Frente a las deudas impagas por 1550 millones de dólares, el coloso ruso Gazprom decidió cancelar, a partir del mes de abril, el descuento del 33% sobre el precio del gas que beneficiaba a la compañía estatal ucraniana Naftogaz. 

Ante la comunicación de la empresa estatal ucraniana Naftogaz, la cual acaba de informar a Gazprom de la imposibilidad de hacer frente al pago de los suministros de gas del mes de febrero, el titular de Gazprom Alexei Miller informó que congelará a partir del mes próximo el descuento del 33% sobre el precio del fluido, acordado en diciembre pasado bajo los auspicios de Vladimir Putin y del destituido mandatario ucraniano Viktor Yanukovich. Por medio de ese instrumento, la estatal rusa Gazprom había reducido el precio del gas que su contraparte ucraniana debía pagar, de 400 a 268,5 dólares por cada 1000 metros cúbicos.


  1. No more expensive than nulecar power, Unter, and with far less catastrophic potential. The technological gains in wind and solar power in the past decade are amazing. Denmark gets 25-40% of its domestic electricity from wind turbines, and the British government plans on achieving the same goal within the next decade.Solar farms are being proposed far and wide. California has several initiatives in the works. The Arab countries are also investing heavily in solar power.As for Germany, it has made deep investments into alternative energy. I think it sees natural gas as a stop gap until it can achieve its long range goals.France is really the anomaly in Europe, having invested heavily in nulecar energy and with a major stake in this industry, which is why it has been slow to move toward wind and solar.The EU is pushing toward wind and solar by offering tax credits and special funding, including in Eastern Europe, where Lithuania used an EU grant to start a solar chip factory, and is finally investing more in wind power, as Latvia has done in recent years to ease its energy dependence on Russia.

  3. I read that it was a political dieiscon of a previous Croat government. Current government laments it loudly – mostly for internal political reasons, to remind voters that opponents played against the economic interests.
