Swan rampant

Brinksmanship

Hey, jenni_snake?  You there?

So what's the common talk in Kyiv?  Is one of them going to blink before Sunday?  And will it be Putin or Yushchenko?

I'm starting to get curious as to whether any of the EU nations who are going to be affected if Russia turns off the spigot are quietly putting pressure on them behind the scenes to find a solution.  I haven't seen a hint of it in either the Financial Times or New York Times.  Any thoughts?

If anyone else is following this story, feel free to chime in.
