in mid-December 2013 Russia gave Ukraine a new year gift: Kiev after many years of fruitless bargaining finally received a 30% discount on gas, plus fifteen billion dollars from the Russian NWF.
4 March 2014, the head of Board " Gazprom " Alexey Miller at the meeting with the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev said that Gazprom from April 2014 cancels discount on manufacturing and delivery of gas to Ukraine. This decision was explained by the fact that the Ukrainian party does not fulfil achieved in the early winter of consensus, which included not only the decrease in the price of " Gazprom ", But repayment of debt " Naftogaz ".
Alexey Miller: " in fact It means that Ukraine ceased to pay for gas. This completely contradicts the provisions of the contract and international trade practices. We own hand has always fulfilled and will fulfill our contractual obligations. But We cannot supply gas for free. Or Ukraine extinguishes the debt and pay for current supplies, Or there is a risk to return to the situation at the beginning of 2009. On the situation will inform the government of the Russian Federation ".
