Russia: Gas Resumes After Ukraine Pays 10/31 06:04

   MOSCOW (AP) -- Russia says gas supplies to Ukraine will resume after it pays 
off the first debt installment next week.

   Alexei Miller, the chief of Russia's state-controlled Gazprom natural gas 
giant, made the statement Friday hours after Russia, Ukraine and the European 
Union thrashed out a $4.6 billion deal that will guarantee Russian gas supplies 
to Ukraine and further on to the EU.

   The deal eased fears that Europe will end up shivering this winter as 
occurred during a 2008 gas dispute when Ukraine siphoned gas intended for 
Europe and Russia turned off the taps in response.

   Moscow cut off gas supplies to Ukraine in June over unpaid debts, a move 
that followed the ouster of Ukraine's Russia-friendly leader and the Kremlin's 
annexation of Crimea.
