Because of the cold, Ukraine will be left without gas, and Europe will turn into a glacier. Ukraine doubled its consumption of Russia's transit gas into Europe, which can lead to a repeated "gas crisis" like the one in 2009. Ukraine's gas supplies will be used up in 70 days.

Summary of Disinformation

Because of the cold, Ukraine will be left without gas, and Europe will turn into a glacier. Ukraine doubled its consumption of Russia’s transit gas into Europe, which can lead to a repeated “gas crisis” like the one in 2009. Ukraine’s gas supplies will be used up in 70 days.

Disproof

The article refers to an article published in Die Tageszeitung. However, the German article contains no mention of Ukraine being left without gas or Europe turning into a glacier. It also does not say that Ukraine's gas supplies will be used up in 70 days, but that Ukraine may start to be affected by lack of gas in 70 days. REN TV's translation is misleading. bit.ly/2jhxkU2,
