It is reported by RIA Novosti. "We refused to pay those fines, and now we are in negotiations," said the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych during a TV project "The dialogue with the country." In January, Gazprom set a bill of $ 7 billion to Naftogaz in for the unconsumed gas in 2012 under the conditions of the "take or pay" contract from 2009. Naftogaz stated that it had paid for all the gas actually delivered in 2012, and does not consider the Gazprom's demands just. Gazprom and Ukraine have twice held the talks, but reports on the results of the invoice issue were not raised.
