Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is no such thing as "Turkmen gas", it is an illusion created by Gazprom management to capture value in Ukraine at the expense of Naftogaz AND of Gazprom. Yushenko has disrupted that cozy arrangement, that's what this is about.

(Obviously, there is gas physically coming from  Turkmenistan, but it is bought dirt cheap as Turkmenistan has no other option - the Turkmenbashi doesn't care as he is part of this scam, obviously, and has few people he needs to share with)
