Euro League: EU vs Russia

... metaphorically a 'Geopolitical Football Championship'. Though, in all fairness, it is hard to see it as a unified team. As it appears more like a political trophy for two major sides.

On the other, Russia aims to make sure it achieves its goal of restoring 80% of the defunct USSR’s market for likewise a myriad of ...

Wild World – Dr. Adrian Pabst Interview

... the one hand, and authoritarian consolidation, on the other hand. Energy Calamity It is argued by some that the Russo-European relationship has soured creating an anti-Russian stance. Has this occurred due to European attempts to lower gas import prices, or more serious underlining issues? Europe’s potential alternative pipeline has even been called “Nabucco” – does Europe really feel enslaved by the Russia energy dependence in a Verdian sense? For far too ...

Central Asia: Energy Meadow – Dr. Rico Isaacs Interview

... works with ‘sheikh style’ regimes of Central Asia – so additionally does the model of governance influence relations? That is a good, but difficult question as there have been evident tensions with a lot of it around energy, as E.U. has been trying to lower gas prices whilst Russia has cut off gas supplies to Ukraine and Belarus [not helping the relationship]. Also, a lot of it has to do with psychology of the Russian foreign policy. Russia should be a superpower and it should be able to throw its weight ...

... sides can mutually benefit; the contract is a hybrid, as it is both long-term and incorporates hubs to determine pricing. But equally, the rest of Europe must value Russia’s interests in this interdependent bond as no one else can offer as much gas. E.U. must aid predictability by outlining an energy policy and do so on mutual terms, especially with what pace 70-80% ratio mentioned earlier will fall.

Krutikhin says the Eastern Expansion Project needs particular attention; for instance in respect to gas, China opposes paying over $290 per 1000 cubic meters, which is $110 cheaper per measure in contrast to the European consumers, whilst gas is also only really needed in Manchuria.
