    The Ukrainians are a hearty bunch. A little cold weather won’t make them pay up.

    Shame on those dastardly Russians for expecting Ukraine’s past due gas bills to be paid, and to be paid for current and future deliveries! There’s a lot to be criticised about Russia’s behavior in Ukraine, but demanding payment for gas delivered is not one of them. Incidentally, there appears to be little understanding here of the fact that the EU’s contracts are take or pay, i.e., the EU doesn’t have the option of only paying for what it takes. It will pay for any gas diverted by or to Ukraine.

    IMF doesn’t want its money to be used to pay off the Russians. There is a big surprise.
