Gazprom Receives $15m in Ukraine Prepayment

Russian gas export monopoly Gazprom said on Friday it had received another $15 million prepayment from Ukraine for gas deliveries, Gazprom's spokesman was quoted by Reuters as saying.
This indicates that Ukraine has prepaid for gas until mid-month. Gazprom's spokesman said that Ukraine made the payment for 63.3 million cubic meters, excluding deliveries to rebel-held territories in east of the country.
Gazprom said it had also received $15 million from Ukrainian state energy firm Naftogaz
Gazprom Neft, the oil arm of gas producer Gazprom, has asked the government for 198 billion roubles ($3.3 billion) in financial aid, the daily Kommersant reported on Friday.
Ever since Moscow was hit by sanctions over the Ukraine crisis, Russian companies have struggled to raise financing because Western markets are largely closed to them.
Rosneft, Russia's largest oil producer, initially asked the government for more than 1 trillion roubles, but the figure was later revised down to 300 billion.
The company had reportedly handed a letter to Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich listing projects for which it needs financing, but it has not yet filed an official request.
