Gazprom has suspended its litigation with Naftogaz Ukraine at the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce over alleged violation of contractual terms on transiting natural gas to Europe by Naftogaz.
"We have suspended these proceedings and are not continuing them now," Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said on Echo Moskvy radio on Thursday.
None of Gazprom's European clients have sued Gazprom for irregularities in gas shipments in January 2009, Kupriyanov said. "We declared this force majeure, and all our clients agreed with that," Kupriyanov said.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
