Poroshenko announced the "energy independence" of Ukraine

62
Another statement about energy independence from Russia was voiced today by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. He believes that thanks to the decision of the Stockholm arbitration, Ukraine "jumped off the gas hook" of "Gazprom" and starts 2018 the year energy-independent.


Thanks to the decision of the Stockholm arbitration, Ukraine jumped off the gas hook of Gazprom. We are confidently starting 2018 - the year of Ukraine’s energy independence
- he wrote on Friday on his Twitter page.

Poroshenko announced the "energy independence" of Ukraine


Gazprom and Naftogaz Ukrainy have been suing the Stockholm arbitration since June 2014. The subject of the lawsuits were contracts for the supply of gas from the Russian Federation to Ukraine and the transit of gas through the territory of Ukraine from 2009. In late December, the court made a final decision on the gas dispute.

The court ordered Naftogaz to pay Gazprom 2 a billion dollars for gas already supplied, and also reduced the annual contract volume of purchases to 5 billion cubic meters of gas, but left a take-or-pay condition for 80% of this volume, that is, on 4 billion cubic meters. According to Gazprom’s report, Kiev has been obliged to purchase gas in these volumes since 2018, reports RIA News

      Ukry and Gazprom pledged each other tens of billions of dollars at first. If anyone remembers. According to ukroinitiativ estessna, on the principle of "Well, we are right ... you owe us our life ..."

      Arbitration blew all the "foam" and it turned out who owed whom. Ukraine must pay Gazprom $ 2 billion. etc.
      Petyunya called it peer-moguy ... and is satisfied to this day ... does not dry out unequivocally.

      The Ukrainian state, in spite of its catastrophic situation, as forum users like to describe from Russia, has banned the export of round timber from Ukraine. A logical question arises for the Russians: "And how did your government forbid the removal of round timber from Russia or it is still exported by rail compounds? "

        First, compare the forest cover of Russia and Ukraine. This time. And secondly, the forest is still exported and the ban is most likely connected with the fact that it is practically gone. At least in 2006-2007 in the Carpathians, locals spoke of a large percentage of substandard condition.

    As usual, Petya drives ... This is normal.
    But what amuses me most of all is that the very essence of the court decision directly emphasizes the need to preserve gas transit through Ukraine. The question is: why? Personally, my opinion is that the Germans are all muddying. They want to extend the operability of this gas pipeline to the moment when gas will be taken to Europe proper at the Russian / Ukrainian border. After that - you can closely engage in the redemption of the pipeline in one form or another. If this gas string disappears now, then Ukraine becomes an uninteresting asset from the word ABSOLUTELY.
    I could be wrong, of course ...

    in Ukraine, the 2 billion debt balance is quite normal (although ideally they counted on 1 billion)
    and here is an excerpt

    The court completely rejected Gazprom’s claims for a $ 56 billion take-or-pay status for 2009-2017.
    Naftogaz has achieved a reduction in future mandatory annual volumes by more than 10 times - in accordance with its actual needs for gas imports.
    The court also lowered the price of Russian gas for Ukraine in the second quarter of 2014 by 27,4% to $ 352 per thousand cubic meters. As you know, Gazprom
    demanded to pay for gas delivered in the spring of 2014 at a price of $ 485 per thousand cubic meters. Naftogaz noted that due to the revision of the contract
    prices Ukraine saved $ 1,8 billion on gas purchased in 2014-2015.

    in general, 2 billion of debt and 5 billion cubic meters of all the requirements of Gazprom-recognized all the same is normal. Yes, and the formula was reviewed and it ceased to be political pressure.
    However, the court acted deliberately. Although politically did not satisfy Gazprom.

      I partially agree. In this case, the decision of the arbitration is more in the interests of Ukraine than in the interests of Gazprom (if we proceed from the requirements of Gazprom).
      However, the court decision "clears" the contract of political color. In this regard, Gazprom (read RF) is also a plus. Perhaps this was the main task, since collecting 56 billion from Ukraine is not a trivial task, frankly. But to “tie” Ukraine to the fulfillment of the contract and leave it on the “gas needle” - that was what was the main task. IMHO.

        The court decision, on the contrary, is purely political and custom-made in nature and shows that any contract signed by both parties now costs nothing and can be changed.

        For almost 15 years, Ukraine has shown that it is a very unreliable partner, cunning and vile. Gazprom not only needs to build SP2, but also SP3 and SP4 in order to remove excess links in the form of Ukraine and Poland from gas supplies to Europe.
