Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ukraine's relationship with Russia concerning gas has always been incestuous. The law that says "you must pay your bills" doesn't apply, or hasn't for the past 20-odd years.

Admittedly, if Ukraine really wants to be independent of Russia, that would have to change.

As for the EU, it's not in Russia's interest to inflict real pain, so it won't happen. Just as the EU will not attempt to inflict any pain on Russia over Ukraine.
