Ukraine’s debt burden

August 29, IMF Board of Directors discusses the second tranche for Ukraine amounting to $1.4 billion, which was postponed due to instability in south-eastern Ukraine.

In the beginning of October, Poland resumed reverse gas flows to Ukraine after a temporary halt due to works on the pipeline agreed between the Polish and Ukrainian gas transportation operators. Reverse flows were halted on October 2 and resumed several hours later.

Russia-Ukraine gas dispute

Russia stopped gas flows to Ukraine in June over an unsettled dispute over debt and gas prices. Russia said it is ready to resume natural gas supplies to Ukraine if Kiev repays its gas debt and makes advance payments for new gas deliveries.

The Naftogaz oil and gas company stopped paying for the consumed Russian natural gas on March 25. As of August 1, the overall debt of Naftogaz to Gazprom for supplied gas totaled about $5.3 billion.
