Kiev managed to get more than 2 billion dollars in fine from Gazprom

Despite the fact that less than a month is left until the end of the contract on the transit of Russian gas, the Ukrainian company Naftogaz continues to aggravate its already complicated relations with Gazprom.

During an interview with, the head of the Ukrainian company, Andrei Kobolev, said that Ukraine had not paid for the gas that was supplied by the Russian company in 2014-2015.

According to him, the amount of $ 2,1 billion went to repay compensation at the verdict of the Stockholm arbitration and amounted to 45% of the total amount.

According to estimates by the head of the Ukrainian company, today, taking into account interest, the amount of Gazprom's debt is about three billion dollars.

Kobolev claims that the assets of the Russian gas monopoly were seized in many jurisdictions, and therefore, in the event Gazprom refuses to pay, local courts will allow them to be sold.

It should be noted that financial market experts attribute the refusal of the Russian company to place Eurobonds precisely to the threat of their arrest at the request of Ukraine, as it happened earlier when Gazprom bonds issued in yen were arrested.

The company itself said that the issue of bonds was not officially announced, so in this case we can’t talk about cancellation.

At the end of the interview, Kobolev suggested that the failure to sign a new transit contract would double the cost of gas in the European market.

    This is the Kremlin’s multimode.
    After all, the authorities in Kiev will tear each other, failing to divide the loot equally.
    And anarchy will begin throughout Ukraine.

      Only often as a result of "such multiple moves", in the end, we either raise gas prices, or the retirement age, or something else ..

    Well, we remember, we gave a loan to Ukraine 3 billion, and so what? It seems that at first they wanted to receive, even they appealed to the courts, the courts sentenced to give money to Russia, and in the outskirts they laughed and said - we won’t give anything to you. So I have a question, what - forgive them? It is necessary to raise the issue, again to the courts, to seize their property, in a word - to act, and not sit in impotence.

    Gazprom crawled, crawled again.
    But they do not care. Vipam - premiums, and the budget will cover the costs.

    As Lavrenty Pavlovich Beria said:

    Each problem has a last name, first name, and middle name.

    I would like to know which stupid person (full name, position) signed such contracts, including those who put the approving signatures), which bastard (full name) appointed the first moron? How these giants of thought will be responsible (financially, criminally) for the damage done to the state and people of Russia. - The amount of the claim against the property of "seeing" statesmen (and members of their families) and the number of the camp where they will work, be corrected and repent for their actions. Although this is a fantasy, it is better to shoot them right away.
    Glory to the Communist Party of China. They know how to work with such figures ..
