Russia has stopped gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria, after blasts in a breakaway region of neighbouring Moldova forced Ukraine to accuse Russia of seeking to expand the war further into Europe.
Russian energy giant, Gazprom, disclosed this on Wednesday, in Russia’s latest use of gas as a weapon in a conflict that has now entered its third month and claimed thousands of lives.
It would be recalled that this week explosions targeted a state security ministry, a radio tower and military unit in neighbouring Moldova’s region of Transnistria.
These explosions raised the alarm that Moldova could be Russia’s next target in its push into Europe, with Moscow having exploited similar fears after launching its bloody invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
