Russia cuts Ukranian gas is another article about the same topic. Please merge these articles. --SonicR 19:47, 1 January 2006 (UTC)

Shouldn't this article be the lead, instead of the rape article? Nyarlathotep 17:10, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Cubic feet/Meters???[edit]

Additionally, Russia does not want to honor its contract to supply gas at $50 per 1000 cubic meters until 2008. By comparison, gas produced by OPEC costs $11.4 per 1000 cubic feet (December 28, 2005)

Goggle calculator says: 1 cubic meters = 35.3146667 cubic feet, so it should read:

Does anybody wanna check my math?

Apparently not, so the changes have been put in the article (sorry for not signing my post before). --85.81.10.158 14:40, 2 January 2006 (UTC)


Sorry if i'm out of my depth, but what is 'rape article'? have i violated some rule i was unable to uncover? Apologies if I have. Jacub.

If you check the main page at the moment, the top story is Rape suspects in Ciudad Juárez arrested. This energy story is perhaps more internationally important news that should occupy that slot, leaving the question of what goes in as Second Lead. However, according to the BBC, the supply has been turned back on, or at least that the quantity through the Urkraine has been increased to take account of the syphoning.

I'm not sure if that merits a new article, or an update to this one. --Brian McNeil / talk 22:01, 2 January 2006 (UTC)
