Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Two updates from the Hungarian press - sorry neither came with sources, but maybe someone who knows where to look will discover:

  • The deal doesn't keep the original 25:35 billion cubic metres ratio of 'Russian' and 'Turkmen' gas, instead the Gazprom part (230$/m^3) was reduced to 17 bcm, the 'Turkmen' part ($50-65) increased to 40 bcm.

  • Allegedly, the technicians of the German gas distributor say that their measurements confirm the Gazprom claim that Ukraine branched off gas to sell to Romania.
