MOSCOW, July 2 Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry
Medvedev on Wednesday said a "full-scale" gas crisis between
Moscow and Kiev will develop by autumn, after Gazprom
last month cut off gas supplies to Ukraine over unpaid bills.
"Ukraine is not paying for gas. The debt is enormous. They
take gas from underground storages. By autumn there will be a
full-scale gas crisis," Medvedev wrote on his Facebook page.
Russian gas flows to Europe via Ukraine have so far remained
stable in spite of the row between Kiev and Moscow over prices.
