All assets of Russia's energy monopolist Gazprom, located in Ukraine, were moved to this country's state budget. Pavlo Petrenko, Ukraine's justice minister reported that at a Tuesday briefing in Kyiv, as quoted by Ukrinform news agency.
'I can say that the Justice Ministry will surcharge from Gazprom another six billion U.S. dollars, which is foreseen by the Ukrainian court's decision. The whole case was initiated by the Anti-Monopoly Committee. We already surcharged a part of the sum. Part of that sum has been already surcharged; we seized, arrested and transferred these funds into the state budget. That's almost four million dollars for the Ukrainian budget,' he said.
The official added that the Ministry will cooperate with counterparts to make Russia pay every penny of its debt before Russia.
