Ukraine has spent $ 1 billion on the production and delivery of gas for uncontrollable Kiev territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, said the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk at the meeting of the National trilateral socio-economic Council.
"We spent $ 1 billion on the production and delivery of gas and electricity to the site of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and in return received a zero. There accounts are not paid, but the citizens do not cold, We were obliged to do, as There are citizens of Ukraine ", - quotes Yatsenyuk LIGA Businessinform ".
Yatsenyuk has noticed that the state budget does not receive a penny from the uncontrolled territories of Donbass. Yesterday the head of Ministry of energy of Russia Alexander Novak said that Gazprom continues to deliver gas from Russia to the site of the South-East of Ukraine in the volume of allegedly 10 million cubic meters per day. April 10, Minister of energy of Ukraine Volodymyr Demchyshyn said that Ukraine has put in the Donbass for the last 7 months and 1, 5 billion cubic meters of gas for a total of $ 9 billion hryvnia (384 million dollars), this delivery, according to his statement, is not paid. First of Demchyshyn said that uncontrolled Kiev regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions list Naftogaz only 20-25% of the payment for gas supplies. The head of the energy Ministry of Russia Alexander Novak said that in the Donbass already put about 400 million cubic meters of Russian gas deliveries continue. Russia February 19, began supplying gas to the South-East of Ukraine through gas metering station "Prokhorovka" and "Platovo" on the borders of Rostov, Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Kiev stopped gas supplies to the region, citing the damage to the pipelines at the end of hostilities. Payment for these supplies was another contentious issue in the gas negotiations between Russia and Ukraine. Gazprom announced that gas supplies to South-East of Ukraine in accordance with the contract with Naftogaz, respectively, and pay for them have Ukrainian state. Ukraine refuses to do, pointing to the inability to control both the fact of supply and their volumes.
