Russia turns the gas taps back on

The deep freeze between Russia and Ukraine thaws


 

The deep freeze between Russia and Ukraine thawed a bit today, after Russia resumed gas supplies to Ukraine – and from there to much of Europe. Russia had blocked gas flow on January 7 because of a dispute over pricing. The move left millions of Europeans without heat. Russia and Ukraine have frequently rowed over energy supplies since the “Orange Revolution” swept the pro-Russian Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych from power in 2005.
