Africa Center Director J. Peter Pham is quoted by US News and World Report on Russia's natural gas exploration in Africa:

“Already, we’ve seen the European Union hemming and hawing over sanctions to Russia for its conduct in Ukraine,” says J. Peter Pham, director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council, who wrote last month about Russia’s advances in Africa. “This would add another reason to pause for Europeans if, in some future crisis, they face not only cutoffs of supplies from Russia, but potentially cutoffs from alternative supplies in Algeria.”

[...]

“Just because the situation isn’t going to be immediate doesn’t mean the solution should be put off forever,” Pham argues. “This is exactly how Europe ended up in the vulnerable position it is now.”
