` Ukraine Transfers Part-Payment of its Gas Debt to Russia '

#AceBreakingNews – MINSK – May 30 – Ukraine said it had transferred the payment for part of its gas debt to Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.

“Talks are under-way (in Berlin), so far there is no visible progress, but our Ukrainian partners said they had transferred a part of the sum (Ukraine owes Russia for gas supplies),” Medvedev said.

“However, liabilities are considered discharged not at the moment of money transfer but at the moment of its passing to the account of the creditor, that is to the Gazprom account.”
