In Britain, the decision to arrest Gazrom's assets on the suit of Ukrainian Naftogaz was canceled, and in Sweden it's the other way around: the seizure of assets is again allowed.
Moscow, under Washington's pressure, is prepared to retain only a small part of its gas transit through Ukraine.
The Ukrainian company is again looking for money in Stockholm arbitration.
The Ukrainian company in pursuit of 2.65 billion dollars from Gazprom barely has time to resume the arrest of shares of Nord Stream AG and Nord Stream 2 AG.
The court upheld the ban on the execution of the decision of the Stockholm Arbitration to recover from the Russian "Gazprom" 2.65 billion dollars in favor of the Ukrainian company.
The assets of the Russian company in the UK are frozen to ensure the decision of the Stockholm Arbitration on the payment of "Naftogaz" 2.6 billion dollars.
The Svea County Court of Appeal (Sweden) suspended execution of the Stockholm arbitration award, according to which the Russian corporation was to pay Naftogaz 2.65 billion dollars.
After reports of the arrest of Gazprom's property in the Netherlands under the lawsuit of Naftogaz, the Russian company filed a lawsuit.
Energy Minister Alexander Novak did not rule out measures of state support for the gas corporation, whose assets under the lawsuit of Naftogaz were arrested in the Netherlands and Switzerland. The Ukrainian company Gazprom is obliged to return 2,65 billion dollars.
Following Switzerland, the Netherlands seized the assets of Gazprom in accordance with the decision of the Stockholm Arbitration, which obliges the Russian concern to pay Naftogaz $ 2.6 billion. However, neither the supply of gas to Europe from Russia, nor the construction of the "Nord Stream-2" is not yet threatened.
The court arrested the Dutch assets of Gazprom for paying Naftogaz 2.6 billion dollars on the decision of the Stockholm Arbitration, the Ukrainian company said.
Naftogaz demanded from the Russian gas corporation to undertake the obligation to pump 110 billion cubic meters of gas annually through Ukraine in 2020-2028 and agree to pay 30% more for the rate for pumping in 2018-2019. Otherwise, Kiev threatens Moscow with a $ 11 billion claim.
Kiev plans in this way to dislodge from the "Gazprom" argued in the Stockholm Arbitration 2,6 billion dollars.
The Russian gas corporation demanded to reconsider the verdict of the Stockholm arbitration on the basis of a linguistic examination. According to Gazprom, the verdict of arbitration about the dispute with the Ukrainian Naftogaz was not written by the arbitrator.
Gazprom sent documents to the Stockholm Arbitration Court for the termination of contracts with Naftogaz for the supply and transit of gas through Ukraine.
The company appealed against the decision of Stockholm Arbitration under the contract for the supply of gas to Ukraine in the court of Sweden.
Ukraine recovered from Gazprom about $ 3.8 million in the antimonopoly fine for 6.6 billion dollars. According to the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice, this is all that actually was at Gazprom in the territory of Ukraine.
After losing the process in Stockholm, the Russian concern announced the beginning of the termination of contracts with Naftogaz for the supply and transit of gas. This process will take at least a year, but the European Commission has already called on the parties to resolve the conflict.
Such a decision was eventually adopted by the International Arbitration Court in Stockholm.
To protect its interests, the Ukrainian oil and gas holding turned to a legal company that represented the interests of former Yukos shareholders in a dispute with Russia for $50 billion.
However, Gazprom can still get about $1 billion.
Europe will end up face-to-face with Gazprom, if it didn't invest in the Ukrainian gas transportation system, warned the head of Naftogaz.
The company demands $2.6 billion from Russia for the nationalized assets in the Crimea.
The gas giant could save tens of billions of dollars.
