Gazprom confirms: gas deliveries to Moldova could cease on Wednesday due to non-payment

MOSCOW. Nov 24 (Interfax) - Russian gas deliveries to Moldova could indeed cease as soon as on Wednesday, Gazprom spokesperson Sergei Kuprianov said.

"The current gas payment from Moldova has not been received. The 48-hour timeframe after notification on cessation of deliveries due to non-payment expires today," he said.

Moldova was due to file its latest payment on November 22, but the funds were not received as scheduled. As a result, on Monday Gazprom notified its partners that gas deliveries to Moldova would cease in 48 hours.
