beglichen werden.

Die Energiemärkte sind derzeit eh in Aufruhr, ausgerechnet jetzt entbrannte zwischen #Gazprom und #Moldova ein neuer Gasstreit.
Es geht um neuen Liefervertrag und gewaltige Schulden.
Gazprom droht mit Lieferstopp.
Es könnte den gesamten Gasmarkt wieder in Wallung bringen
Zunächst als Anmerkung:
Moldau hat echtes Pech mit dem Timing.
Ausgerechnet jetzt, wo die Gaspreise wegen der weltweiten Nachfrage, durch die Decke schossen, muss Kisinau einen neuen Liefervertrag aushandeln.
Ein schlechteres Timing, um über Preise zu reden, gibt es nicht.
Brisanter weise ist aber noch nicht einmal der Preis an sich der Hauptstreitpunkt zwischen Gazprom und Moldau.
Gazprom hat dem Land einen Rabatt von 25% angeboten, sodass die Preise deutlich unter dem Weltmarktpreis liegen würden.
Dat wäre also weniger das Problem.

#Moldova: Some updates about the gas supply from Russia. The PM Gavrilita spelt out some details about the situation on the domestic energy market:
1) Moldova received some volumes of gas from Romania via the Iasi-Ungheni pipeline, finalized last year. The quantity of the volumes is not divulged. They were necessary to balance the pressure in the gas pipeline system.
2) Answering questions, the PM said that the government started the negotiations in September. She reported that the Ministry of Infrastructure Spinu is in Warsaw to discuss with the government and the Polish energy companies about the opportunities to import gas.

#Moldova: PM Gavrilita and MFA Popescu met with various EU officials in Brussels. The most relevant so far has been that of the High Representative / Vice-President of the Borrell Commission. Here are some conclusions: ⤵️
1) The EU official congratulated the Moldovan officials on the electoral victory (that occurred more than two months ago); 2) He stressed that the government has a strong mandate to advance reforms, which is also a “great honor” and a “great responsibility”;⤵️
3) The rule of law is something that Borrell emphasized when speaking of bilateral dialogue, as well as democracy and human rights. 4) The EU strongly supports the new government's reform agenda, including the fight against corruption, Borrell noted.⤵️

1. Peter Dickinson​ asked for the @AtlanticCouncil about #Ukraine's main achievement since 1991. My following uncut answer was a bit broader and also about #Georgia and #Moldova.…
2. Post-Soviet #Ukraine’s, #Georgia’s and #Moldova’s biggest achievements have been their conclusions of Association Agreements with the #EuropeanUnion. The 2004 #OrangeRevolution was a precondition for Kyiv’s start of negotiations with Brussels in 2008.
3. The 2013-14 #RevolutionofDignity, in turn, was crucial to sign the #EU deal initialed in 2012. Ukraine’s two uprisings were necessary but not sufficient conditions for the pact’s adoption in September 2014 and ratification by July 2017.

#Moldova: Putin's administration envoy Dmitry Kozak, who also oversees the Moldavian file (in particular, the settlement of the Transnistrian conflict) prepares for a trip to Chisinau. Two things it is important to keep in mind. First, President Sandu did not visit Moscow, ⤵️
although she did travel to various European capitals, including the EU. Second, the government program designed by Gavrilita's cabinet alludes to Moldova pursuing pragmatic and predictable relations with Russia. At the same time, the withdrawal of Russian arms & military forces⤵️
is also indicated as a priority in the dialogue with Moscow. It is unusual for a senior Russian official to come to Moldova, even before an official call occurred between new MFA Nicu Popescu (@nicupopescu) and Russian MFA Sergey Lavrov. Apparently, Kozak comes to Chisinau⤵️

#Moldova election day, July 11 - about 48.28% of the registered voters have exercised their right to elect by 21.43hrs in the Republic of Moldova and abroad. This is a considerably lower percentage than during Presidential elections:
2. The approximate distribution by gender and age of the voters in #Modova elections today (as it was recorded at 21.43hrs Moldovan time) is aprox 54% women voters and aprox. 45% men.
3. Preliminary exit poll data - based on phone interviews and w/o Transnistrian region - was presented at around 20.00hrs #Moldova time with PAS (President Sandu's) in lead. Yet, exit polls in the previous elections have been wildly inaccurate, resulting in confusion.

🕯️Today, on the 80th anniversary of the mass deportations in the Baltic states by the #Soviet Union occupation forces, we are yet again reminded of the crimes perpetrated by this bloody regime:
▪️ On the night of 13–14 June 1941, the NKVD, the #Soviet secret service, started the operation aimed at purging the Baltic space of the most active anti-Soviet forces.
▪️ Tens of thousands of people were deported to the #Soviet Far East without trials in whole families (check the infographic below for the breakdown by countries).

#Moldova: The Presidents Sandu and Zelensky signed two memorandums. The first one stretches over the strategic bilateral cooperation and the synchronization of the steps regionally. 1) In this sense, Sandu wants Moldova to join Ukraine’s bid to adhere the “3 Seas” initiative.

#Moldova: The president Sandu is in Kyiv in her first official visit abroad. She and her team went by car (that is quite strange security-wise). 1) Her agenda is filled with a several symbolic ceremonies of commemorating the victims of Holodomor and the “Hevenly Hundred Heroes”.
2) Sandu is expected to sign several bilateral documents. There is zero transparency about what is to be signed. The Moldovan and the Ukrainian presidency offices didn’t disclose any info about that. 3) President Sandu will also meet with the Ukrainian PM and Speaker of Rada.
4) The agenda press-release from Zelensky’s office tells that the two presidents will hold negotiations (it’s unclear in what exactly). Nothing was communicated about negotiations by the Moldovan side 👇

#EU #Brussels #Coronavirus #vaccine

A number of EU countries have asked Brussels to help the neighboring countries to the east with vaccination. The foreign ministers of 13 eastern and northern member states wrote to the EU Commission to this effect.
"We think that our borders will not be safe if we do not extend our support to our direct neighbors," declared the government representatives of #Bulgaria, #Croatia, the #CzechRepublic, #Denmark, #Estonia, #Finland, #Hungary, #Latvia, #Lithuania,
#Poland, #Romania, #Slovakia and #Sweden. Access to vaccines must be made easier for the eastern partners. The EU is already supporting non-member states in the Balkans as part of its vaccination strategy. 70 million euros from the EU budget are available for this.
