New, Clear Energy: Russia's Atomic Revolution
 
25:42
With rising demand for energy, especially electricity, the world is in need of new resources. Fossil fuels produce harmful carbon emissions and green technology may never be able to provide a reliable source of renewable energy. Despite ongoing concerns about the safety of nuclear power, it's likely going to play an increasingly large role in satisfying our needs. Several projects being developed in Russia will hopefully help make nuclear's enlarged role as safe as possible. Fast neutron reactors look to be the future of the industry, while an advanced gas-cooled reactor design could have benefits beyond electricity generation. And Russia's plans for a fleet of floating nuclear power stations will bring electricity, heat and fresh water to isolated populations.

Wide of Putin and Nazarbayev at press conference 20. Cutaway media 21. People leaving at end of press conference STORYLINE: Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan signed an agreement on Thursday to build a natural gas pipeline along the Caspian Sea coast that would strengthen Moscow's monopoly on energy exports from the resource-rich region. But the plan also delivers a strong blow to Western hopes of securing alternate energy export routes. The pipeline provoked concern among energy analysts in Western Europe, which assiduously courted Turkmenistan to ship some of its vast natural gas reserves under the Caspian Sea, bypassing Russia. Turkmenistan, which has the second-largest gas reserves in the former Soviet Union, sends all its gas exports via Russia and the new agreement is likely to increase Russia's economic and political muscle in the country. The deal, which follows a preliminary agreement reached in May, ended months of tense arguments over the price of gas supplies. ""The creation of a new energy artery will enable long-term large-scale delivery of gas to our partners, and will become a substantial new contribution to the strengthening of energy security for Europe," Russia's President Vladimir Putin said. The agreement was signed after Putin's talks in the Kremlin with President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan and their conference call with Turkmen President Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov. Following months of disputes over the gas price, Russia's state-controlled monopoly OAO Gazprom gave in to Turkmen price demands last month and agreed to pay 130 dollars per 1,000 cubic metres of natural gas in the first half of 2008 and 150 dollars in the second half. The new pipeline deal will be disappointing for the United States and the European Union, which have been lobbying for a rival pipeline to be built under the Caspian Sea, bypassing Russia. Adding to the West's grievances, Nazarbayev also said after the talks that Kazakhstan would increase oil exports to Russia. However, prospects for pipelines under the Caspian have been clouded by high costs, environmental concerns and disputes over ownership of the sea resources.

Steve LeVine on Russia's New Energy Diplomacy In Brief
 
03:38
Russias enormous energy resources have generated a large profit as well as a bargaining chip in its relationship with Europe. Europe gets roughly 40 percent of its natural gas and over one-third of its oil from Russia. Journalist, author and longtime Russia-watcher Steve LeVine joins the Council to discuss Russias energy policies and how Europe and the West plan to respond to their reliance on Russian energy. How did the Russia-Ukraine natural gas disputes in 2005-2006 and 2009 impact European security and cohesion? How do the fluctuating energy prices affect the Russian economy and stability? Is Russia using its position as energy supplier as a way to send political messages and extract concessions from its allies and opponents?

► Ice Race - Border Conflicts about OIL (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
 
49:00
The Arctic is an area with massive reserves that are extremely important for billions of people – but with unclear borderlines. History has shown us that this is an extremely dangerous situation. “Border Conflict” explains that the borders in the Arctic are disputed and have not been finally determined despite the fact that they have been defined in accordance with international criteria. Zoia Vylka Ravna is a member of the indigenous Nenets people, but she has lived away from the Russian tundra for a long time. She is now returning to her homeland in the far north of Russia where she becomes witness to the fact that her people’s traditional grazing grounds have been invaded by a new industry. Like the members of many other indigenous groups around the Polar basin she feels as though she has been robbed and forgotten. Will the countries in the north comply with international regulations while a desperate hunt for energy resource is taking place? Will it be possible to share this area without any military conflicts arising – and will the exploitation of natural resources be able to occur peacefully? In the final episode of the series “Ice Race” we stand at an important and dangerous crossroads in our search for more oil and gas. Because even though we are starting to use new sources of energy, the world will be dependent on petroleum activities for many decades to come. Despite numerous expeditions, our knowledge about the seas around the North Pole is still almost non-existent. The sovereigny of the countries around the polar basin only extends for 200 nautical miles. The remaining polar areas are administered by the UN. The race to find oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean has meant that it is therefore even more important for the five Arctic countries, i.e. USA, Russia, Canada, Norway and Denmark, to secure more of the polar basin. All these countries are therefore fighting intensely over what are sometimes overlapping border claims. These claims extend all the way to the outer limits of the continental shelf, i.e. the shallow waters off these countries’ coasts. If the new race culminates in predatory activities and major conflict, the indigenous populations could become the first and greatest loosers!

