Ukraine was supplying a bit of France and other bits of Europe. I'm not at all surprised Russsia is playing Superpower. They miss the old days.

List of countries effected:

Serbia
Italy
Austria
Slovakia
Bulgaria
Turkey
Macedonia
Greece
Croatia
Germany

All because Ukraine doesn't want to pay the bill for Russian gas at raised prices, which incidentally, is way less than we pay for the same gas even when you include the rise.

Well, it's not exactly the same Gas is it. We don't get ours from Russia - yet. But I take your point though Ukraine is bound to act the upstart.

2007 saw us import 16% of our gas from Russia. And that can only have gone up last year.

Russian Gas Etc

I genuinely doubt that the Government(EDIT)Deparment knows much about a privatised business sector. Much less one that was formed three months ago.

But then again, I quoted Daily Mail, so there's your two extremes.
