New cold war in Europe as Russia turns off gas supplies - Europe, World - The Independent
It is almost inconceivable that for the Gas that Ukraine is supposed (By Russia) to have siphoned off for it's own (Ukraine) use would be greater than the amount which is supplied to France, Italy, Austria in addition to the supplies to all the other Country's Russia (Gazprom) is supposed to be supplying.
So one might suppose that Russia is attempting to get it's customers to exert pressure on Ukraine to get Ukraine to settle with Russia.
I sincerely hope that those country's supplied under contract to Gazprom take this matter to the International Court.
Russia must realize it cannot be allowed to destabilize it's customers.
