The State Enforcement Service of Ukraine has collected UAH 79.8 million from Gazprom to the state budget of Ukraine. Deputy Justice Minister Serhii Shkliar announced this at a press conference in Kyiv on June 29, Ukrainian News Agency reports. The collection of the sum was in the frames of execution of a decision of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine to fine Gazprom for a sum exceeding UAH 170 billion. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on May 16, the Higher Economic Court rejected Gazprom's request to cancel the fine of UAH 172 billion that the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine imposed on the company. In May 2017, the State Enforcement Service opened proceedings on forcible collection of fine of UAH 172 billion (USD 6.5 billion) imposed by the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine on Gazprom for monopoly abuse in the market of natural gas transit through Ukraine and on arrest of Gazprom's property in Ukraine. On June 6, 2017, the Economic Court of Kyiv allowed the State Enforcement Service of Ukraine collecting UAH 79.877 million of dividends of Gaztransit, in which Gazprom owns 40.2% of shares, intended to pay to Gazprom, as Gazprom is obliged to pay a fine of UAH 172 billion that the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine imposed on Russia's gas monopoly. Gazprom owns 40.2% of the shares in the Ukrainian private joint-stock company Gaztransit, the Naftogaz of Ukraine national joint stock company owns 40.2%, and the Turusgas company (Turkey) owns 19.5652%.
