Assistant Director Robert Orttung authors article on Russia's foreign energy policy.
-Gazprom has stopped exporting gas to Ukraine. Previoiusly, the company sold cheap gas to its neighbor in exchange for political influence and the ability to maintain military bases in Crimea. After Moscow's ally Viktor Yanukovych was cast out as the president of Ukrain, Gazprom began to charge Ukrain Europe's highest price, while the Ukrainians insist on continued low prices. IERES's Robert Orttung and Indra Overland from NUPI provide an overview of Russia's use of energy as a foreign policy tool, and show that the Russians use energy as both carrot and stick in regards to neighboring countries. They also show that energy has only a limited impact in foreign policy. This is the most cited article ever published in the Journal of Eurasian Studies.
