This is evidenced by the latest quarterly statement issued by Gazprom, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.
Earlier, the decision of the arbitrators in the case on the delivery contract revision was expected in late June 2016. However, it is now expected in late 2016 - early 2017. At present, the claim of Gazprom in this action amounts to $31.75 billion.
Gazprom estimated net debt for gas supplies during the period of 2013 to 2016 at $2.856 billion (excluding surcharge and penalties). Previous reports by Gazprom mentioned the debt of $2.2 billion for gas delivery in 2013 and 2014.
Thus, Gazprom added debt for direct gas deliveries to the occupied Donbas with the one for gas supplies to Naftohaz for the first time. The oral proceedings have been postponed from February and March to September and October 2016.
The deadline for the decision in the litigation over the transit contract remains the same (late January 2017), but the hearing has been postponed from September to late November - early December 2016.
