“EU states may be able to supply Ukraine by gas from the west. Alexei Miller, the CEO of Gazprom, only once said that if this happens his company would go to court. The fact he never repeated it again, indicate that the legal ground of say Slovakia, Hungary or Poland selling gas to Naftogaz most probably does not violate the contract between Gazprom and the gas companies of those Central European states.

International Security Index iSi as of August 1, 2014 reached 2758 points, which is 9 points lower than the previous month. Further decrease of Index iSi is associated with the sharp aggravation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the launch of the ground operation in the Gaza Strip by Tel Aviv, heavy fighting with radical militants in Iraq and Libya, the crisis in eastern Ukraine, where the Malaysian passenger plane was shot down amidst the fighting between the conflict sides.
