Yanukovych goes to Turkmenistan seeking gas
Ukraine is piling pressure on Russia to reduce prices for its gas. It now pays about $355 per 1,000 cubic meters of Russian gas, but wants to have that price lowered to $230.
Turkmenistan and Ukraine do not share a border, which means that any gas deliveries would have to pass through Russia, greatly complicating any prospective agreement.