European Commission VP says Europe needs new energy resources
 
00:45
The European Commission’s vice president says Europe needs to look for new energy sources after Russia’s abrupt decision to cancel the multi-billion-dollar South Stream gas pipeline project. Kristalina Georgieva said the Russian decision shows the necessity of diverse energy sources for Europe. But she also added that Brussels will continue internal talks to resolve the problems which Moscow says led to the collapse of the project. During his visit to Turkey on Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the project is shelved. South Stream was supposed to supply gas to southern Europe. The project was seen as a rival to Nabucco pipeline project. Nabucco was meant to reduce European dependence on Russian energy resources.

Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation[10] (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.[11] It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the U.S. state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012.[12] Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Eastern Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. The nation's history began with that of the East Slavs, who emerged as a recognizable group in Europe between the 3rd and 8th centuries AD.[13] Founded and ruled by a Varangian warrior elite and their descendants, the medieval state of Rus arose in the 9th century. In 988 it adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire,[14] beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium.[14] Rus' ultimately disintegrated into a number of smaller states; most of the Rus' lands were overrun by the Mongol invasion and became tributaries of the nomadic Golden Horde.[15] The Grand Duchy of Moscow gradually reunified the surrounding Russian principalities, achieved independence from the Golden Horde, and came to dominate the cultural and political legacy of Kievan Rus'. By the 18th century, the nation had greatly expanded through conquest, annexation, and exploration to become the Russian Empire, which was the third largest empire in history, stretching from Poland in Europe to Alaska in North America.[16][17] Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Soviet Union, the world's first constitutionally socialist state and a recognized superpower,[18] which played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II.[19][20] The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first spacecraft, and the first astronaut. The Russian Federation became the successor state of the Russian SFSR following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, and is recognized as the continuing legal personality of the All-Union state.[21] The Russian economy ranks as the eighth largest by nominal GDP and fifth largest by purchasing power parity.[4] Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources, the largest reserves in the world,[22] have made it one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas globally.[23][24] The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[25] Russia is a great power and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, a member of the G8, G20, the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Eurasian Economic Community, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and is the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT RUSSIA . Russia (Russian: Росси́я, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə]), officially the Russian Federation[12] (Russian: Росси́йская Федера́ция, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈratsɨjə]), is a country in Eurasia.[13] At 17,125,200 square kilometres (6,612,100 sq mi),[14] Russia is the largest country in the world by area, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area,[15][16][17] and the ninth most populous, with over 144 million people as of December 2017, excluding Crimea.[8] About 77% of the population live in the western, European part of the country. Russia's capital, Moscow is one of the largest cities in the world; other major cities include Saint Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Novgorod. Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the world's first constitutionally socialist state.[23] The Soviet Union played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II,[24][25] and emerged as a recognized superpower and rival to the United States during the Cold War. The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first human-made satellite and the launching of the first humans in space. By the end of 1990, the Soviet Union had the world's second largest economy, largest standing military in the world and the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[26][27][28] Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, twelve independent republics emerged from the USSR: Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and the Baltic states regained independence: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania; the Russian SFSR reconstituted itself as the Russian Federation and is recognized as the continuing legal personality and a successor of the Soviet Union.[29] It is governed as a federal semi-presidential republic. The Russian economy ranks as the twelfth largest by nominal GDP and sixth largest by purchasing power parity in 2015.[30] Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources are the largest such reserves in the world,[31] making it one of the leading producers of oil and natural gas globally.[32][33] The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction.[34] Russia is a great power as well as a regional power and has been characterised as a potential superpower. It is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and an active global partner of ASEAN,[35][36][37] as well as a member of the G20, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), and the World Trade Organization (WTO), as well as being the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and one of the five members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), along with Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

