UPDATE: Court arrests Gazprom Dutch assets to pay $2.6 bln to Naftogaz

(Adds comments by Gazprom in last two paragraphs)

KIEV/MOSCOW, Jun 5 (PRIME) -- A Dutch court has arrested local assets of Russian gas giant Gazprom to pay U.S. $2.6 billion to Naftogaz Ukrainy under a Stockholm court ruling, the Ukrainian company said in a statement Tuesday.

Last week, Naftogaz Ukrainy filed a motion to arrest Gazproms stakes in its Dutch subsidiaries and debts of Gazproms subsidiaries. The application was filed to secure the rights to receive $2.6 billion from the Russian monopoly under the Stockholm arbitration court decision taken in February 2018, Naftogaz Ukrainy said.

The Dutch court granted these motions, but six out of seven subsidiaries of Gazprom in the Netherlands refused to cooperate with court officials. But this will not affect the arrest.

Court executors are also taking actions to freeze Gazproms stakes in Nord Stream AG and Nord Stream 2 AG, Naftogaz Ukrainy said.

Gazprom said it is aware of Naftogaz Ukrainys actions in the Netherlands, but has not received any official notifications so far.

Gazprom will be able to provide detailed comments on this issue only after a thorough examination of documents if they officially arrive to our address. As of today, Gazprom has not received any official notifications regarding this procedure. Gazprom will defend its rights in accordance with the applicable law, it said.
