Ukraine Crisis and the ‘Gas Game’

Over the last few days, tensions between Russia and the United States-NATO have been rising over the Ukraine issue. Ukraine and the Western countries have alleged Russia of amassing 120,000 troops at the Ukraine border, a move that the Ukrainians look suspiciously at, fearing potential Russian aggression. However, Russia has consistently denied these charges of hostility while the West, especially the United States, has threatened Moscow to impose severe sanctions.
