Институциональная основа энергетического сотрудничества в рамках Единого экономического пространства Беларуси, Казахстана и России
The consequences of the recent political crisis in Ukraine will inevitably lead to the review of the relations between the European Union and Russia. In these new conditions, the members of the Common Economic Space of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia must develop a new concept of energy security. This new concept should allow to decrease substantially the influence of the export of hydrocarbons on the economic development of abovementioned countries, thus increasing the competitiveness of their national economies. As a first measure, the members of the Eurasian Union should create the single energy market; creation of that market increase the level of their economic development. The main pillars of the future single energy market will be: institutional environment, infrastructure, common external energy policy, innovative cooperation and creation of the economy of sustainable development. In addition to that, we review the legislative instruments necessary for the regulation of energy cooperation, as well as the relations between Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia in the framework of the Customs Union and the Common Economic Space.
