The message is the thesis that Gazprom has chosen the UK jurisdiction “courts which have protected the assets of Gazprom claims Naftogaz”. We don’t know who the author of the thesis, but we assume that his aim is to lull potential investors Gazprom, because the UK is one of the most successful jurisdictions for Naftogaz from the point of view of the process of compulsory execution of Arbitration decision”, – stated in the message.
