It should be noted that this decision was made within the framework of interim measures at the request of Naftogaz. The Russian company said every attempt to arrest the shares of Nord Stream AG and Nord Stream 2 AG has not been successful so far.
On November 6, Fitch analysts rated the Ukrainian companies and Naftogaz said that the Stockholm Arbitration Court had little chance of getting 2.6 billion dollars from Gazprom in February.
The dispute between Naftogaz and Gazprom lasted for many years. The two companies filed a mutual claim on the Stockholm Arbitration for failure to supply gas under a contract of carriage and rejection of the purchase in violation of the terms of the contract. In February of this year, the court partially approved the demands of both parties. As a result, Gazprom owes $ 2.56 billion to Naftogaz. The company has already filed a protest against this decision.
