Serbian gas and generosity

The gas spat between Russia and the Ukraine has been resolved. Gas should start pumping back through the pipelines to Bosnia (amongst other countries) in the next couple of days.

An unexpected side effect of the crisis has been an improvement of relations between Bosnia and Serbia. Apparently Serbia, also badly affected by the crisis, managed to negotiate a deal for some emergency gas provisions from some other EU countries and offered some of the gas to Bosnia, at no cost and therefore providing some very much needed domestic heating over the weekend when temperatures were reportedly as low as -29C (See more on this story here).
