Ukraine: Gas Deal Not Bad

Orange Ukraine says that the new gas deal between Russia and Ukraine is not bad, and breaks down the good and bad in it.

  • Many are labeling Russia’s pressure on Ukraine to pay market prices for natural gas as “Cold War” tactics. Of course, the Ukrainian government is paying the full price for their anti-Russian rhetoric and pro-Western orientation. Russia is flexing the only muscles she has: natural resources. But, it’s not so much a message to the Ukraine as to the West. And it’s not so much “Cold War” as Realist geo-politics.
