MOSCOW, August 14. /TASS/. The debt of Naftogaz of Ukraine to Russia’s gas giant Gazprom for gas supplies to the south-east of Ukraine totals $217 mln, Gazprom said in a report on Friday.
Earlier this year Naftogaz stopped gas supplies to the south-east of Ukraine because Gazprom decided to carry out direct supplies to the Luhansk and Donetsk regions of the country.
On June 12, 2015, Gazprom specified the sum of claim to the Ukrainian company in the Stockholm Arbitration Court, which is now $29.2 bln. The hearings on the case are scheduled for February-March 2016.
The court will consider Naftogaz’ counterclaim against Gazprom in September 2016. The verdict is expected in late January 2017.
Naftogaz also specified the sum of its claim to Gazprom which is $ 11-16 bln.
In 2014, both Gazprom and Naftogaz filed mutual claims to the Stockholm Arbitration Court last year on the gas price and debt amounts.
