MOSCOW, April 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the situation in Russia-Ukraine energy cooperation is “complicated, if not to say critical”.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Wednesday at a meeting with Putin that Ukraine’s overall debt to Russia stands at $16.6 billion.
“$3 billion is Ukraine’s debt, the accumulated gas debt stands at $2.2 billion, and what we consider Russia's profit shortfall, at $11.4 billion, in total, $16.6 billion,” Medvedev said.
Ukraine’s debt for gas supplies from Russia as of early April stands at $2.238 billion, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak added.
