AFP - Slovakia said Monday that Russia had warned it might halt oil supplies through Ukraine to three European Union countries over a price dispute.
  
Quoting a letter from the European Commission -- the 27-nation EU's executive arm -- the government said Russia had announced "the possibility of suspending oil supplies to... Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic."
