20 parties have registered in the current election campaign. Many people say it is a too big number for such a small country as Moldova. At the same time, much more parties could take part in the election campaign.

According to them, the means will be used for repairing local temples and financing the See's activities during the forthcoming visit of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, His Holiness Kirill, to Moldova scheduled for October.

The money will be coming in several tranches, as this was agreed upon last March between the Metropolitan of Chisinau and All Moldova, Vladimir, and GazPromBank officials.

At that March meeting in Moldova, the Moldovan Metropolitan See delegation expressed a wish to open a GazPromBank branch in Chisinau before the end of 2011. Metropolitan See Secretary Vadim Cheibas said then that the Moldovan Church would like to have a GazPromBank branch in the republic to help finance local parishes and build new churches and monasteries etc.

GazPromBank is one of the significant-most banks in the Russian Federation and the fourth strongest in Central and Eastern Europe.
