Russia may file a counter-claim to «Naftogaz of Ukraine», said the Deputy head of the Federation Council Committee on economic policy Valery Vasiliev, adding that he considers this a political case, and predicts that the problems of political and economic nature between Kiev and Moscow will be prolonged.

«Naftogaz of Ukraine» filed a lawsuit against Russia in international arbitration in the Hague with the requirement to indemnify the company for five billion dollars in losses in their assets in Crimea.

«Ukraine and the Ukrainian business trying to use any chance to get Russian money», — said Vasiliev RIA Novosti on Wednesday. According to the Senator, this hopeless way. «Moreover, I am sure that on our part, followed by counter-claims. While we can predict only the fact that not only political conflict, but also economic problems between Russia and Ukraine will become protracted,» — said the legislator.

According to him, neighbouring countries live in constant conflict for too long is impossible, so there is hope that the Ukrainian authorities will understand that you need to recognize results of the referendum in Crimea and that now is Russian land. So, Ukraine will have to respect the opinion of Crimeans, said the MP.

According to the Senator, «when civilized approach need to conduct a serious audit of Russian assets in Ukraine and Ukrainian assets in Russia to develop a mutually satisfactory algorithm for the compensation and promissory obligations to each other».

However, the Ukrainian side behaved improperly – this is illustrated by the banking assets of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, said Vasiliev. «Employees of Russian banks have repeatedly attacked and even mortal danger. This is simply unacceptable,» — said the politician. In his opinion, based on the position of Ukraine in relation to Russia, mutually beneficial audit is unlikely to hold in the near future. «That means court decisions, if they follow, are unlikely to be fulfilled,» — said Vasilyev.
