Gas to flow after deal in Moscow

The Russian and Ukrainian prime ministers have struck a deal at talks in Moscow to resume Russian natural gas exports to Europe via Ukraine shortly.

Vladimir Putin and Yulia Tymoshenko emerged to brief reporters, ending a day of delicate talks.

Under the deal, Ukraine will start paying for Russian gas at the much-higher European prices from next year.

The dispute between Moscow and Kiev has disrupted gas supplies to much of Europe for almost two weeks.
