EU countries are free to decide whether or not to pay them for the "incapacity" of Ukraine.
If paid at the expense of "Gazprom" - the pay for the goods, avoiding the risks associated with the Ukrainian corruption and theft.
Overall, Washington's guidance on this issue is unequivocal - in spite of the negative consequences of Ukraine, the EU has to do everything possible to harm Russia.
Rest is up to the performers of the possible order.
If true kamikaze and the US - will perform.
And then in the cold winter evenings will have to ride in Europe.
If not, then the profit and Gazprom and the EU.
Ukraine - performed without theft and fraud.
What( via the link) compared with Mexico, Ukraine - do not think so.
Russia really stands for production chains except one - the unreliable Ukraine, but that in the subsequent squeeze Ukraine as it does the United States with Mexico. .. it will not.
Russia has a different mentality, Russia is not "cut off the natives', like the United States( this I do not mean Ukrainians) and initiated the soldiers based on their interests.
Russian mentality - and long-term mutually beneficial cooperation.

"During that fight, then feel. .."
It is time to grow Ukraine.
Understand that early and that it nothing at all, but what to do, just took the initiative and the desire - and keep commitments.
In principle, the gas is already paid from borrowed funds provided by the same Europe.Just so no one for Ukraine will not pay - the money will issue credit.In addition, Europe is stepping up purchases at a record pace through the "Nord Stream".Therefore, if the Europeans before winter fill its UGS, the Ukrainian transit can become completely irrelevant - enough to supply current through the Baltics and Belarus, and in Europe the gas will be redirected from the same in Germany, as the main operator of the gas market.
