MOSCOW (Reuters) - Ukrainian energy firm Naftogas said on Monday it may fail to pay Gazprom
In a statement, Naftogas said that its large customers owed it almost 27 billion hryvnias (£1.8 billion) as of February 3, which may result in the Ukrainian company failing to pay Gazprom's bills on time.
Quoting a Gazprom GAZP.MM official, the Vedomosti financial daily said on Monday Ukraine imported 2.4 billion cubic meters of Russian gas in January worth $650 million (£397.4 million). That took its gas bill to $3.35 billion including past arrears.
