Ukraine has been uncoupled from a joint power grid with Russia because it was taking too much power from its northern neighbor, government officials said yesterday. "This happened because of a worsening energy balance between Ukraine and Russia. We started to take too much power from Russia and violated agreements," said Olexander Voyevoda, a top engineer at Ukraine’s energy ministry. (4)
