Russia-Ukraine Gas Talks Resume as EU Seeks to Avert Supply Cut

Russia-Ukraine Gas Talks Resume as EU Seeks to Avert Supply Cut (Bloomberg) -- Russia and Ukraine are set to restart natural gas talks later on Thursday, with the European Union seeking to avoid disruptions in imports this winter from its biggest supplier.

Matt Gaetz and Donald Trump Jr. have shared posts with the name -- says it is not against the rules. With public hearings on the matter scheduled to start next week, this is unlikely to go away anytime soon.
