Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Wednesday at a meeting with Putin that Ukraine’s overall debt to Russia stands at $16.6 billion.

“$3 billion is Ukraine’s debt, the accumulated gas debt stands at $2.2 billion, and what we consider Russia's profit shortfall, at $11.4 billion, in total, $16.6 billion,” Medvedev said.

Ukraine’s debt for gas supplies from Russia as of early April stands at $2.238 billion, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak added.
