Суд обязал Украину выплатить Российской Федерации номинальную стоимость облигаций в сумме 3 млрд. долл. США, в 2013 году приобретенных за счет средств ФНБ, сумму неосуществлённого купонного платежа в размере 75 млн. долл. США и штрафные проценты, начисляемые на эти суммы. Проценты на сумму основного долга по облигациям подлежат оплате по ставке 8% годовых, проценты на сумму невыплаченного купона – по ставке «3-месячный ЛИБОР в долларах США плюс 2 процента годовых». Выплаты штрафных процентов рассчитываются с 21 декабря 2015 г. и производятся по дату полного исполнения обязательств. Таким образом, каждый день просрочки будет стоить государственному бюджету Украины (украинским налогоплательщикам) более 673 тыс. долл. США.

Royal Dutch Shell Chief Executive Officer Ben van Beurden commented: “Shell’s strong results this quarter show that we are reshaping the company following the integration of BG. Cash generation has been resilient over four consecutive quarters, at an average oil price of just under $50 per barrel. This quarter, we generated robust earnings excluding identified items of $3.6 billion, while over the past 12 months cash flow from operations of $38 billion has covered our cash dividend and reduced gearing to 25%.
“Our solid financial results and strong cash flow are driven by good operational performance with high production efficiency and continued cost improvements. At oil prices around 50 dollars per barrel, we have generated 4 billion dollars in free cash flow, and reduced our net debt ratio by 8.1 percentage points since the start of the year. We expect to deliver around 5% production growth this year, and at the same time realise an additional one billion dollars in efficiencies,” says Eldar Sætre, President and CEO of Statoil ASA.
