Mr. Putin's words... and deeds

27th April 2006

"Mr. Putin assured Chancellor Merkel that "Russia will always be a reliable energy supplier". Mr. Putin was speaking as he launced a campaign to be allowed to control all the downstream gas networks in Western Europe.

7th January 2009

Slovakia declares a state of emergency as no gas at all has come through the pipe from Russia.

All of South East Europe reports complete shut-down- no gas at all being shipped. Poland reports 85% fall in supply, Italy, Austria over 90% and Germany "Significant disruption".

Happy Orthodox Christmas.
