Naftogaz announced the preparation of new lawsuits against Russia for $ 7 billion

December 20, 2019 Moscow and Kiev deal on a new contract for the transit of Russian gas to Europe through Ukrainian territory, agreeing on a mutual waiver of all lawsuits and claims. But it was only Russia who thought that “everything was settled” and $ 2,9 billion, according to the Stockholm arbitration, will be enough for Ukraine. And so, on January 8, 2020, the executive director of NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy Yuriy Vitrenko enlightened the public.

He said in a large interview with that the Ukrainian company is going to file updated lawsuits against Russia on assets in the Crimea and is awaiting a decision before the end of 2020 "or in 2021."

We are now filing updated lawsuits against Russia (to the International Tribunal at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague - ed.) For the loss of the ability to use our property in Crimea. And there is a large amount of claims - $ 5 billion excluding interest. But with interest it's already over $ 7 billion

- said Yuri Vitrenko, the son of the famous "progressive socialist" Natalia Vitrenko.

It should be recalled that in September 2017, Naftogaz Ukrainy filed a lawsuit against Russia to the said tribunal for damages in connection with the loss of assets in the Crimea. The list of assets includes the assets of the company Chernomorneftegaz, gas in an underground storage facility in the Crimea, as well as the assets of other Naftogaz Ukrainy subsidiaries. In total, Ukrainian companies (such as Ukrnafta, Oschadbank, Lugzor, Stabil, Everest, Privatbank) and entrepreneurs (oligarch Igor Kolomoisky) filed eight lawsuits to protect their investments in Crimea.

    When a Ukrainian was born, a Jew cried. It’s cheaper to pour real lyuli in the Donbass to donate real money instead of money, because they will not calm down in another way.

    The source of Western sanctions against Russia and the source of Naftogaz’s lawsuit against Russia are the same - Crimea. We will not recall the year 2014, we live in the “now” year. The West will lift the sanctions when Ukraine refuses claims on the Crimea. In Ukraine, too, are not fools, they know that the Crimea can not be returned. But hint someone now there about it - they will sweep away. Now we will consider how Russia relates to the inviolability of private property. After all, she invited the heirs, former owners under the tsar, and offered them their possessions, both in St. Petersburg and Moscow. Those, of course, beautifully refused. Those. Russia “observes” the right to private property (Yukos is an exception, it was a raider seizure, but this is my opinion).
    And now, with the claims of Naftogaz, PrivatBank, and hundreds of future lawsuits, it would not be better for Russia and Ukraine to sit quietly on the sidelines and agree. Russia - I propose to coordinate the amount of payments for the missing Ukrainian businesses in Crimea, Ukraine - coordinate this amount and agrees to consider Crimea Russian. Winning Russia? Embrace of the West, GDP is growing not by 0.5% but by 5%, people are getting richer, healthier, brighter, friendship / trade with Ukraine.
    The win of Ukraine? Grandmas plus friendship / trade with Russia.
    Everyone leads a round dance ....!

      You approached us long before the Crimea. They promised not to expand the borders ... and now, again. Move over. We do not believe you. You are deceivers!

      The source of sanctions is the spoiled Yankees! And do not tell us here for the Crimea.
      It’s better to remember this:

      At the end of January 1951, the “southerners” were advancing again, and on March 14, Seoul changed hands for the fourth time. By March 31, the front line again reached the 38th parallel. At this time, UN Force Commander General Douglas MacArthur, realizing that he could not defeat by conventional means, began to advocate for the limited use of nuclear weapons and in the future for a ground invasion of China to destroy the "northerners" bases in Manchuria. MacArthur was sure that the Soviet Union would not risk joining the war by coming to the rescue of China, but if the USSR did decide to take this step, the United States would not have a more favorable moment, given the absolute superiority in nuclear weapons, in order to carry out its plans in against the Kremlin.

      It’s just sad, because have to pay - the seizure of private property in the West is not welcome. And Russia will pay, not the new owner or Crimea. And Russia will have to pay at the expense of pensions and medicine.
      So it’s not very funny ..

          Well, it has begun!

          A Swiss court ordered Russia to pay Ukraine for doing business in Crimea.

          Amount - over $ 2 million.

          The Swiss Federal Court upheld the verdict issued last April by the International Arbitration Court in Geneva, according to which Russia should pay 12 Ukrainian companies $ 2,1 million for the loss of assets in the Crimea.
          1. Yes, it’s hard to live without money, but with money it’s difficult: all rogue military men are climbing - give, give, give!

        The funniest thing in this situation will be that in the case of the annexed by Russia (the so-called) "Boyko towers", you will have to pay based on the declared initial amount of $ 800 million for two platforms, although it was proved in the courts of Ukraine that the amount of these towers in Malaysia by the current "fiery" oppositionist Boyko, were at least doubled ... Plus, as in the case of $ 3 billion, they will also count the percentages over the years (and on bribes too) ... In general, in Russia, as always - they danced, had fun - counted, wept.

    Why prematurely sprinkle ash on your head and scream: everything is gone! Pay or not pay, ultimately, it will be Russia, not the EU, not the USA, and even more so, not Ukraine. Yes, let them rejoice so far, not to cry later.

    Well, who expected otherwise? Ukrainians must file a counterclaim for the money they ate in the USSR and seek compensation for those who died during the liberation of Ukraine in 1941-45. And to add a lawsuit for Chernobyl and all stolen gas for 39 years of independence ...

    In the case of Ukraine, the terms are more appropriate - extortion, racketeering and robbery.

      Explain to me, Port, why are you so worried about Ukraine with its “extortion, racketeering and robbery”? I understand that since you did not vote for GDP (your words), then you live in Russia. So look around you - are these three words “extortion, racketeering, robbery” irrelevant to Russia too? The fact that you do not listen to “nightingale” is wonderful, but you are listening / reading / watching something else! So what?
      Is everything wonderful in the native land?
      Maybe you remember Pan Zyuzyu performed by Vysokovsky. His drunk hero calls home, explains everything to his wife and asks her to tell “What is There in Greece”. To the wife’s question, “Why do you need to know this?”, He answers, “I am worried!”
      You yourself, your country has problems. So help the country, and in this way you will help yourself. And in Ukraine they will sort it out themselves, it is easier for them to do this than for the Russians. Why is it easier? I know, but I won’t say ....
      This is all written for you living in Russia. If you live in Ukraine, then go ahead! Correct!

    I am violet to ukroreih from the word at all, but when dill parasites try to live at the expense of the people of Russia and at their expense, they must be disposed of.
  16. You know, gentlemen, Ukrainians from the age of 91 behave like annoying impoverished homeless people who climb and climb with endless claims to Russia. And only one thing is heard from them: give, give, give!
    And until they get it right, they won’t get rid of it!
    That’s because they took the goods away when in 2008 they were not afraid to clean their faces!
