Russia and Ukraine agree gas deal


Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has promised there will be no "shocks" in Europe's gas supply this winter.

At a meeting between Mr Putin and Ukraine's prime minister, it appeared an agreement had already been reached over Russia's supply of gas to its neighbour.

Parts of central Europe had their gas cut back in January as Russia and Ukraine argued over prices.
