Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin hinted in a conference in Chisinau on Monday if Moldova signs the Association Agreement with the European Union in November in Vilnius, Russia might stop the flow of the natural gas delivered to the country during winter.

"We hope you will not freeze in winter," Dmitry Rogozin alerted.

Another suggestion was made to the Transdniester region. Rogozin prompted that the closer step toward European integration could make some complication in resolving the conflict over the breakaway Transdniester area.

This region broke away from Moldova in the early 1990s and is being supported by the Moskow. In the first half of this year the government of the Russian Federation provided almost 500 million rubles for Transdniestria as humanitarian aid.

Russia's threatening comes after Moldova and Romania started works of a joint pipeline a week ago. The new pipeline is designed to help Moldova to become partly-independent from the Russian energy resources.

He hinted that closer relations with the EU would mean "cutting relations" with Russia, with grave consequences for Moldovan goods, migrant workers, and Transdniester.

While the Romanian President Traian Basescu has told Moldova that Bucharest fully backs Chisinau's bid to sign an agreement on closer ties with the European Union. And states „Moldova has to choose its own patch toward independence."
