Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin made a private visit to Russia on 26-27 November. Flux reported on 26 November that, while in Moscow, Voronin attempted to find a solution for his country's energy crisis. But, according to "Kommersant-Daily", Voronin was denied meetings with Kremlin officials.
Flux quoted unidentified diplomatic sources as saying that prior to Voronin's visit, on 22-24 November, a Moldovan delegation went to Moscow to negotiate with state-controlled Gazprom over the cost of gas deliveries. Earlier in November, the Cuciurgan power plant in Moldova's breakaway Transdniester region cut off energy supplies to other parts of Moldova.
