Анализ российско-европейских «газовых» стратегий
High energy resource dependence of Ukraine's economy on gas imported from Russia is caused above all by the fact that while the Ukrainian industry is largely dependent on the Russian fuel there are no alternatives for Ukraine to diversify its import in the medium term. Key Ukrainian industries (the ore-metallurgical complex and the chemical industry) are too much dependent on the Russian gas.
The author gives a comprehensive analysis of the current state of EU-Russia energy relations with a special view on alternative energy resources for EU. Diversificaton seems to be the only way towards energy sustainability for Europe, however, there exist a lot of other triggering factors in EU-Russia energy rlelations.
