BBC News — Russia warns EU of Ukraine gas shortage

Russia says there is a risk that gas shortages this winter could force Ukraine to siphon off supplies of Russian gas meant for EU customers. 
Ukraine's gas reserves have reached a "critical" state, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said. 
He was speaking after talks in Moscow with EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger. The EU is anxious to ensure secure gas supplies for the winter.
Well played.
