As we reported earlier, Naftogaz Ukraine received $ 2,917 billion compensation from PJSC Gazprom for the execution of the 2018 Stockholm arbitration decision. Thus, based on the transit arbitration results, Naftogaz received $ 5 billion from Gazprom.
Today’s Gazprom payment includes the repayment of both the previously unpaid portion of the decided compensation ($ 2.56 billion) and the interest accrued from the date the decision was announced on February 28, 2018.
