New lawsuit by Ukrainian Naftogaz will leave Gazprom without money


For Russian economics dark times come. There is little “oil war” for us, which has dropped quotes more than twice and threatening as a result of enormous restrictions on production, the coronavirus pandemic, which has paralyzed the country's normal vital functions, so now Gazprom may go bankrupt.


According to IFRS, the financial cushion of our "national treasure" is 960,5 billion rubles, or 12,7 billion dollars. Ukrainian partners are preparing another lawsuit against the state corporation for an amount exceeding it, namely, 17,3 billion. And this is not all claims to the monopolist.

The head of Naftogaz Yuri Vitrenko pleased his subscribers on the social network by posting the following content:

My team clearly formulated and submitted for approval by the Naftogaz Supervisory Board additional “questions” to Gazprom for another $ 17,3 billion.


What exactly is the essence of the next financial claims of the Independent to the Russian gas company is not yet known. Domestic “experts” and “analysts” reassure the agitated public by the fact that “Naftogaz” doesn’t shine anything in the court, and its leader Vitrenko is simply filling his price in front of Kiev, fearing to lose a warm little place.

Well, perhaps it is. However, one should not forget that the same “experts” and “analysts” beat themselves in the chest last year, saying that Gazprom would not pay Naftogaz the fine awarded by the Stockholm arbitration and would not conclude a new transit agreement. As a result, the agreement was signed on conditions that were very unfavorable for Russia, and the fine was paid, moreover, with decent fines that ran along it.

As an argument that the conclusion of the enslaving contract was not a complete "assault", they popularly explained to us that Gazprom had canceled all claims against it. It soon became clear that “zeroing” works well only with rewriting the Constitution for the president. It turned out that the top managers of Gazprom took the issue of Crimean assets out of the question, for which the defendant to Ukraine would no longer be the monopolist, but Russia as a state.

Now here are some lawsuits worth $ 17,3 billion. How is it that this issue is raised again if the parties abandoned the claims?

In fact, everything is a little more complicated. Naftogaz cannot renounce its rights in principle, stating that it will no longer file any claims. Only specific situations can be amicably resolved by taking the appropriate lawsuits or terminating the antitrust proceedings. You can frivolously ironize the Ukrainian side, but do not forget that they have their own legal experts who know that the Stockholm arbitration favors them. It is possible that the lawyers of Gazprom overlooked something.

Another fresh example speaks of the fact that the top management of the state-owned company and its legal department do not grab stars from the sky. Poland, represented by its energy group PGNiG, said at the end of last month that it had also won a lawsuit against Gazprom. As part of its Stockholm arbitration brought the cost of gas for the Poles to the European level for the period from 2014 to 2020. This means that our “national treasure” has hit the next $ 1,5 billion price difference that the corporation now owes to Warsaw.

If these 1,5 billion are added to the 17,3 billion required by Ukraine, the total amount of claims decently covers the “airbag” of the monopolist. It is clear that the state will not allow bankruptcy of the company, but its problems will obviously be solved at the expense of the federal budget, which is bursting at the seams against the background of the "oil war" and quarantine, and price increases for its own population.

And where to go? Someone has to pay for the results of the activities of the “valuable personnel” leading the Russian oil and gas sector.

      That's for sure. It is only liberals in the West who have no corruption and everything is so honest and incorruptible, and certainly not politically unbiased. And as you "dig", the Nobel Prize is approved in Langley and the Dalai Lama, supported by the CIA. And when you look at an independent documentary like "Health" by Michael Moore ... You just want to say - "and these people forbid us to pick our noses." Particularly touching is the recollection of how the former President of Ukraine Yushchenko sued Romania over the shelf, if anyone does not remember. Tell me, well, here's how, what stupid person could have hoped that the European Court will sue in the future the oil and gas shelf, some unfinished Ukraine? And not a member of the European Union Romania? So with the collapse of the USSR, international law and all international institutions collapsed. They all became biased and biased at the suggestion of the United States.

    All cheers patriotic screamers note.

    Russia agreed to reduce oil production under the OPEC + deal by 14 percent from the level of the first quarter of 2020. This was reported by TASS with reference to a representative of the Ministry of Energy.
    It is noted that Russia can take such a step in the event of a proportional decrease in other countries of its share in total production. “Yes, we are ready to reduce by 1,6 million barrels per day, I confirm,” the source said.
    US President Donald Trump, in turn, refused to negotiate a reduction in oil production with other countries.

      In this the dog rummaged. The question is different: will Russia reduce production if other countries do not agree?
      Supplement:

      14 percent of the level first quarter of 2020

      Another dog rummaged here. The Saudis want to count on the level of production on April 1, 2020.
      There are still more questions than answers.

      There is a problem and it is huge. And the States have every trump card to play this game according to their own rules. I’m already tired of repeating - an exit for Russia is to stop playing according to cheating rules. No agreements should be. Yes, they are not needed in such a decline in consumption. What will change the proportional decrease by 14% if the decline in consumption is indicated from 20 to 40%? Say, let it be 30%.

    Stockholm arbitration brought the cost of gas for Poles to the European level for the period from 2014 to 2020.

    - And what, now the Stockholm court determines at what price to Russia to sell oil and gas to the Poles? And why, for example, is not the Krasnoyarsk court? The Krasnoyarsk Territory is larger than Sweden, together with its Stockholm! It is up to him to decide what price to sell!
    And why did Russia agree not to take money from Ukraine under the previous contract for "Take it or Pay?" There's only penalty money that any Stockholm will go bankrupt, not just Naftogaz. If you have not complied with the terms of the contract, then why such a contract?

      Stockholm arbitration has already shown that any contract is not worth a scrap of paper. If the terms of payment can be changed after the fact, then why do I need a contract?
      Now the Poles want to conclude a new treaty. Does Russia need him? If after a couple of years the terms of the contract can be changed by a third party?

    Sergey, you were unable to separate the meat from the flies in the article. Ukraine will submit a new lawsuit against Gazprom as the owner of Ukrainian property in Crimea, i.e. to the depressed business. And since Russia was pushing out the business, Russia will have to pay. I have repeatedly repeated that you will have to pay for property and business squeezed in Crimea. And not only for gas / oil, but also for banks, fish, wine and other businesses. It’s best to sit down in Russia and Ukraine and amicably resolve the issue, otherwise this tyagomotin will last for many years and Russia will pay. But with interest and scandals.
    Declaring that “we must not do anything” is stubbornness. And the amers have a saying -

      The problem is not amicability. The problem lies in our ignorance of the causes that led to disastrous results. Historically there was a Gordian knot. And there was Alexander, who was bullied by all sages. But we have no such Alexander and are not expected. The treaties were based on the concept of Roman law. And Western democracies put it on him. With what I congratulate Russia. Alexander, ay.

    Dark times are beginning for the Russian economy. Little to us is the "oil war" dropped quotes more than two times and threatening as a result of enormous restrictions on production, the coronavirus pandemic that paralyzed the country's normal life, so now Gazprom may go bankrupt.

    So you "do not confuse personal wool with the state." I understand, of course, it's a shame for the owners, but brace yourself, keep yourself in control. yes

    but his problems will obviously be solved at the expense of the federal budget, which is bursting at the seams against the background of the "oil war" and quarantine, and price increases for its own population.

    Examples of litigation listed everything to a single one, but when it came to raising gas prices and saving Gazprom from the budget, did you suddenly have problems with memory? Such a development of events was also prophesied repeatedly, if I am not mistaken, and you personally, but somehow it did not work out?
