Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Re: Russian-Ukrainian gas deal - what's behind it?

The pro-nuclear lobby is currently pushing very hard through Europe; in UK the debate has been more or less officially reopened a few months ago (and at the moment BBC coverage is quite indulgent, on the verge of being partisan), and it even resurfaced in Italy, as it happens every time the oil prices go up (this time with a peak-oil twist). The awful truth is that nuclear looks like a good solution to Kyoto-induced constraints and oncoming oil scarcity.

So I would excuse "conspiracy-theorist" reactions, they are just picking up the general feeling that the pro-nuclear lobby might have a chance in the next couple of years.
