The Court of Switzerland prohibited the companies Nord Stream AG and Nord Stream 2 AG to make any payments to Gazprom. The Russian gas monopolist reported this in the prospectus for the issue of Eurobonds, Deutsche Welle reports.
The decision was taken as a provisional measure in response to the claim of Naftogaz-Ukraine company.
The document says that as a result of the court decision, all payments from these companies to Gazprom are directed to Swiss bailiffs.
Earlier, it was reported that Naftogaz Ukraine would send 90% of its income to Ukraine’s state budget, as the Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said at the session of the Cabinet of Ministers.
Naftogaz supervisory board decided to pay bonuses amounting $46,3 billion to the workers who 'worked hard in Stockholm Arbitration in dispute with Gazprom concerning the transit contract'.
Later, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Office opened a criminal proceeding on payment of bonuses to Naftogaz board.