How the Syrian Crisis is REALLY about Oil and Europe | REAL MATTERS
 
04:50
► Subscribe on YouTube : http://bit.ly/2uQHX6B ► Instagram : http://bit.ly/2uQIq8R Lets look at the oil and natural gas pipelines that run through the Middle East and Syria and why this conflict is really about Europe's addiction to oil in 2017. Remember to Like & Sub! Check out my new report. Why Erdogan is Nervous about The Kurds in Turkey : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wun4CR-DvwY&t=5s ________________ Syria itself is not a major energy producer in the region, however its importance lies as a potential transit hub from energy suppliers like Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq towards the thirsty energy markets of Europe. Notably proposed pipelines of major energy projects would pass through Syria , into Turkey and then enter the European grid. With the onset of the Civil war in Syria, the proposed pipeline projects have all been put on hold and their future is unclear. The most important aspect of this, is Europes need for energy diversity. Europe and Russia The EU’s energy thirst is estimated to be the second largest in the world after the United States. Notably, some 70- 80% of its energy requirements are satisfied by Russian gas and oil, piped in mostly through Ukraine. Disputes between Ukraine and Russia over energy first publicly surfaced in 2002 and culminated in 2009 when Russia cut supplies to Ukraine for short period of time, setting off panic in European capitals. This made the issue of Europes energy reliance on Russia more pressing. The subsequent Civil war in Ukraine is also deeply linked to this relationship. But this will be examined in a later video so please Subscribe with the button below if you want to hear more about that. European leaders came to the understanding that Europe needed a more diverse energy environment. Backed by the United States they sought to bring energy supplies, mainly from the energy rich Middle East into Europe. Syria’s position as a important transit route elevated the need for an agreement with the Syrian government that would bring supplies from the energy rich Gulf and Saudi Arabia into Europe, bypassing Russia . The Syrian Pipelines A Pipeline was proposed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar ,backed by the United States , which would use Syria as a transit route. The Pipelines would Saudi- Qatar pipeline would pass through Jodan - Syria and Turkey before entering Europe. The Syrian Government rejected the proposal. Syria's rationale for the rejection the Saudi-Qatari pipeline proposal was said to be "to protect the interests of [its] Russian ally, which is Europe's top supplier of natural gas." A competing Pipelines was also proposed dubbed The Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline . A natural gas pipeline running from Iran towards Europe via Iraq, Syria and Lebanon to supply European customers as well as Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. The pipelines ran into numerous problems mostly from US pressure and its Swiss backers have since stopped its financing. The earliest proposed Pipeline intended to bypass Russia was the Nabucco Pipeline. Which aims to bring Caucasus and Iraqi oil through Turkey, the balkans and ending in Austria. This project is also supported by a number of EU member states and the United States. The project was later scrapped in favour of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline , which has now been almost completed and will start by bringing BP’s Azerbaijani Energy through Turkey - Greece- Albanian into Italy. The project is aimed to start supplying oil and gas by 2018 and the pipeline itself is in the final stages of competition. Once ready, this will be the first major means of energy diversification in Europe.

