Gazprom: sends Ukraine new warning signals over gas price

In a world with growing international competition for supplies, Gazprom is reported to have agreed to gradually increase the price that it pays for Central Asian gas, in order to secure supplies from the region that may otherwise be exported to China and to Europe directly via the Nabucco pipeline.

This would be a setback for EU policy, but the union needs to face economic realities while improving energy security.
