MOSCOW, May 21. /TASS/. The Russian gas producer Gazprom received another $30 mln of prepayment for gas supplies from Naftogaz of Ukraine, the company reported Thursday.
"Today another $30 mln were transferred to Gazprom’s payment account from Naftogaz of Ukraine as prepayment for Russian gas supplies in May," the report said.
As was reported earlier previous payments were made on May 13 and 14. Naftogaz transferred $30 mln on May 13 and $32 mln on May 14 to Russia’s Gazprom.
CEO of Russian gas producer Alexey Miller said Ukraine’s need in the Russian natural gas has doubled since May 1.
