The article analyzes the impact of problems in the Ukraine-Russia gas deal on European energy security. The Russia-Ukraine dispute started when Ukraine rejected gas price levels demanded by the Russian state gas monopoly Gazprom. Russia then cut its gas supply to Ukraine on January 1, 2006. A compromise deal involving Ukraine's purchase of gas from Gazprom's Swiss firm has been agreed upon by the two countries.
