The Iasi-Ungheni gas interconnector, the construction of which began in late August, is expected to improve Moldova’s energy security, bring commercial benefits to both Moldova and Romania, and contribute to the physical integration of the European gas market. The real raison d'être of the new pipeline is, however, rather geopolitical in nature. Though far from becoming a game-changer, it can still constitute a moderate step towards reducing Russian influence in Moldova and the region. This is why Central European countries should not fall short of backing Moldova in its efforts to complete the project and in re-assuming its obligations as an Energy Community member.
