On Tuesday, Gazprom categorically rejected Naftogaz’s claims in the international arbitration initiated by that case regarding gas transit to Europe, pointing out that services not provided by the Ukrainian side should not be paid. He also said that he considers the position of Naftogaz unfriendly and that its preservation could become the basis for the imposition of sanctions by the Russian authorities against the Ukrainian company, which would mean a ban on Gazprom from fulfilling obligations to it, including payment.

Since May 11, Ukraine has stopped receiving gas for transit through the Sokhranovka gas measuring station (GIS), citing the fact that it is under the control of Russian forces (on the territory of the LPR). As a result, there was only one entrance left for gas transit to Europe – GIS “Sudzha”. Gazprom stated that transferring all volumes to Sudzha is technologically impossible, the company fulfills all obligations to European consumers, and transit services are fully paid.
