Gazprom billed Ukraine. Who will pay?

61
Today in the media there was information that Gazprom billed Ukraine for 11 billion dollars for 2013 a year. This amount includes both the cost of gas supplied, and the cost of undelivered.


I turned for comments to my friend who works in this glorious company, and this is how I received an explanation.

The fact is that any gas supply agreement for a certain period provides for payment of both received and unearned gas. And it is spelled out in any supply agreement, for any customer. Both foreign and domestic.

There is such a thing as a quota. Under this quota, the consumer undertook to consume, for example, 1 a million cubic meters of gas. And, accordingly, pay. If a client has gone over, then naturally, above all, he is obliged to pay. But if you don’t have ... then you also have to pay.

If the shortfall is less than 10% of the requested quota, then nothing else. And if more - the money on the barrel. Gas specifically for Ukraine was produced, poured into gas storages, pumping capacities, pipelines and so on were reserved.

Our Ukrainian consumers decided to play in independence and refuse to supply gas in favor of fantastic projects such as the virtual reverse of our own gas from Europe. Good. But the gas for them is already here, it has been produced, liquefied, and ready to be shipped. So if you please, gas independence also costs money. Allow me to pay.

By the way, this is another point. Ukraine does not pay for Russian gas. It is a fact. Having agreed with the reverse with the Slovaks, where is the guarantee that Bratislava will receive money for gas from Kiev?

11 billion - a huge amount. It is indisputable. But that is not all. The fact is that since the beginning of 2014, similar payments have run over another 7 billion. Non-payment, underconsumption, delinquency. In total - 18 (eighteen) billion US dollars.

It is unlikely that Mr. Yatsenyuk, who was in the team that signed the 2009 agreement, was not in the know. Very unlikely. And I think that he, like anyone else, is well aware that he will have to pay. But where to get so much? All the advances that were generously squandered by Western Allied friends add up to God bless, a third of that amount. And that Ukraine has not yet seen in real money.

Then begins a headache in Europe. The fact that Ukraine will not pay any hryvnia in the near future is clear to everyone. Especially those who have money. Germany, France. Well, the United States, who have no money, but they are still in the subject. Who will pay?

There is hardly anyone in the world willing to give Ukraine SO MUCH. Especially, given the fact that this money really does not get back for understandable circumstances.

And again, in perspective, Europe has the ghost of Miller with a wrench at the valve on the pipeline. And panic negotiations on a gas theme will begin again (winter is much closer than it seems) and the search for solutions to the problem.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian junta confidently leads its rusty and holey steamer to the pier with the inscription “Default. A place for sludge.

Honestly, gentlemen, would you stop sagging weapons and would do business. That is, they would go to hell and leave Ukraine’s politics and economy alone.

        Ukraine will not pay Russia anything, they will write off Crimea as a debt, they will name some kind of astronomical amount of the value of movable and immovable property such as half a trillion dollars and say - go through the forest, you owe us.
        And then either Europe will begin to put pressure on Russia and Ukraine will steal transit gas, as before, or Europe will simply buy more gas and supply them with a reverse price of 100 $ cheaper than we agreed to supply them ...
        True, there is one pitfall, the south stream is not ready yet, and the north and transit through Belarus do not have sufficient capacity.

        Well, if ours still block the gas, America and Europe will unambiguously impose sanctions against Russia, for us, together with gas shortages, these will be huge losses.

          As for the losses, I don’t know ... The flow can be reoriented to the east, China, as I heard, is ready to buy gas 50 years ahead. And then. But the Europeans themselves, as without gas? Mattresses will be ready to supply shale gas in a couple of years at best. But most likely, it will be more expensive and supply volumes less. There is nowhere to take more gas from. The Germans will not provide a reverse at a loss. It turns out in spite of mom’s frostbitten ears. A donut is clear, Europe does not want to pay for dill. It turns out she pays for the organization of the entire mess in Ukraine, including the extraction of Crimea. Any toad will strangle.

