Revision of gas deal between Russia and Transdniester

The Supreme Soviet of Moldova's breakaway Transdniester region on March 15approved a plan to restructure Transdniester's debt to the Russian gas supplier Gazprom. Details of the plan appear to involve the transfer of debt from Transdniester's gas distributor to the Transdniestrian administration. According to Basa Press, at the beginning of 2007 Transdniester's debt to Gazprom amounted to $1.3 billion.

Changes in the terms of Gazprom’s deals with Transdniester are a delicate matter, as Russia is widely regarded as the guarantor of Transdniester's continued de facto independence from Moldova.
