Russia's president said on Friday the EU should consider giving Kiev a loan to ensure that natural gas supplies to Europe via Ukraine are uninterrupted.

Speaking at a news conference after a Russia-EU summit in the Far Eastern city of Khabarovsk, Dmitry Medvedev said Ukraine needs to pump some 19.5 billion cubic meters, worth over $4 billion, of gas into its underground storage facilities.

It's funny situation that Russia is explaining such simple things to EU. Give Ukrainians the money they are asking for or they will repeat the January situation.

Both EU and US should have given them loans, because Ukrainian economy is falling. Russia can do it too, but the government was talking about some conditions I can't recall.
