Ukraine refused to be reconciled with Russia


The director of Ukrainian Naftogaz Yury Vitrenko called absurd the proposal of the head of the Russian Ministry of Energy Alexander Novak to conclude the settlement agreement between Gazprom and Naftogaz, Kommersant reports. According to Vitrenko, the agreement assumes that Naftogaz at least will refuse from 2.8 billion dollars which the Russian side by a court decision has to pay it. As at most, according to him, the Ukrainian company "will also return to the status of the debtor under the provision of the contract "take or pay" (more than 80 billion until the end of 2019) for the gas which is selected in 2014-2015 (about 4 billion dollars)". Vitrenko added that it is necessary to go to these victims for the sake of continuation of the current contract for transit. "As soon as Gazprom will complete "Nord Stream-2" and "The Turkish stream", it will stop transit through Ukraine, and we under this contract will not begin to receive money. "Settlement agreement", absurd for us, isn't it?" — he said. On June 13 Novak said that Russia offered Ukraine the settlement agreement on trial of Gazprom and Naftogaz in the Stockholm arbitration. The minister noted that Kiev is not ready to sign the new contract for transit of gas yet on the conditions similar to that work for the European buyers. "It is simpler to prolong acting" — he told. Earlier in June the head of Naftogaz Andrey Kobolev reported that he is ready to discuss with Gazprom any new contracts for delivery or transit of gas only in a tripartite format. He specified that it is more favorable to Ukraine to buy gas in Europe, but not in Russia. What occurs in Russia and in the world? We explain on our YouTube channel. Subscribe!
