Great! you may update me about the conflict of Ukraine and Russia over the price charges of pipeline projects. During my research paper, I studied about this conflict. Ukraine is ex-soviet republic and facing Russia's monopoly in transmission of crude oil and gas to Europe. You may also join my group "South Asia Peacebuilders" and let you know about the South Asia. Later I will invite you in my group. Thanx
