The authorities of Moldova faced a shortage of electricity, and therefore they had to urgently purchase a resource. This was reported by Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Infrastructure Andrei Spinu.

“Energocom (an energy supply company in Chisinau — approx. URA.RU) bought electricity on the Romanian exchange every day, but today the prices on the European market have risen sharply,” Spinu said on the air of the TV channel Pro TV. According to him, on Monday, November 28, the company failed to purchase electricity for the whole day. He noted that the state enterprise Moldelectrica had agreed on an emergency purchase of electricity.

At the same time, it is noted that today the Moldavskaya GRES is the only source of energy in the country. Andrei Spinu stressed that the authorities continue to negotiate with the State District Power Plant in order to find out whether cooperation will continue in December.

Earlier, on October 10, Ukraine announced the cessation of electricity exports to Moldova after massive shelling of energy infrastructure facilities by Russian troops. These actions were Russia’s response to the terrorist attack with the undermining of the Crimean bridge. About 30% of the total electricity consumption in Moldova was purchased from Ukraine. To date, Moldavskaya GRES cannot make up for this volume, moreover, it is forced to reduce electricity production due to the limitation of gas supplies from the Russian Gazprom.
