Russia's energy monopolist Gazprom refused to abide by the decision of Stockholm arbitrary court. Naftogaz-Ukraine company reported this after the last week's meeting with Gazprom's representative.

'Gazprom made it extremely clear that it's not going to resume gas supplies to Ukraine, which the court ruled earlier, in December 2017. Gazprom also refused to pay 2.6 billion U.S. dollars, which was also foreseen by the court's decision in February, in the transit contract case', the press service of the Ukrainian company reported.  

Gazprom's delegation offered the Ukrainian side to either submit amendments to the gas deal or to break it. Naftogaz considers such actions a violation and disrespect for the decision made by Stockholm arbitrary court. Naftogaz refuses to accept Gazprom's offers. The Russian company's denial to obey the decision of the international arbitrary questions Gazprom's reliability as European gas industry's partner', the message said, quoting Naftogaz's Chief Commercial Officer Yuriy Vitrenko.   

The sides agreed to hold the next round of negotiations in April.
