It's cold without natural gas. Ukraine needs it at the current low prices which are offered by Russia. Does anyone remember when they cut off the gas? I do, it was cold. I don't have a "side" but it's just the way things go. Unless the EU really has something significant to offer, I doubt the Ukranian government will bite.

Et tu, RT? This news day is an assault on Russia! I went all the way to you to escape it, and this is what I see? This saddens me. PLEASE do not contribute to widening, perpetuation or furthering the massive political black hole that exists where should stand proud nations!

Do not offer them any money. Russia dose not need Ukrain... We all know that. What Russia is going to buy with this money? A bunch of hungry people with later more demands for money?
Russia has enough of everything it's need to develop inner powers and sources.

so Russia offers 15 billions dollars, EU offers 100 million dollars.. hmm, i do wonder which of these two can offer economic development and ability to FEED yourself especially when Ukraine needs REAL hard load of money..

last time i heard my electrical company didn't accept "freedom and democracy" as payment..they said they want MONEY!
