VILNIUS - Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom has sent a letter to the Lithuanian government demanding $140 million in payouts for a unprofitable power plant.

The gas company bought the power plant - which is located near the Lithuanian city of kaunas - in 2003 for 116 million litas.

A clause in the agreement stipulated that there would be a set margin on energy prices until 2018.
