MOSCOW, June 16, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will resume gas supplies to Ukraine only after it pays the debt and makes a prepayment, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote on his Facebook account on Monday, June 16.
Gazprom started supplying gas to Ukraine on a prepayment basis from 10:00 June 16 for its failure to pay for the previous supplies. The deadline for the payment of the debt expired on Monday morning.
Ukraine’s debt is 4.458 billion U.S. dollars, including 1.451 billion U.S. dollars for November and December 2013 and 3.007 billion U.S. dollars for April and May 2014.
Medvedev said earlier in the day that Ukraine had artificially created the gas crisis even though it had been offered extremely good terms but Kiev turned them down.
