Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have trouble imagining that this arrangement for paying Russia for Ukraine's gas will last past the spring, if it makes it that far. And then how will Ukrainians react if they have to pay, (gasp), full market price for gas. They are already having to import coal from South Africa. Next summer could be interesting.
