Interesting little tidbit of news:
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday. That Ukraine will receive a discount of $100 per 1,000 cu m at the natural gas price of $330 and a 30% discount on other prices. He also commented that the Black Sea Fleet will stay in place for the next 25 years. This announcement came after a meeting between the two presidents of Russia and Ukraine after a bit of productive finagling.
A smile, handshake and cooperation that is all it takes. Would that have been to hard for the last Ukraine president?
Oh – I forgot Viktor Yushchenko was bought and paid for by America…
Windows to Russia!
