“From 1997 until March 18, 2014, Russia has written off 97.95 million rubles of Ukraine’s overall state debt every year. This sum should be written off completely by 2017,” Karasin said, adding that “the treaties concluded in the city of Kharkiv (eastern Ukraine) have extended the Black Sea Fleet agreement until 2042. We proceeded from this before tragic events.”
Karasin said that under the Kharkiv deals, Russia should have made a gas price discount of $100 per 1,000 cubic metres.
