SANTANDER, Espagne (AFP) - European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso pressed Russia and Ukraine on Monday to resolve a dispute that has effectively halted gas supplies to the ex-Soviet state.

"I would like once again to call on the two parties to make an effort to compromise," Barroso told an economic forum in Santander, northern Spain. A compromise plan on the table "is a good proposal", he said.
