Russian leader Vladimir Putin in a letter to EU leaders said he might cut off gas supplies to Ukraine, which transits huge volumes to EU clients, unless it starts repaying a $16.6bn debt. His spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Ria Novosti the situation is "critical" and that Putin proposed "urgent measures".
