The Russian and Ukrainian prime ministers have struck a deal to resume Russian natural gas exports to Europe via Ukraine as soon as Tuesday.
Vladimir Putin and Yulia Tymoshenko reached the agreement after a day of delicate talks in Moscow.
Under the deal, Ukraine will start paying for Russian gas at the much-higher European prices from next year.
The dispute between Moscow and Kiev has disrupted gas supplies to much of Europe for almost two weeks.
As supplies begin to run out … these little disputes will become a more common occurrence.