Austria: Russia's Gazprom, Austria's OMV sign gas supplies agreement until 2040
 
05:06
Russian corporation Gazprom Export and Austria energy company OMV Gas Marketing & Trading GmbH signed an agreement on gas supplies until 2040 on Tuesday, following talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz in Vienna. SOT, Sebastian Kurz, Austrian Chancellor (German): "At the same time we hope that through an intensive dialogue, a progress will be reached in the relations between the European Union and Russia. Especially we hope that there will be progress in eastern Ukraine, so that sanctions can be removed step by step in accordance with the Minsk agreement. This is a scenario that we wish for our continent. And we are firmly convinced that only by cooperating with each other and not by opposing each other will we succeed on our continent. We believe that a win-win situation is better for both sides than a lose-lose situation." SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): "[Russia and Austria] confirmed the partnership, the mutually beneficial nature of a Russian-Austrian cooperation. Evidence of this is the solid growth in trade turnover between our countries, last year it increased by 40.5 percent and the growth continues. In the first quarter of this year, trade turnover doubled. Our visit is timed to the 50th anniversary of the signing of the first contract for the supply of natural gas from the Soviet Union to Austria. During these 50 years our country has reliably, stably supplied energy resources to Austrian consumers, while the transit of Russian energy carriers to the markets of other European countries is carried out through the territory of Austria. Thus, it is no exaggeration to say that by joint efforts, Russia and Austria are making a significant contribution to ensuring the energy security of the entire European continent. We are working together to expand cooperation in the energy sphere. Today, our leading energy companies - OMV, Gazprom - have signed an agreement on gas supplies for the period up to 2040. The Nord Stream-2 project is being continued." SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): "The Declaration on Partnership for Modernisation, adopted in 2011, is being implemented. Within its framework, 28 joint initiatives amounting to almost three billion euros are being carried out. I will especially highlight such a major infrastructure project as the creation of a wide-gauge railway from Kosice in Slovakia to Vienna." SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): "We talked about the situation in Ukraine. I informed the Federal Chancellor about how Russia sees further possibilities for settling the situation in the Donbass. It is characteristic [obvious] that both Russia and Austria are in favour of full and rigorous compliance by all parties to the conflict with Minsk agreements. We discussed the problems of the Syrian crisis. We note the readiness of Austria to join humanitarian actions in support of the population of Syria. I have already spoken many times, and I would like to take this opportunity to say once again - if Europe wants the flow of migrants, including from the region of Syria, from neighbouring countries, to decrease, it is necessary to help people to return to their homes, we need to help them to build a life in their own country." *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe Video ID: 20180605 036 Video on Demand: http://www.ruptly.tv Contact: [email protected] Twitter: http://twitter.com/Ruptly Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Ruptly

Russia's goal is $ 600 billion investment in the North Pole.
 
01:46
Russia's goal is $ 600 billion investment in the North Pole. "Russia plans to invest $ 400-600 billion over 20 years for the development of resources in the Arctic," Russian Energy Minister Novak said. Russian Energy Minister Aleksandr Novak announced plans to invest between $ 400 and $ 600 billion for the development of energy resources in the Arctic over the next 20 years. Speaking at the conference called "North Pole-Dialogue Region" in Arhangelsk, Russia, Novak said he had great potential in terms of energy resources in the Arctic. "For this reason, the projects we think need to be developed in line with our energy strategies," said Novak, who plans to invest $ 400 to $ 600 billion over the next 20 years to develop energy resources in the region. Investors from China and other countries are very interested in these projects. " Recalling that Russia produced 93 million tons of oil annually in the arctic region, Novak said, "We intend to increase the output of the North Pole production to 22 percent by 2035." Novak noted that oil prices should be between $ 70 and $ 100 per barrel for oil production in the Arctic region to be profitable, while current oil prices are positive for global supply-demand balance. According to the International Energy Agency, the North Pole has 13 per cent of the world's total undiscovered oil reserves and 30 per cent of natural gas reserves.

