Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

That pipeline, from the number, represents slightly above 10% of Russian exports to Western Europe. We'd need to know how many of the lines they have cut...

GDF apparently says that they are currently losing 20% of their Russian supplies, which represents 4% of their total supplies.

The article this graph was in talks about cuts at a similar rate across the network - i.e., countries cut their own usage share by the same amount, thus what exits a transit country falls by the same amount. The article also mentions another pipeline that comes in via Austria, also supplied by Russian gas (but presumably via Slovenia), which experienced a similar drop but time-delayed. Here is the graph for the second pipeline:

Here is a combined graph for all four feed-in types in Hungary - the red is the Ukrainian line, the yellow ther Austrian, green is what comes from underground storage facilities, blue is own production.

A lot of fun was made of Bush when he embarrassed himself by confusing Slovakia and Slovenia while talking to a visiting Slovenian dignatary. In Dubya's and DoDo's defence, though, I recently realized that this is a very understandable mistake, being as though Slovakia is called Slovensko in Slovak (Slovenia being Slovinsko).

To further complicate things, 'Slovensko' in Slowenian means, you guessed it, 'Slowenian'. (They call their own country Repúblika Slovénija, and the other country Slovaška.)

To separate myself from Dubya (eek!!!), I doubt he knew any of this before.
