The Ukrainian flag fluttered over the regional headquarters of Mariupol Friday after government forces reclaimed the port city from pro-Russian separatists in heavy fighting and said they had regained control of a long stretch of the border with Russia."At 10:34 a.m. [0734 GMT] the Ukrainian flag was raised over City Hall in Mariupol," Interior Minister Arsen Avakov wrote on Facebook, less than six hours after the attack began on the city of 500,000, Ukraine's biggest Azov Sea port.A ministry aide said the government forces stormed the rebels after they were surrounded and given 10 minutes to surrender. Ukraine said Friday it was ready to pay a compromise price of $326 per 1,000 cubic metres for Russian natural gas to avert the threat of Moscow cutting off supplies and allow time to reach a long-term pricing agreement.This could disrupt supplies to the European Union as it gets about half its gas imports from Russia, half of them via Ukraine.
