Putin Threatens EU Gas Squeeze Raising Stakes for Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin flew into Milan last night for peace talks with European Union leaders after threatening to cut the supply of natural gas through Ukraine if the government in Kiev diverts fuel for domestic use.

After missing an earlier meeting time because he stayed on at a military parade inSerbia, Putin met German Chancellor Angela Merkel shortly before midnight as they prepared for formal talks on Ukraine scheduled for 8 a.m. today. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko also met Merkel as well as Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and EU President Herman van Rompuy.

Clan of KGB spies? Perhaps you should cite your socerus, before writing such libel. I am sure that Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev and most of the Russian Duma would be surprised to learn that they are KGB spies Sorry to see that turd known as La Russophobe has landed here Tim. Good luck putting up with that Of course she put too much blame directly on Putin as well as inserted herself into the story far too much. One of the first rules of journalism is to take yourself out of the news story, a rule she seldom followed. She was not a saint, but she was an excellent writer in my opinion. The issue of her virtue or skill or accumen isn\'t really important in any case the issue is one of crime that has no fear of reprisal within Russia. Much of Russia\'s problems are societal and not the result of some vast conspiracy. As I\'ve pointed out elsewhere, the fact that she was murdered on Putin\'s birthday is telling and troubling as to the assassin\'s intentions and message.

the government was RUN by spies. That means the peploe who have POWER and make the DECISIONS are spies. It\'s quite interesting that you name the ones who are not spies but don\'t name the ones who are. Well, interesting is not the word. Hideously dishonest is what is called for. Or, pathetic attempt at Neo-Soviet propaganda. I\'d say nice try, but it wasn\'t even close.Being called turd by a person who called Anna Politkkovskaya a liar who wrote gross distortions is a great compliment. So thanks! And thanks for proving how a non-turd should conduct himself, by using words like turd, as well as for highlighting the extent of your breeding, education and intelligence.PS: Your jealousy is really working overtime, isn\'t it? It\'s not my fault that my counter passed you by after only six months. Well, it is, but you can\'t fairly blame me for it.

Thanks for the ideas you have provided here. Moreover, I bveelie usually there are some factors that really keep your insurance premium decrease. One is, to think about buying vehicles that are inside the good list of car insurance corporations. Cars which have been expensive are usually more at risk of being snatched. Aside from that insurance policies are also depending on the value of your car, so the more pricey it is, then the higher a premium you only pay. [url=]pumrarc[/url] [link=]aiymziymkp[/link]
