KIEV, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Ukraine’s state energy firm Naftogaz on Wednesday said a Swedish court had rejected an appeal by Russia’s Gazprom against a decision in one of several long-running legal disputes over gas contracts.
Naftogaz had secured a favourable decision in December 2017 on its demands that the price of Russian gas to Ukrainian consumers be reduced and the take-or-pay requirement be cancelled.
Wednesday’s decision comes as the two companies are also negotiating gas supply talks to replace an existing deal that expires at the end of 2019.
