Ukrainian company “Naftogaz” to the end of 2020 expects to receive about three billion dollars through the sale of assets of “Gazprom” imposed by the decision of the Stockholm arbitration court. About it writes the edition “Economic truth” with reference to the statement by the Executive Director of the company Yuriy Vitrenko.
We are talking about collecting $ 2.6 billion, which Gazprom needs Ukrainian side on the court, plus interest. According to Vitrenko, the recovery will begin in mid-2020 and be completed by the end of the same year.
The top Manager of the company said that “Naftogaz” has made seizure of assets of Russian companies in the UK and the Netherlands, and also restrictive measures in Luxembourg and Switzerland. Now Naftogaz is seeking a separate court decisions to get permission to sell the arrested property.
The Stockholm arbitration court has obliged “Gazprom” to pay “Naftogaz” to 4.63 billion for failure to supply gas for transit. However, taking into account the debt of Ukraine to Russia for gas supplies at the previous courts, the amount of debt before “Naftogaz” declined to 2.56 billion dollars.
In Russian companies the court’s decision was appealed, but the Ukrainian side does not want to wait for the outcome of the appeal and began to confiscate the assets of “Gazprom” in foreign jurisdictions. Meanwhile, the amount of the debt of “Gazprom” from-for unwillingness to execute the decision of arbitration is growing every year by almost $ 200 million accrued interest.
