The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has appealed to the courts for the arrest of 500 million cubic meters of gas worth UAH 4.3 billion that belong to the Ostchem group of companies owned by Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk said at a government meeting on Wednesday.


According to Yatseniuk, the decision was made following an investigation by the Prosecutor General's Office on the collusion between representatives of the Ostchem Group and officials from state oil and gas company Naftogaz Ukrainy.

"We have asked the court to arrest 500 million cubic meters of gas, which are owned by the debtors, namely the Firtash-Liovochkin group, to the Ukrainian state, [and which are] worth UAH 4.3 billion," Yatseniuk said.
