    Russia's confrontation with the West over the growing unrest in eastern Ukraine could lead to another energy crisis in the European countries that are dependent on Russian energy. Europe gets about one-third of its gas supplies from Russia, and about half of it is dispatched through Ukraine. Meanwhile, as Zlatica Hoke reports, the EU is mediating a deal between Russia and Ukraine that would secure a steady gas supply for next winter.

    Shameful propaganda piece in support of a failed Obama Administration. Publication of such trash with foregone conclusions without a factual basis makes VoA useless and a waste of taxpayer money. Hundreds upon hundreds of heavily armed Ukranian soldiers, militia, police and special forces in eastern Ukraine have switched sides and now fight against the unelected regime in Kiev. This included units with tanks, armored personnel carriers, heavy machine guns, anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles. Has Washington, Kiev, London or Berlin any proof that these units are not the ones who shot down the helicopters? No. Kiev and Obama have a vested interest in convincing the World that Putin is the bad actor and they are doing so with misdirection and omission.

    Informative and even-handed -- a high signal-to-noise ratio to be sure. Irony of ironies, these days Americans must tune into U.S. government-funded Voice of America to avoid the uninformative propaganda of America's own commercial and publically owned broadcasters. I laugh. My tax dollars put to good use for a change. Keep up the good work.
