Please join the Atlantic Council on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Atlantic Council Headquarters (1030 15th Street NW, 12th Floor, West Tower Elevators) for a timely discussion on Russia’s energy strategy, the final event in a four-part series on Russia Today and Tomorrow: Internal Strengths and Weaknesses.
Russia remains one of the largest oil and natural gas producers in the world. Its economy largely depends on energy exports, with revenues accounting for about a half of the country’s federal budget. While sanctions restrict the flow of Western investment, European states remain Russia’s main energy importers. At the same time, Russian energy companies have been steadily expanding their presence in the East, focusing on cooperation with partners in the Asia-Pacific region. As the Russian economy continues to suffer due to low gas prices around the world, the future strategy of the country’s energy sector is particularly relevant.
Dr. Tatiana Mitrova, director, of the Energy Center at the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, will be presenting a paper of Russia’s energy strategy. This will be followed by a panel discussion which will explore the current state of the energy industry in Russia, as well as its immediate and long-term strategy and influence of the Russian government.
