MOSCOW, Jan 20 (Reuters) - The freezing of some of Gazprom’s foreign assets at the request of Ukraine’s state-owned Naftogaz has been lifted, the Russian gas giant said on Monday.
The assets affected were in England, Wales, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, Gazprom said.
Gazprom last month said it had paid Ukraine $2.9 billion to settle a legal dispute as part of a wider gas package deal. In exchange, Ukraine was expected to sign a legal settlement and withdraw all outstanding claims. (Reporting by Anton Kolodyazhnyy Writing by Gabrielle Tétrault-Farber Editing by David Goodman)
