KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine said on Tuesday Russia's Gazprom owed it 2.2 billion cubic metres of natural gas worth around $1 billion following Moscow's annexation of the Black Sea region of Crimea.
Russia annexed the mainly Russian-speaking Crimea peninsula in March after mass street protests toppled Ukraine's Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovich.
"We want to hear a response from Russia ... on the question of returning to Ukraine 2.2 billion cubic metres of gas which Russia stole through Chernomornaftogas on the territory of (Crimea)," Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk told a televised session of his cabinet.
