Gas crisis hits fightin’ words in Ukraine

Now claimed to be at “230 or else” levels, Russia has also denied Ukraine any rents on pipeline use, and issued bald threats on the “Ukrainian Counterpunch” earlier discussed.

UPDATE: Over at a Step at a Time, new data clinches the idea that this is a Gazprom/Kremlin attempt to put a powerlock on Ukraine: Gazprom has bought off Turkmenistan’s surplus gas, leaving Ukraine with no other potential supplier.

Our press and politicians need to start screaming bloody murder about this… of course, that would take reporting and statesmanship. Whose job is that lately?
