Actually it was Russia threatening to shut it off. But, nonetheless, yes, you're right about them being #2 in oil and a big supplier of natural gas. Europe won't do a thing, nor will the US and like I've told others, the Ukraine and it's leaders don't have a backbone either, just like most of Eastern Europe. I'm American, but I'm Slovak, Russian, Ukrainian and Hungarian [along with a couple of others minutely], so it really bugs me what Putin did. However, if I was the leader of the Ukraine, when Russia mobilized the other day, I would have done the same, then I would have moved some troops around the country as well as placed ships at various points. When Russia would have tried to cross the border, I would have given the command to take out their positions, and we would have started war. It's BS moving into another country that isn't yours, just like it was when they moved into Georgia. But, we'll see what happens.
