Витренко ответил Медведеву насчет транзита газа

Vitrenko said that collecting claims against Gazprom without compensation is impossible

Medvedev said that Ukraine must stop trying to obtain the debts with Gazprom to agree on gas transit. Vitrenko said that to take the claim in the Stockholm arbitration without compensation is impossible.

Take the claim in the Stockholm arbitration without adequate compensation, and to forgive Gazprom $3 billion debt for the agreement on gas transit through Ukraine is impossible. This was stated by Executive Director of NAK Naftogaz of Ukraine Yuriy Vitrenko in Facebook on Saturday, December 7.

According to him, the execution of the decision Stockholmska arbitration is part of the “agreements” that were reached in 2009.

“Naftogaz and Gazprom agreed in the contract that the arbitration decision is “final and binding”. Therefore, the “zero option” – is primarily to implement the decision of the arbitration, to the debt of Gazprom to Naftogaz equal to zero. Showing all of constructiveness in its position, we agree to take the debt with gas,” – said Vitrenko.

Recall that Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that to achieve agreement on the transit of Russian gas Ukraine needs to abandon the decision of the Stockholm arbitration on the debt of Gazprom.

Earlier Gazprom had sent Naftogaz official transit offer to extend the contract or sign a new one year. The Russian company demands to withdraw from lawsuits, and to resume the direct purchase of gas. Naftogaz in its response, refused to write off $ 3 billion of debt the Russian company.
