After that it broke the agreement and demanded to lower the price(from 250$ to 150$ per sth, sth like that)for comparison europe pays 450$ for the same quantity.
And also, as far as i know, ukraine has a debt to pay out to russia. So everything is not as easy as you think. Ukraine isn't in a helpless situation. it's very hard to explain, so i advise you to read more and just look at the events from both sides.
That's the same what I know :/ I said this too maybe with worse english though
