Ukraine Attempts to Extort One Billion Dollars to Resume Gas Transit to EU

In this quarter alone the demanded gas would cost up to $US 1 billion. Naftogaz has sent a draft agreement to Gazprom that would amend the contract between them. The clause says the Russian company would provide the so-called process gas that is used to power compressor stations that pump the fuel through the pipelines.
