Russia’s Novatek has published its financial results for the first two quarters of this year — the first time it has posted quarterly figures since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine early last year.

Novatek, Russia’s largest independent gas producer, last released results for the fourth quarter of 2021 and did not release any results in 2022, taking advantage of a government decision to allow companies not to do so if they believed such disclosures could lead to international sanctions being imposed on them because of the war in Ukraine.
