Summary

Russia’s Gazprom has retained its Ukrainian market despite Kiev’s demand for gas falling amid an economic downturn in the country.

According to an official statement by Ukraine’s national gas company, Naftogaz stopped buying gas from Russia on November 25, 2015 because Russia offered gas prices that were not competitive.

Turkey is training Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar fighters close to the border of Crimea. The Crimean Tatars, who are disloyal to Russia, are now moving to the North of this peninsula to support these fighters.

Disproof

According to RFE/RL, since the beginning of the Russian annexation of Crimea, at least 10,000 Crimean Tatars have fled Crimea due to discrimination and lawlessness (bit.ly/1qiX0A4), . The EU has reaffirmed its deep concern at the deterioration of the human rights situation in the Crimean peninsula, including the denial of freedom of expression, freedom of peaceful assembly, freedom of religion and belief, and the persecution of persons belonging to minorities, in particular the Crimean Tatars (bit.ly/1MdiecD), .