Russia, China sign $25 billion energy deal
 
01:35
02-18-2009 Russia, China sign $25 billion energy deal Beijing signed a deal with Moscow Tuesday to lend $25 billion to two Russian oil firms, which in turn will sell 15 million tons of crude oil a year to China for the next 20 years. The agreement will ensure the long-awaited extension of Russia's Siberia-Pacific coast pipeline to China, too. The pipeline project, agreed on late last year, will see the extension of the pipeline from the Siberian city of Skovorodino, 70 km north of the Sino-Russian border, to China. China will lend $15 billion to Russia's state-owned oil firm Rosneft and $10 billion to pipeline monopoly Transneft. China Development Bank (CDB) provided the credit for the deal, according to the Associated Press (AP). The Russian firms, on the other hand, will ensure China gets 300,000 barrels of crude a day for 20 years. China and Russia signed seven agreements on energy cooperation package programs, Xinhua said, quoting a Foreign Ministry official. The $25-billion deal is seen as a boost to Russian energy firms because the global financial crisis and a drastic drop in the crude prices have left them struggling to raise capital, AP said. The agreement was signed by Vice-Premier Wang Qishan and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin in Beijing at the third round of energy talks between the two countries. "We hope the two sides will give full play to the bilateral energy negotiation mechanism to promote bilateral energy cooperation," Wang told Sechin. Sechin replied that the two countries should intensify cooperation in fields such as energy and finance, and make joint efforts to guarantee that the agreed projects are implemented on time. A memorandum of cooperation in the energy sector signed in Moscow in October said Transneft and Rosneft could get loans from China in exchange for long-term oil sales to Beijing. But the talks were suspended on November 12 because of divergence of views on lending rates and loan guarantees, industry insiders said. Russia, the largest oil exporter after Saudi Arabia, is seeking to shift its exports focus from the West, and eyeing China as the main new market. Last year, trade between Russia and China increased 18 percent to $56.8 billion. And Premier Wen placed cooperation in resources development on top of his five proposals on economic cooperation when he visited Russia last year. The two countries have agreed to work jointly in oil production and processing, natural gas production and in chemical industries. They have agreed to expand cooperation in nuclear energy, too, including the construction of nuclear power plant in Tianwan, Jiangsu province, uranium mining, and post-processing of spent fuel.

http://www.youtube.com/user/PowerRossiya RUSSIA - At 17,075,400 square kilometres, Russia is by far the largest country in the world, covering more than a ninth of the Earth's land area. Russia is also the number one most populous nation in Europe and ninth most populous nation in the world. Russia has the world's largest reserves of mineral and energy resources,and is considered an global superpower. Russia is a federal semi presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects that has the ability to exert its influence on a global scale, possess economic, military, diplomatic, and cultural strength, which may cause other nations to consider the opinion of Russia before taking actions of their own. Russia was founded, populated and ruled by a noble Viking warrior class and their descendants called Rus, the first East Slavic state, Kievan Rus, arose in the 9th century and adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire in 988. The Vikings Scandinavian (Varangians or Rus) forget the Norsemen roots and created their own Indo European Slavic tribes, East Slavic languages, culture and roots, the first king was Rurik, electe ruler of Novgorod in 862 and founded the Rurik Dynasty which ruled Kievan Rus and then Galicia Volhynia until the 14th and Muscovy until the 16th century. Today Rurik people became in three modern East Slavic nations Belarusians, Russians and Ukrainians. Under Peter I (Peter the Great), Russia was proclaimed an Empire in 1721 and became recognized as a world power. Ruling from 1682 to 1725, Peter defeated Sweden in the Great Northern War, forcing it to cede West Karelia and Ingria Estland, and Livland, securing Russia's access to the sea and sea trade. On the Baltic Sea Peter founded a new capital called Saint Petersburg. In 1762 entered into power the Empress of Russia Catherine II (Catherine the Great) the most powerful women in human history and conquer of West. Under her direct auspices the Russian Empire expanded into Western European lands, improved its administration, and continued to modernize Russia as the most powerful empire in the world. Napoleon made a major misstep when, following a dispute with Tsar Alexander I, he launched an invasion of the tsar's realm in 1812. The Napoleon campaign was a catastrophe. Although Napoleon's Grande Armée made its way to Moscow, the Russians' scorched earth strategy prevented the invaders from living off the country.In the bitterly cold Russian weather, thousands of French troops were ambushed and killed by Russian peasant. As Napoleon's forces retreated, the Russian peasant pursued the French troops killing and destroying everything in its path into Central and Western Europe and to the gates of Paris . In 1914 Russia entered World War I in response to Austria's declaration of war on Russia's ally Serbia, and fought across multiple fronts. The Russian army achieved such successes as the Brusilov Offensive in 1916, destroying the military of Austria Hungary completely. On 30 December 1922. became The Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic and The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) the largest socialist power in history. On 22 June 1941, Nazi Germany broke the non aggression treaty and invaded the Soviet Union with the largest and most powerful invasion force in human history,opening the largest theater of the Second World War. Subsequently the Germans were dealt major defeats in history first at the Battle of Stalingrad in the winter of 19421943, and then in the Battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943. Another German failure was the battle of Leningrad. Under Stalin's administration and the leadership of such prominent commanders as Georgy Zhukov and Konstantin Rokossovsky, Soviet forces conquered Berlin and part of Germany and called German Democratic Republic (GDR) also know as East Germany. In 4 October 1957 Russia conquered the space with Sputnik 1, was the first Earth orbiting artificial satellite and was the first in a series of satellites collectively known as the Sputnik program. Next the first man in space Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin on 12 April 1961 and the first woman Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova on 16 June 1963. In 1991 became the Russian Federation at beginning the Russian Federation and Boris Yeltsin not control the power dimension of Russia and caused structural problems especially with the population. On 31 December 1999 President Yeltsin resigned, handing the post to the recently appointed Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, who then won the 2000 presidential election. Putin's leadership return the power,order, stability, and progress to Russia has won him widespread popularity in Russia. Today The Russian Federation is a global superpower, is increasingly being seen as a world leader in its own right, Dmitry Medvedev was elected President, whilst Putin became Prime Minister.

