Washington is making Ukraine stall on a gas settlement agreement with Russia to try and draw out the conflict, journalist and broadcaster Neil Clark told RT. Moscow offered Ukraine a 25 percent discount on gas, but Kiev insists this is not enough.
RT: We heard just a few moments ago from President Putin, sending out a warning to Kiev. Do you think they are likely to listen?
Neil Clark: I’m not sure they will do actually. I think he’s absolutely right to send this warning out, but of course this is already being portrayed in the West as Russia trying to make threats and it’s quite remarkable, isn’t it? Ukraine has been offered a very generous discount on this and yet they still want more and it really is quite incredible the nerve and the Chutzpah of the Ukrainian government on this.
