The state Executive office has collected with “Gazprom” 79,8 million UAH to the state budget in the framework of the fine imposed by the Antimonopoly Committee (AMCU) in the Russian company. This was announced by the Deputy Minister of justice in the Executive service Sergiy Shklyar, reports “New time”.

“The decision “Gazprom”, which was issued by AMC on 171 billion and that was then the subject of consideration by commercial courts received for execution. Until we have such results — 79,8 million UAH is already collected from the debtor and transferred to the state budget,” said Shkliar.

The Ministry reported that it carried out further enforcement actions in this direction.

We will remind, earlier about collecting with “Gazprom” UAH 80 million was announced by the Minister of justice of Ukraine Pavel Petrenko.

As you know, in February 2016, the AMC has decided to impose on the Russian Gazprom the penalty at 85.9 billion, or about 3.2 billion dollars for violation of legislation on protection of economic competition. “Gazprom” has passed all the courts, but the courts have left the complaint without consideration.

Subsequently, the AMC had over 100% interest on 85,9 billion fine in the amount of 85,96 billion. In December 2016, the Economic court of Kiev satisfied the claim of the AMC regarding the enforcement of fines and penalties from “Gazprom” in the amount of 172 billion.

On 21 April the Antimonopoly Committee instructed the State Executive service to collect 172 billion of fines and penalties from “Gazprom”.