Putin Says Arctic Belongs To Russia
 
00:44
Russian President Vladimir Putin told a gathering of Russia's ruling party members on Thursday (October 3) that the Arctic was inarguably a part of Russian territory and that Russia had plans to expand activity there. The Arctic is "...a part of the Russian Federation, which has been under our sovereignty throughout the past few centuries. And it will stay this way for the foreseeable future," Putin told United Russia party delegates. Putin said the country would reopen a Soviet-era military base there as part of a drive to make the northern coast a global shipping route and secure the region's vast energy resources. Two decades after abandoning it, Russia has sent 10 warships behind four nuclear-powered ice breakers to the base on the Novosibirsk Islands, a show of force as it resumes a permanent naval presence in the thawing region. Russia wants to tap into the region's vast mineral resources. Russian energy giant Gazprom's plans to begin oil production in the Arctic have raised the concerns of environmentalists who say an oil spill there could have catastrophic consequences for the environment.

EU energy commissioner and Russian energy minister hold presser

Russia is ready to restart natural gas supplies to Ukraine if Kiev pays off its debt, said Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak on Friday. Novak, who was speaking in Moscow at a joint news conference with EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger, said he hoped that Brussels would help Ukraine fulfil its obligations. "We expect that both the European Commission and the Ukrainian government will find resources and send finances for payment of the debt for consumed gas," Novak told the news conference. Oettinger said he expected a schedule of Ukraine's gas repayment to Russia to be established "in the coming weeks" and that Ukraine should comply with it. "Bills should be paid", he stressed. The EU Energy Commissioner also expressed concern about recent reports that Russian troops had allegedly been deployed in eastern Ukraine. "I think that the alleged invasion of Russian soldiers, troops and tanks doesn't breathe life into the spirit of Minsk (talks between Russia, Ukraine and EU on Ukraine crisis), but ruins it," Oettinger said. This week Minsk hosted trilateral talks between Russia, Ukraine and the EU, during which Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko held their first face-face meeting.

Russia: West trying to undermine Russia on energy & arms markets - Lavrov
 
02:38
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addressed State Duma deputies during a plenary meeting in the State Duma, in Moscow on Wednesday, on issues related to national security and the Syrian conflict. SOT, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): "President Putin came up with an initiative to create a wide ranging counter-terrorist front with a strong basis in international law overseen by the United Nations. In order to support this initiative, our Aerospace Forces, that were present in Syria at the request of the Syrian authorities, joined with the Syrian Army and militia to disrupt the plans of extremists to transform a strategically important region in the Middle East into a theatre of war. It took some time until our partners came to understand the severity of threats from Islamic State, Jabhat al-Nusra, and other [extremist groups] and the necessity of coordinating efforts. Nevertheless, some advances have been made in the development of practical work. Under the co-chairmanship of the US and Russia, the Support Syria Group was created; the UN Security Council made a decision to accept a complex plan to stop the shooting war [and] provide humanitarian access for people in need in blockaded territories. Moreover, [there was development] in the process of political regulation, without precedents, and without intervention from others." SOT, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): "Nobody should doubt that we can provide security for our country and our citizens in any conditions. We see continued attempts to pressure Russia, to unleash an anti-Russian campaign, to force us to abandon our fundamental moral approaches to the issues of world order. There are clear attempts to patch up transatlantic discipline and undermine Russian positions as a competitor for energy resources and on arms markets. We are not aiming to participate in a confrontation with either the US, or with NATO or with the European Union. It is obvious that confrontational habits and geopolitical games with zero results only constrain efforts to provide for stable global development, and generate crisis, as in Ukraine. We hope that the West realised the malignancy of indulging in [the support of] national-radicals and will strive towards a rigorous implementation of the Minsk agreements from February 12, 2015; from the Ukrainian side through direct dialogue between Ukrainian authorities with Donetsk and Lugansk. We are ready to cooperate towards achieving this aim, to help in creating the right conditions to resolve major problems in Ukraine."

