Ukrainian General Prosecutor's office challenged the decision of the court of Kiev on refusal in satisfaction of the prosecution of the claim on invalidation of the convicts in the Russian capital in 2009 of contracts of purchase and sale of natural gas, said the Ukrainian Ministry.
"the chief Prosecutor's office of Ukraine on July 31, has made the appeal complaint to the decision of economic court of Kiev dated 23 July, which denied the Prosecutor's claim in the interest of the country in the person of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine NJSC "Naftogaz of Ukraine" and OJSC "Gazprom" on invalidation of the convicts in the Russian capital in 2009 of contracts of sale and purchase of natural gas ", – notified on the Internet office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.
in connection with the actions of Prosecutor's office of the aforesaid judgment is not entered into legal force." the basis for the claim was a violation of the interests of the country in the implementation of public policy and governance of the hydrocarbon sector of the state economy, for example, conclusion, despite the requirements of articles 203, 655 of the civil code of Ukraine of fictitious contracts of purchase and sale without the desire of the parties to carry out the actual transfer of gas, but only to legitimize the actions of the NJSC "Naftogaz of Ukraine" on the design of the property owned by the organization ROSUKRENERGO AG (RUE), which is associated with Dmytro Firtash ", – reported in the report. Yesterday, the court of Kiev refused the Prosecutor's office of Ukraine in the invalidation of 2 contracts of purchase and sale of gas as of January 20, 2009 between NJSC "Naftogaz of Ukraine" and " Gazprom ". About it reported in a judgment of 21 July, which was announced on the first day of the week. Minister of energy Vladimir Demchyshyn told reporters that as long as he did not know anything about this court decision." I haven't read the decision of the court. So that I can say nothing, " replied the Minister, reports the news Agency. Recall, on January 20, 2009 in the Ukrainian underground gas storage was eleven billion cubic meters of gas belonging to RosUkrEnergo. To make the ownership of this volume, Naftogaz needed formal grounds. Gazprom as a shareholder of RosUkrEnergo ceded to Naftogaz, the right to claim from the Swiss trader, 1, 7 billion dollars of debt, or eleven billion cubic meters of gas in Ukrainian underground storage tank 153, 9 dollars per thousand cubic meters. Then Naftogaz and Gazprom signed two agreements: the Ukrainian Company sold eleven billion cubic meters of Russian gas monopolist and the same day I bought them back. Thus, the Ukrainian holding legalized these volumes, moving them from the "transit" mode to " import ". It is these contracts that challenged the Prosecutor General's office. After RosUkrEnergo lost their eleven billion cubic meters of Ukrainian gas storage facilities, a Swiss trader appealed to the Stockholm arbitration. In June 2010, the Tribunal ordered Naftogaz to return RosUkrEnergo eleven billion cubic meters and 1, 1 billion cubic meters in the form of penalties.
