Decision on prepayment for Naftogaz to come after EU responds to Putin’s letter

Naftogaz failed to pay for the March delivery of Russian natural gas worth over $500 million

MOSCOW, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The decision to transfer Naftogaz to prepayment mode will be made when the European Union responds to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s letter sent to 18 European leaders, Russian natural gas giant Gazprom Board Chairman Viktor Zubkov said Thursday.

“Let’s see what reaction and position the EU and other countries where Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] sent his letter will have. It’s one of the aspects that we should take into account. So we will see what kind of answer they will give,” Zubkov said.