Russia's Role in Asian Energy Markets

European sanctions have accelerated Russia’s political and economic push into Asia. At the center of Russia’s turn to Asia is energy: Moscow sees new markets in Asia as an alternative to stagnant, politically risky Europe, while Asian investment is crucial for Russia’s ability to tap new source of oil and gas. Despite the signing of a $400 billion gas deal with China in May, Russia’s ability to make good on its Asian energy ambitions remains uncertain. What are the prospects for Russia’s energy industry in Asia? What impact will Russian energy have on regional economics and geopolitics? Is Russia’s eastward turn a threat to U.S. and European interests?

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak spoke of the importance of a binding relationship with the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries over the future production of energy, during a press conference at the ASEAN-Russia summit in Sochi, Friday. SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "South-east Asia is one of the most significant regions for us and it is an integral part of the global energy landscape. In fact, according to the data of various experts and international energy agencies, today the energy consumption here is lower than the global average by half, but since 1990 until today the general consumption of energy in the ASEAN region has increased by more than two and a half times. We realise within all the forecasts that the main growth of global energy consumption will be in this particular region." SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "Today we supply oil and petroleum products to such countries as Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines. In prospect within bilateral cooperation we consider the possibility of supplies of energy resources to other countries." SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "As you know, during the bilateral meeting with Indonesia an agreement on the construction of a petroleum refinery in Indonesia together with Rosneft was reached." SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "Well, certainly, as for the cooperation on the construction of the refinery, it should be mutually beneficial. First of all, I am talking about of the use of Russian technologies being represented at this refinery. It is advantageous for the Russian Federation in terms of the export of Russian equipment and Russian technologies." SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "We expect that the potential these countries of the ASEAN region have, will be realised by our joint oil and gas and electricity companies via the exchange of experience and technologies. And we expect that certain agreements on the participation of ASEAN countries in the realisation of projects in Russia will also be reached."

Russia to increase LNG exports to Asia  NHK WORLD English
 
01:05
The deputy chairman of Russia's largest state-backed gas firm, Gazprom, says his company will increase its exports of liquefied natural gas to thriving Asian countries. Deputy Chairman Alexander Medvedev made the comment on Tuesday at the Sakhalin oil and gas conference in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. He said Asian gas markets such as China are rapidly growing and will catch up with Europe by 2030. He stressed that his company will expand its liquefied natural gas exports to Japan and other Asia-Pacific countries. Officials from Japanese gas firms and trading houses are taking part in the meeting. Senior Vice Foreign Minister Masaji Matsuyama said on behalf of the Japanese government that energy cooperation between Japan and Russia can enhance the steadily growing bilateral economic ties. He said Japan is interested in developing energy resources in Russia's Far East. Japan's natural gas imports from Russia have increased since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in 2011. They reached 9.5 percent of last year's total. An official of a Japanese oil development firm said he feels the expectations of the Russian side. He said his company is paying close attention to resource development in Sakhalin, a close neighbor of Japan where demand for oil and natural gas is growing.

