MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s gas producer Gazprom supplied 2.45 billion cubic meters of natural gas worth $658.4 million to Ukraine in January 2014, the company said on Monday, February 3.
Naftogaz Ukrainy’s debt to Gazprom for the gas supplied in 2013 is $2.6 billion.
Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller met with Ukraine’s acting Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Boiko earlier in the day to discuss the issue of payments for current gas supplies and the payment of the debt for the gas delivered last year.
They also discussed the transit of Russian gas to Europe via Ukraine.
According to Naftogaz Ukrainy, it is owed almost 27 billion hryvnia ($3.4 billion) by the housing maintenance and utility companies. “It [the debt] increased by 10 billion hryvnia ($1.25 billion) in the last three months alone,” the company said.
Acting Energy and Coal Industry Minister Eduard Stavitsky said earlier that Naftogaz Ukrainy was gradually paying the debt to Gazprom for the gas supplied in 2013.
He also said that Kiev was not engaged in debt rescheduling negotiations with Russia. “There is no rescheduling on the agenda right now,” he said, adding that the entire debt of $2.7 billion was the liability of Naftogaz Ukrainy alone.
