Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk blamed the breakdown of talks in a gas pricing dispute on Russia, saying Moscow had hoped to cause Kiev problems in winter.

Ukraine's energy minister said Russia had cut off all gas supplies to Kiev this morning after the two countries failed to reach an agreement on gas prices.
