Ukraine Threatens to Cut Russian Energy for Europe

According to a report in The Australian, the Ukraine is warning of possibly cutting off Russian oil and gas flows to Europe banning all Russian airlines from entering its airspace, as a response to Moscow’s criticism for suspending a ceasefire at the crash site of MH17.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk stated that these measures are only a part of a sanctions bill that will be submitted to their parliament.

Energy disputes in the past have resulted in cuts in supply for European consumer.
