Today we talk about a cut in gas supplies. But not the cut-off the Western media is so obsessed with. It’s provoked not by debts, but by raw politics. Georgia has blocked the delivery of Russian gas through its territory to South Ossetia. What does it mean for the people of S. Ossetia? Could it provoke a humanitarian disaster? Could the international community intervene? We’ll be talking about it with Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the State Duma International Affairs Committee.
