Ukraine - Oct 16

It’s no secret that with winter approaching and Russian gas supplies cut off to Ukraine that Kiev is beginning to become desperate for a solution. A number of negotiations have been held with EU countries with multiple instances of backflow and Norway’s Statoil promising energy supply. While better than nothing, Ukraine is still in massive debt to Russia and worse, still needs gas supply from the nation in order to ensure energy stability. Talks are expected between Putin and Poroshenko in Milan this week with the Ukrainian president claiming the two are “close” to a deal. Source: BBC
