Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the impending gas crisis. Which, it seems, is beginning today
Fortunately, one day later we read that Russia agrees to ease Ukraine gas supply terms...
Russia has agreed to ease the terms under which it supplies gas to Ukraine, in a deal which Moscow says should prevent disruption in coming months.

The deal was announced after talks between Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Ukraine's Yulia Tymoshenko.

It means Ukraine will not be fined for using less gas than in its current contract, because of the downturn.
