Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for this diary, and welcome on eurotrib!

Ukraine is always a topic of interest to me, as I wrote my PhD dissertation in 1995 on the independence of Ukraine, and I have little to add on your description of the overall situation.

On the gas situation, I'll refer you to my recent front page stories on various pipelines, one of which was the Ukrainian gas situation: http://www.eurotrib.com/story/2005/12/16/72028/741. I don't think the Russians will manage to increase the price of gas shipped to Ukraine.
