Ukraine, within the framework of package agreements, will withdraw all gas claims against Russia; this decision does not apply only to the Stockholm arbitration. Minister of Energy Oleksiy Orzhel announced it on a briefing in the President’s Office
“We will resolve the issue of future arbitrations. This is a potential win, but we already have a vision of what transit arrangements are, so in this case a package solution involves a review of positions regarding future arbitrations. That is, a decision on 3 billion is clearly defined, decisions on others will be recalled directly within the package," - he said.
As we reported, Ukraine and Russia agreed on a five-year gas transit contract with the possibility of extension to 10 years.
