Commenting article: Russian PM Warns Ukraine over New Gas Crisis

"If this payment is not made as a result of the recent operations and arrests of some officials, it will lead to a suspension of the supply of our fuel both to consumers in Ukraine and to our consumers in Europe," Putin told the Russian government on Thursday, as cited by the Kyiv Post.

Ukrainian national security service agents raided Wednesday the head office of the state energy company Naftogaz in Kiev.

"We are seeing the events taking place in Ukraine solely as an internal affair of Ukraine. At the same time, we cannot but point out the possible negative consequences for energy supplies to consumers in Ukraine and Europe" Putin said.

SNA:

Change your headline. You state "Russian President" and then the story is about what Putin said. Putin is PM.

Fact check instead of throwing stones!
