Gazprom Stuck With Record Tax Bill on Unpaid Ukraine Gas

OAO Gazprom, Russia’s biggest company, was stuck with record export duty payments in May as Ukraine imported more gas without paying for it.

Gazprom paid 61.9 billion rubles ($1.8 billion) on all its exports, data on the Treasury’s website show, almost 60 percent more than the same month in 2013. Most of the surplus stemmed from deliveries to NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy, a government official said, asking not to be identified because the information isn’t public.
