- Gazprom (OGZPY) raises gas prices for Ukraine by 44% after a discount deal expired, stepping up financial pressure on the country's government in its crisis in relations with Russia.
- Gazprom says the increase complies with its supply contract and is necessary because Ukraine owes more than $1.7B for gas bought since early 2013.
- The move raises fears that state-run Gazprom may threaten to cut supplies to Ukraine, which buys about half its gas from Russia, something that’s happened at least twice since 2006 because of payment disputes.
