Russia’s energy giant Gazprom will stop gas supplies to Moldova in 48 hours since Chisinau has failed to pay its current gas consumption debt, a spokesman for the company’s board chairman has announced on Monday.

“Today is the scheduled date of payment. Yet, there is no payment,” Sergey Kupriyanov, Gazprom board chairman’s spokesman, said in a statement, adding that the energy giant is “extremely disappointed” with Moldova’s failure to fulfill its obligations under the recently extended contract.

The deal was struck in late October following weeks of stalled talks that almost led to an energy crisis in Moldova. Eventually, the contract was extended for five years and the Russian giant started pumping gas to Moldova on November 1.