              Hello Sergey. Sorry to interfere. But the "gas wars" come to mind. Deputy Miller meant that the valve would be closed to Ukraine (as promised by the GDP on May 17, i.e. 1 month from the date of the announcement); and European volumes will go. But behind the "square" there is one sin - to open the valve in your direction, tyrit in one word. Then Miller and the whole stream will block and begin ... angry
              I think Ukraine will not pay anything - it will demand to write off for the Crimea and lost property, etc. etc. ... Ukraine should have closed the valve a long time ago ... there is no one to answer. Since Putin himself said that they were "illegitimate." hi

                  Sergey, about partners and not legitimate ones, also smiled at me. laughing .
                  Surprisingly, the GDP still does not exert any economic pressure against the interim government. To block, for example, the supply of food from Ukraine (it seems that they will have a hard time with the Horcians, so they won’t be bothered to save wassat)). As for gas, it seems to me that Putin (the gas chief) did not make it clear: "In a month. How much money they give, they get that much." And this only means one thing - the overlap for the number that went for the "Square". Money "no ma" and in the near future no one will pay off exactly that much to pay off. And the junta will sit on gratis until "the last". After the overlap, they will start screaming like stabbed. And for Europe, as it went on, it will go on. Then theft will begin, then ... I say that all the gas wars remind me of these. To be honest, Gazprom would look at its country. We also have enough Potemkin villages. Although we must pay tribute - the work is underway (within 2 years to provide gas to the Alma-Ata region - or rather to bring main pipes throughout the region. The guys on the site from Chimkent say that they have begun to supply gas in the region).
                  Sergey, I have a question for you, if not difficult. There Shoigu for the Army Aviation Brigade says. Is it like a "hodgepodge" in the form of helicopters, attack aircraft, "light" fighters and front-line bombers under the command of "land"? In principle, during the hostilities, they always cooked up a similar "hodgepodge" (of course, from the assigned tasks) or am I mistaken? Yours faithfully !

      If the Europian would not stink in the "keel" of the United States, then the gas issue would have been resolved long ago.
      They are a little foul. Yes, Nord Streem does not want to load at 100%, they say they do not allow an energy package!
      They fuck themselves. yes
      But taking into account the fact that weakly sane banderlogs have settled in Kiev, the geyropeytsy, apparently, will have to load Nord Streem and Yamal-Europe to the full.
      In summer this will close the needs even without Ukraine, although gas pipelines might not reach some countries of Southern Europe ...
      But, most likely, the gas transportation system of Ukraine will be taken under European control, deliveries to the independent ones will stop, terrible savings in the gas sector will begin ...

    Neither Europe nor the United States will pay for Ukraine. The United States said that the money will be transferred to controlled banks in repayment of debts. Europe is also wrinkling. Because they understand that Russia will take all the money. And it’s such a zapadlo for them, it’s better to bite your own tail.
    Option-they will pull until the winter, and then blame Russia that it wants to freeze the people of the whole country.
    Or they will force Slovakia to include reverse and, of course, for free. There is no money, and if the debt of Russia appears again first.

    I tried all week to watch the news of only Ukrainian channels, and you know everything there is presented in such a "good" light that it’s ridiculous. We are worried about Ukraine, that they have a civil war and debts for gas, and in general they will soon default. And as Ukrainian news shows, everything is just fine with them, they have debts for gas, but these are debts of the previous authorities, the new authorities have no debts at all. Ukraine, of course, needs gas, but they can get it from any "friendly" country (except Russia, of course), and that if Ukraine refuses Russian gas, Russia will default, because it will have to pay for gas transit. So soon Ukraine will receive $ 2-3 billion from Russia for gas transit and soon there will be nowhere to put the money. There is no civil war at all, there are separatists in the Southeast, but soon the whole world will be against Russia, because NATO troops have already deployed in the vicinity, and the troops of "Gondor" have come to them, so Russia will be defeated. In 2 months Ukraine has become the most prosperous country in Europe and the most democratic. And the Crimea will later ask back and Russia will ask for help from Ukraine. Such a veil over the eyes is given by the Ukrainian channels, the most interesting epiphany will come sooner or later and will be like in the movie "Congress", everyone around is in rags and in poverty. It is a pity that the people of Ukraine will have to go through and endure all this, especially the pensioners.

    It’s good to live and there’s nothing not to pay for, just some kind of “bugs”. There have always been disputes over who is feeding Ukraine to Russia or vice versa.

