Gazprom Sends Ukraine $7 Billion Bill as Gas Dispute Deepens

OAO Gazprom sent Ukraine’s state-run energy company a $7 billion bill for failing to import agreed natural-gas volumes last year, in an echo of a conflict that twice disrupted shipments to European customers in recent years.

NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy notified Gazprom in advance that it would import less gas than contracted, the company’s press service said Jan. 26, confirming the receipt of the bill from the Moscow-based company.
