Thumbs down Russia's Gazprom Shuts Off Natural Gas Supplies to Ukraine

Russia's OAO Gazprom cut off natural gas supplies to Ukraine after the country refused to pay more than four times 2005's rate for the fuel, deepening tensions between the two former Soviet republics.

State-run Gazprom, which supplies a quarter of Ukraine's gas and uses the country's pipelines to supply a quarter of western Europe's, began to shut off supplies to Ukraine at 10 a.m. local time today, Sergei Kupriyanov, a spokesman for the Moscow-based company, said on its NTV television network. ``The Ukrainian side is to blame for this. They rejected our offer.''

Ukraine has enough fuel stored to last four months, and both sides have said supplies to western Europe won't be affected.

Gazprom wants Ukraine to pay $230 per thousand cubic meters of gas, almost fivefold what it paid last year. Russian President Vladimir Putin, who campaigned against Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko a year ago in Ukraine's so called Orange Revolution, offered last night to delay the increase by three months if a contract was signed by midnight. Yushchenko refused, calling it ``economic pressure.''

``Putin hates Yushchenko and wants to break him down,'' said Sergei Markov, a political consultant who the Kremlin sent to Kiev in 2004 to help former Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych in his unsuccessful campaign against Yushchenko.

A price increase to $230 per thousand cubic meters would have opposite effects on Ukraine and Gazprom. Ukraine's economic growth in 2006, forecast at between 5.5 percent and 7.5 percent, would at least halve, Anatoliy Kinakh, head of the country's Security Council, said last week. Gazprom's 2006 sales would swelled by $4.5 billion, Troika Dialog, a Moscow-based brokerage, said.

Belarus is paying $ 24 per thousand cubic meters just because in Belarus there's communist president who is licking Russians asses.

Russian and their politics really sucks. Maybe they think that USRR times will came back Last year Ukraine became democratic country and i hope EU will help them.

This is a rediculous offer by the Russian government.

Hopefully the EU can offer some help.

Ukraine can have gas only from Russia because there isn't other way to transport gas to Ukraine

It's OK.. There are market prices for gaz and demand to Ukraine to pay those market prices is only fair.. It should have been done long before..

Belarus example is not relevant. And it's , generally, nobody's business what Belarus pays for that. Germany pays more than $200. Germany and Ukraine both pay the same market price for oil. So will it be the same for gaz.

One big bullshits !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Because Turkey, Georgia, Hungary and few more former soviet republic are paying less then 200.

Belarus is golden example of shit that Russia is making against Ukraine. If it's ok for you should go to doctor.

Unfortunately for Russia- they are not the only gas supplier in the world, and they will only lose some money. And what I should say: I really like russian people from wtaworld, but I hate your president- he is quite a freak! (But if you blame our president here- it won't matter- I also don't like him).

Belarus has a President (Lukashenko) who's an open Hitler fan! BTW, the Ukranians are already siphoning gas out of the pipeline to Western Europe, which crosses their territory. (Putin should have kept the price the same, but gotten Vika as compensation. She's an ethnic Russian anyway).

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
