The huge debts incurred by “MoldovaGaz” towards “Gazprom” in the amount of USD 7.55 billion at the end of 2020, which accounts for circa 80% of Moldova GDP, impose a severe unprecedented risk on the country economic and social security. “MoldovaGaz” discloses no detailed information on consolidated financial statements, nor any information of public interest, which would enable us to carry out an assessment of company efficiency and observance of the national interest.
