Head of the NJSC «Naftogaz of Ukraine» Yuriy Vitrenko said that the amount of the fine «Gazprom» for the «failure» of the decision of the Stockholm arbitration has already exceeded one hundred million dollars. He declared it in interview to the Ukrainian «5 channel».

According to him, this sum «Gazprom» will be obliged to pay together with a debt of $ 2.5 billion.

«Already approximately $ 100 million came running, as you call it, penalties, or interest. If, for example, to assess costs of bailiffs, in fact it would be hundreds of millions of dollars. And if they complied with the decision, for example in March, you would pay only two and a half billion», — said Vitrenko, while adding that the penalty amount grows to half a million dollars a day.

The head of «Naftogaz» also said that the appeal of «Gazprom» the decision of the Stockholm arbitration does not suspend the execution of the judgment, and in Switzerland, the Netherlands and the UK continues forced seizure of assets of Russian companies.

«The appeal is considered. Was the manipulation of «Gazprom» allegedly appeal means no need to implement the decision of the arbitration. But ongoing enforcement. It is an obvious fact that the submission of an appeal does not suspend the enforcement of the arbitration» — said Vitrenko.

In addition, he believes that the arrest of the Russian assets of the company causes some harm to its operational activities. In particular, it considerably slows down the construction of «Nord stream-2».

In early March, the Stockholm arbitration has satisfied the requirements of Ukrainian of «Naftogaz» to «Gazprom» on the claim for gas transit in the amount 4,673 billion dollars. The arbitrators took into account previously awarded in favor of «Gazprom» amount of the contract and held the set-off claims. In the end, the Russian company must pay to the Ukrainian of 2.56 billion dollars. In total «Naftogaz» demanded from «Gazprom» of $ 17 billion.

Moscow appealed the decision, and also announced the termination of contracts with Kiev.

Ukraine announced the beginning of enforcement tools and support in the courts of its requests for the seizure of assets of «Gazprom» in Switzerland, the Netherlands and the UK.
