“Ukraine’s Naftogaz did not accept $10.54 million which Gazprom transferred as additional payment for Russian gas transit via Ukraine in July and has returned the payment to the contract party,” Naftogaz said.
The Ukrainian company noted that “the current situation is caused by disagreements between the two companies over the gas transit price through Ukraine.”
“Gazprom has earlier transferred an advance payment for transit supplies. The formula calculating the transit price takes into account the price for Russian gas delivery to Ukraine. According to Naftogaz’s estimates, the prepayment has not been used fully,” the Ukrainian company said.
On August 21, Ukraine’s Naftogaz said that they had found Gazprom’s additional payment “erroneous” for July gas transit supplies.
Gazprom has paid additionally $10.54 million to Naftogaz for July gas transit delivery via Ukraine despite Ukrainian debts, Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said earlier.
