Ukraine expected to pay about $ 440 mln for Russian gas it consumed in February
Ukraine is expected to pay about $ 440 million for the Russian natural gas it consumed in February, the interim acting Minister of Energy and Coalmining, Yuri Prodan told reporters Sunday.
"It'll come to around $ 440 million for February," he said, adding that about $ 10.6 mln was remitted to Russia's main producer and exporter of natural gas, OAO Gazprom, last year.
Ukraine's outstanding debt to Gazprom for last year totals $ 1.5 billion.
The country's national oil and gas monopoly Naftogaz Ukrainy issued a statement three days ago where it said it had paid Gazprom for the gas imported in January.
