EU Asked to Help Ukraine

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called on the European Union on Monday to lend money to Ukraine to help Kiev pay for Russian gas supplies.

“If there are problems, we are asking our European colleagues to get involved and lend Ukraine the necessary money. Give them a least a billion.

Why be greedy? [The EU] have the money, so why don’t they fork it out?” Putin said.