    There is a big game and Ukraine I am in this game is six. No matter how offensive it is for ordinary Ukrainians.
    The trump card of this six is ​​that a significant part of the gas pipelines from Russia to Europe passes through it. And that is why the United States is so active here. They play their game, the goal of which is to weaken both Russia and the EEC at the same time. We understand this, does the EEC fully understand this?
    Nobody will completely shut off gas to Ukraine now, but it’s probably worth covering up slightly so that Europeans begin to recover. You look, maybe the South Stream project will cease to torpedo.
    In addition, we should not forget about the reorientation of gas supplies to the East in China, Korea and other countries. Well, most importantly, it would be time to ourselves already move away from the raw material orientation of the economy, direct efforts towards the development of our own production with high added value.
    And Ukrainians, as they do not mind on the one hand, let them have some more fun, and a bitter hangover is already standing at their doorstep.

    Who the last to leave the structure of Ukraine - that and debts. Already an accordion, but does not lose its relevance :)

    It’s time to worry already, as if you didn’t have to get a BIG PENDAL on this suction cup ...

    The question is not so simple, Ukraine is becoming impudent, realizing that Europe cannot survive without Russian gas. Well, in this case, you can always stick to the pipe, and then burn it with a blue flame.

    Yes, they will not pay, there’s nothing, they will continue the theft and will call it a reverse.

    Take bagels, drive rubles. For pleasure you have to pay. There are conditions for a signed contract, if you please comply. No money, no gas.

    And the author did not ask his friend: WHAT will become a real debtor to the state.
    And HOW to really get your debts?

    Yes, in general, cut off their gas, let Europe pay for them once they like them so much. Although I think Europe will immediately turn on the rear and merge Ukraine ....

    How much can you spare them, cut off the gas and all! This money, which they don’t pay, is better for us, old people, children, to use the same roads! We are being disturbed in Ukraine by Mr. Nom, and we are all talking with them!

    Not long to wait. In May, Mr. Miller will issue a prepayment invoice and screw on the tap. At the same time, the well-known phrase comes to mind: "And when chairs, and chairs in the evening, but money in advance."

    Yes, no one is going to pay!
    By the way, many in the EU are surprised at the longevity of Gazprom _ He is not paid, but gas is coming ?!

    we don’t know much yet. Indeed, one of the versions of the Maidan is not at all the entry into the EU or the torpedoing of the Moscow agreements (although this too) but a redistribution of the energy market. Maybe they just want to torpedo Gazprom at once (gas loss arbitrage - courts and other red tape) - causing significant harm to the economy.
    Or maybe they were really afraid of the Moscow agreements, expanding the CU zone to the detriment of the EU.
    In short, the neutral status of Ukraine suddenly ceased to suit.
    They say you are not Switzerland --- if you please ...
    Kiev generally says what it should (as ordered), and the one who wrote the play, far-reaching plans without any losses (except for small financial)
    The EU is trying, but there is no strength. What are the arguments of the Russian Federation?
    Of course, Ukraine was included in the zone of influence of the Russian Federation - and the loss of a huge buffer ahead, this is not good. And given the buffer infestation by hostile ideas ... it's all so fun.

    During a search in the apartments of the former Minister of Energy of Ukraine, Mr. Stavitsky, 42 kg of gold and almost five million dollars in cash were discovered. In the place of Gazprom, I would take it as a result of debt for gas !!

    No need to block anyone. The EU knows how to count its blood and taking into account that it is sausage from internal problems, then in extreme cases the NATO forces, which the ancient Ukrainians call so, to overthrow the self-proclaimed rulers who supported the fascist and non-democratic junta etc. They will squeeze out the gas industry and try to somehow settle financial issues. Everything is complicated, in short. We fortune-telling on coffee grounds.

    Ukraine counts on reverse supplies? Fine.
    This morning "Vesti" was informed about the refusal of Slovakia to play these games. And obviously not without German prompting they refuse.
    But even if there are reverse gas supplies to Ukraine, this gas must be obtained somewhere else, i.e. pay. And it doesn't matter who pays, it matters to whom. Again, the gas re-exporter country will inevitably increase the volume of purchases, and this is the reason and the reason for revising the contract. A very elegant move would be the introduction of the concept of "quota" into the agreement and the requirement to pay for everything in excess - in Russian rubles.
    Unfortunately, this is possible only on the condition that patriots of Russia work in Gazprom ...

      Payment system dollar!
      Until we create our ruble ...
      That is why they could agree with the Chinese? They have it and we just got involved in it!
      And the EU has a dollar!
