I believe they also turned off the gas to Russia also. So I think it isn't so much Putin's hand in this but just plain old fashioned greed.

Yes. You are right:

"Niyazov was also quoted as saying Turkmenistan is negotiating with the Russian oil firm Gazprom on gas deliveries to Russia at the same price as today's deal with Ukraine.

Turkmenistan was previously selling gas to both Ukraine and Russia at 44 dollars per 1,000 cubic meters.

Turkmenistan cut off its gas deliveries to Russia and Ukraine on 1 January after a disagreement over prices."

My mistake.