Russian spy ring busted by FBI in New York
 
00:55
Originally published on 27 January, 2015 Three Russians have been charged with acting as agents of the SVR, the Russian foreign intelligence agency, in New York City, according to a statement published on the United States Department of Justice website.The three Russian nationals facing espionage charges are Evgeny Buryakov, aka “Zhenya,” who posed as an employee of a Russian bank in Manhattan, and Igor Sporyshev and Victor Podobnyy, who are protected from prosecution by diplomatic immunity because they officially worked for the Russian Federation.Federal investigators say Sporyshev, 40, and Podobnyy, 27, who are no longer in the U.S., were in charge of attempting to recruit New York residents as intelligence sources for Russia. Sporyshev and Podobnyy are accused of tasking Burakov, 39, who was arrested on Monday, to gather intelligence and transmitting his intelligence reports to Moscow. The FBI recorded more than 48 meetings among the three. Several involved Buryakov passing a bag, magazine or slip of paper to Sporyshev. The men are accused of gathering intelligence on potential U.S. sanctions against the Russian Federation and U.S. efforts to develop alternative energy resources.“This investigation is one of many that highlight the determined and prolific efforts by foreign governments to target Americans for the purposes of collecting intelligence and stealing secrets,” FBI Assistant Director Randall Coleman said in the Justice Department statement. “This case is especially egregious as it demonstrates the actions of a foreign intelligence service to integrate a covert intelligence agent into American society under the cover of an employee in the financial sector. Espionage is as pervasive today as it has even been, and FBI counterintelligence teams will continue to aggressively investigate and expose hostile foreign intelligence activities conducted on U.S. soil.” ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Marin Katusa: The Putinization of Resources - 4/23/14
 
17:37
This week, we speak with Marin Katusa, Chief Energy Strategist at Casey Research and an expert on many things including energy, resources, international real estate, and the topic of today's interview -- RUSSIA... Marin discusses the life experiences and forces that shaped Vladimir Putin into the leader he is today. Putin's grandfather was the personal aid and cook, not just for Lenin, but also Stalin. These stories were passed on to Putin, and upon receiving his law degree, Vladimir Putin became the head of the KGB in Eastern Germany. When the USSR fell apart, he came back to St. Petersburg. Putin then wrote his PhD thesis on the importance of consolidating the natural resource sector within Russia to be able to build and develop a platform for the other economies and technologies to grow within Russia. Fast forward 15 years, and Russia is now the largest producer of natural gas in the world, they are the largest producer of oil in the world, they are the largest producer of uranium resources in the world, they have the highest upgrading facilities for uranium in the world, they have about half of all the uranium resources in the world within their sphere of influence. The Putinization of natural resources has occurred. Marin discusses the uranium sector in particular, and how Russia is intelligently vertically integrating themselves into the entire supply chain in emerging countries. Russia produces more uranium on American soil today than all American firms combined. So rather than producing just the fuel, Putin is moving into countries like Saudia Arabia, Belaruse, and Sri Lanka, and providing a life supply of the uranium fuel, he is also lending the money to build the facilities and providing Russian expertise to construct the power plants. Due to American regulation, firms like General Electric can not do the same thing. Marin next touches on the overall uranium sector. He points out that the big key is Japan restarting its nuclear reactors, which should occur over the next 12-18 months. The next catalyst is in the United States, where Barack Obama has changed the rules to the Department of Energy. Historically the DOE has never sold more than 10% of the uranium it produces, compared to what it consumes. This is the first year that Obama has sold north of 15% into the spot market. The third thing that occurred in 2014, is that a nuclear reactor in California sold 10 million pounds of uranium into the spot market. These three points have helped to suppress the uranium price, with over 75% of all uranium transactions occurring in the spot market. Marin expects 2014 to 2015 to be the time when uranium will really start picking up. Marin believes that Russia is setting it up for the long term. Russia is buying more gold, signing contracts with new markets, working deals with China. Overall, Russia is positioning itself to become the fuel of future engines of the economies. Just like America did in the 60s and 70s, Russia will use that wealth to innovate. With a background in mathematics, Marin Katusa left teaching post-secondary mathematics to pursue portfolio management within the resource sector. He is regularly interviewed on national and local television channels in North America such as the Business News Network (BNN) and many other radio and newspaper outlets for his opinions and insights regarding the resource sector. Katusa is the chief investment strategist for the energy division of Casey Research. He is the editor of the Casey Energy Report, Casey Energy Confidential and Casey Energy Dividends newsletters. A regular part of his due diligence process for Casey Research includes property tours, which has resulted in him visiting hundreds of mining and energy producing and exploration projects all around the world.
