MOSCOW (Reuters) – The British High Court has suspended its case into a dispute between Russia’s Gazprom and Ukraine’s Naftogaz until an appeal process at a Swedish court is complete, Gazprom said in a statement on Thursday.

The Ukrainian state oil and gas firm said last year that a London court had granted its request to freeze the British assets of Gazprom to enforce an earlier arbitration ruling from Sweden.
