After Uniper, the energy group RWE is now also pursuing arbitration proceedings against the Russian state-owned company Gazprom because of the lack of gas deliveries. RWE has taken the necessary legal steps, a spokesman said on Monday in Essen. He did not give details. The "Handelsblatt" had previously reported on it.
The energy company Uniper announced last week that it had applied for arbitration proceedings against Gazprom Export before an international arbitral tribunal. In an initial reaction, Gazprom rejected Uniper's claims for damages as "unlawful". The background to this is Gazprom's cutback and eventual suspension of Russian gas supplies to Germany last summer.
