And in local news, some residents in the Black Sea port of Sevastopol were alarmed by the smell of natural gas.

So, match those headlines with a country in eastern Europe.
Geo Answer:

The answer is Ukraine. President Chavez met with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to talk about energy. Ukraine promised to help develop oil and gas fields in Venezuela. And Venezuela vowed to send more oil to Ukraine � and neighboring Belarus. Both countries are looking to diversify their energy supplies, so as not to depend too much on Russia.
