Tensions between Russia and Ukraine will escalate following these events. Meanwhile, Russia’s state-controlled gas company, Gazprom, said Wednesday that it stopped sending gas to Ukraine on Wednesday morning and will supply no more because Ukraine has not paid in advance for more deliveries.

Ukrainian said it was its own decision to stop buying gas from Russia after it was offered better prices from other European countries.
