Ukraine refused to forgive Russia 22 billion dollars

On November 5, 2019, the head of NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy Andrey Kobolev announced on his Facebook page that Kiev has claims against the Russian PJSC Gazprom for $ 22 billion. This statement came immediately after the head of the Russian Ministry of Energy, Alexander Novak, proposed to cancel the mutual claims and more "do not give rise to absurd lawsuits."

The Russian side offers Naftogaz to “nullify” almost $ 3 billion for the decision of the Stockholm arbitration and abandon the lawsuit for another $ 12 billion. In addition, the AMCU (Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine - eds.) Proposes to refuse a fine of about $ 7 billion. Total - $ 22 billion - "understand and forgive". I seek and do not find in the proposals voiced by the media the counter steps of Russia for comparable amounts. What does “zeroing” of mutual claims look like?

- Kobolev wrote with humor, accompanying the pathos text with a piece of Semyon Slepakov’s song “New Year” - “So, everyone, they forgot the bad, they reset to zero.”

It should be noted that Kobolev is really fun. He is rich, works in a bread place and falls asleep Russia claims, invented in the bowels of his company, with the assistance of American partners. How much fun the rest of the citizens of Ukraine, we do not know yet. However, soon the situation on this issue will be clarified for sure. Indeed, on December 31, 2019, a 10-year contract for the transit of Russian gas through Ukrainian territory ends. And the signing of a new treaty is not yet expected. But there will be another next heating season, and after it more and more. Although, by that time, Kobolev would most likely be somewhere in the USA, where he had recently transferred several million "earned" dollars "for his mother."

In this regard, on November 6, 2019, Gazprom Chairman Alexei Miller, meeting in St. Petersburg with the German Government Commissioner for Gas Transit through Ukraine, Georg Graf Waldersee, said that before concluding a new contract for the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine , it is necessary to solve the "complex of fundamentally important issues." And the settlement of litigation is paramount.

In addition, Miller pointed out the need for Ukraine to determine the volumes of direct purchases of Russian gas, as well as create a certified independent gas transmission operator. However, the creation of an "independent" the operator from Kiev already reported.

    Uncle, give five cents, well, give five cents .... give, I say.

    .... Insolence is the second happiness, I forgive my debts to everyone ..... But it’s interesting that they have nothing to do, and yet this Kobolev has already received millions in bonuses for non-existent debts of the Russian Federation to Ukraine.

    Somehow little was asked, $ 22 billion, and the figure is not even. They would have asked for $ 100 billion already - and the figure is even, and more. laughing As the song says: "A beautiful dream, not yet clear" ... laughing

      I think one winter is enough, people will freeze, sweep away this pro-American power, they’ll catch all the banderlochiks, put them back in the cells (it was enough for someone to open all the cells and release all the banderlogs to freedom). Ask to us in Russia, take for God's sake, feed, heat. Grandmother Vaenga has a prediction that the Slavic peoples will unite in one state (including Bulgaria).

      Those who claim such debts will not freeze in the winter.
