EWI Senior Fellow Danila Bochkarev,spoke in Ljubljana, Slovenia recently about the effects of the energy industry on EU-Russia relations.
“Europe's becoming more active on the energy [front], while Russia is becoming more defensive,” he said. “The idea is how to find a compromise.”
Bochkarev listed some areas of conflict over energy, including market competition and deregulation, climate change/environmental standards, and maintaining secure gas supplies.
