Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks at a Cabinet meeting in the Novo-Ogaryovo residence outside Moscow, Wednesday, April 9, 2014. President Vladimir Putin has threatened that Russia's state-owned gas company could ask Ukraine to pay for gas in advance, according to Russian state news agencies. In a meeting Wednesday with government ministers, Putin said that asking for advance payments "corresponded with the contract" between Ukraine and Russia, but asked that state energy giant Gazprom refrain from such drastic measures until "additional consultations" between both sides.
