Earlier Itar-Tass reported referring to the Ukrainian energy minister Yuriy Prodan that Ukraine intended to shortly transfer $400 million out of its $1.5 billion debt to the Russian gas giant. These $400 million would be disbursed as payment for gas supplied to Ukraine in February, the minister said, adding that Ukraine was planning to shortly pay off current arrears.
