World with Gazprom will not be assured in Naftogaz

Naftogaz proposes Gazprom to pay compensation and to stop the construction of Nord stream – 2, and then to talk about the settlement.

Settlement agreement between Naftogaz and Gazprom concerning already adopted the Stockholm arbitration decisions is not possible. On Friday, July 20, said the commercial Director of Naftogaz Yuriy Vitrenko in Facebook.

“As we said Gazprom during the trilateral summit, the global agreement already adopted arbitration decisions is not possible. It is even contrary to the essence of the settlement agreements, it was necessary for them to agree to a final decision by arbitration,” he said.

In addition, the arbitration was filed a new lawsuit NAC on Gazprom for compensation of more than $ 12 billion. And, as noted Vitrenko, if Gazprom wants to conclude the agreement for new arbitration proceedings, he may pay the NAK compensation out of court.

However, he added that this may not hold tripartite negotiations on transit after 2019.

“Well, if someone wants to artificially these negotiations to delay, or postpone, must be postponed and the construction of Nord stream – 2, as political and anti-competitive project,” – said Vitrenko.

As you know, the settlement agreement between Gazprom and Naftogaz discussed at the talks in Berlin as one of the options, but decisions on this question.

After negotiations the head of Ukrainian delegation, Minister of foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin ruled out the possibility of extrajudicial settlement of cases in the Stockholm Tribunal.
