The hope is that it will address two of the EU’s weaknesses: its dependence on Russian gas and soaring energy costs in comparison to the United States. The European Commission will publish its proposals for energy union at the end of the month, but energy remains politically sensitive.

From Russia’s perspective, all ongoing climate changes “pave the way” for the development of shipping and profitable exploitation of energy resources in the Arctic region.

Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport BAKU - For many, Vladimir Putin is a strong decisive leader. An example to be emulated. Sometimes he seems nearly untouchable. Yet, strong leaders leave behind big shoes to fill. Currently, no one in Russia is qualified to replace Putin. In fact, the President himself may no longer be up to the challenge. Russian politics is often compared to a dogfight under a carpet. An outsider only hears the growling and when only one dog comes from beneath it’s obvious who won. At the moment, that’s exactly what’s happening in Russia. There is no mention of this in the mainstream media, but for the past few years, the elites have been in a rigorous power play. With the low energy prices and Western sanctions, resources are shrinking. The oligarchs and regional officials are fighting for scraps of power. Putin may be a brilliant politician but the Russia he has created is the new Sick Man of Europe.

Russia not only has some of the world’s largest energy reserves, but also impressive potential for making its economy more energy efficient and competitive. Ending wasteful use of energy resources would bring Russia financial benefits and decrease carbon dioxide emissions.

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

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.

HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT RUSSIA . #RUSSIA #RUSSIAFACTS #RUSSIALIFESTYLE Russia (Russian: Росси́я, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə]), officially the Russian Federation (Russian: Росси́йская Федера́ция, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈratsɨjə]), is a country in Eurasia. At 17,125,200 square kilometres (6,612,100 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world by area, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area, and the ninth most populous, with over 144 million people as of December 2017, excluding Crimea. 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. The Soviet Union played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II, 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. 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. 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. Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources are the largest such reserves in the world, making it one of the leading producers of oil and natural gas globally. The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. 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, 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.

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.

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 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."

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.

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.

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.

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?

This video shows you that Bad News: U.S. Military Sites in Europe Are Dependent on Russia for Electricity. Support Us: Army Bag: https://amzn.to/2v9IP4J Army T-Shart: https://amzn.to/2mPwFdF Army Boots: https://amzn.to/2LO7k1w As the Nord Stream II pipeline is beginning construction in the Baltic Sea, President Donald Trump [email protected] that Germany has become “captive to Russia.” Representatives in Congress are also worried about European dependence on Russian energy. To ensure stable operation of critical sites, especially military assets abroad, backup power solutions should be an imperative. In the first quarter of this year, Russian pipelines supplied 41% of Europe’s gas. Russian natural gas is cheaper for much of Europe because it does not need to undergo the liquification process. Countries that ship gas long distances have to transform it into liquefied natural gas (LNG) by cooling it to -260 degrees Fahrenheit. This shrinks the gas’ volume, making it easier to store and ship. When LNG reaches its destination, it is changed back to a gas and piped to homes and businesses to generate electricity. Many policymakers find European dependence on Russian gas concerning. In fact, a letter was recently sent to Secretary of Defense James Mattis from Senator Pat Toomey and other representatives highlighting the importance of lessening the dependence on Russian energy for the U.S. Armed Forces in Europe. Some consider American LNG to be more reliable and promote U.S. energy exports as a replacement for Nord Stream 2. Ramstein Air Base in southwestern Germany is a large and strategic American defense transport facility with 56,000 American troops. The base serves as headquarters for the U.S. Air Forces in Europe, Air Forces Africa and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Allied Air Command. According to the Defense Logistics Agency, nearly 40% of oil used at military sites in Germany is from Russia. Thus, American defense installations in Europe are dependent on Russian energy to operate. If Russia were to hold its energy supply hostage, as it already has done to Ukraine in 2006 and 2008, not only would Germany’s power grid struggle to provide electricity to its citizens, but American installations and operations would also be compromised. The Nord Stream II pipeline, in essence, boosts Moscow’s geopolitical strength and doubles the European Union’s reliance on Russian energy. Funds from selling gas also provide Russia with more resources to accomplish hostile goals, such as the recent annexation of Crimea and the cyber campaign on the U.S. electric grid. Increased energy dependence on Russia could also be used as leverage to extort the European Union and drive a wedge between NATO allies.

Fotyga leaving STORYLINE: Poland vetoed a European Union plan on Monday to open talks with Russia aimed at broadening cooperation, especially in energy, saying Moscow should first end a ban on imports of Polish meat and plants. The Polish move prevented the EU foreign ministers from finalising the bloc's negotiating position for an economic cooperation deal with Russia to replace a far less ambitious 1997 accord. It was hoped talks could begin at a November 24 meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. But Polish Foreign Minister Anna Fotyga said Russia's ban on Polish imports violated its current cooperation accord with the EU and that in energy trade Moscow threatened Poland's "overall energy security." Fotyga told reporters at a media conference in Brussels that Poland was not willing to back off without a clear political signal from Russia that the import ban would be lifted and that Moscow would commit to fair trade in energy under the next cooperation deal with the EU. She said she was "not confident" this could be achieved by November 24, but EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner said the Helsinki meeting with Putin that day remained on the agenda. Speaking of the Russian ban on Polish imports of meat and plant products for health reasons, Ferrero-Waldner said the EU was "fully aware of the difficulties Poland is experiencing" and that they sympathised. EU food safety experts will soon visit Poland to certify again that Polish meat and plant exports are safe. Poland's relations with Russia have soured in recent years. Moscow alleges that Polish meat and plant products are substandard. In turn, Poland accuses Moscow of violating fair trade rules in its supply of Russian gas and oil and not guaranteeing free transit of energy from countries such as Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Increasingly dependent on Russian gas and oil imports, the EU wants Putin to ratify an international energy charter that would make it easier for foreign companies to invest in Russia's energy sector and provide legal guarantees for investors. In effect since 1998, the charter has been signed by more than 50 countries, including Russia. But Moscow is dragging its heels in ratifying it. Putin's reluctance is seen by many as an attempt to guard Russian energy resources for domestic companies while keeping foreign rivals out.

Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia. 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. 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. 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, beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium. 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. 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. 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, which played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II. 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. The Russian economy ranks as the eighth largest by nominal GDP and fifth largest by purchasing power parity. Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources, the largest reserves in the world, have made it one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas globally. The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. 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.

Interview with Martynas Nagevičius, President of the Lithuanian Renewable Energy Confederation. On Monday, December 15, 2014, the Heinrich Boell Foundation in Washington DC invited 3 representatives from Baltic renewable energy associations to discuss the potential for renewable energy to play a greater role in Europe’s energy security. During the past year the transatlantic community has revisited the subject of Europe’s energy security with renewed urgency. Russian aggression since the Ukraine crisis has again underscored the need for Europe to achieve energy independence by diversifying its energy supply. However, the debate about the new geopolitics of European energy security largely overlooks the potential for investing in renewable energy and energy efficiency in Eastern Europe. The foundation wants to focus attention on efforts underway in the eastern EU Member States to diversify energy supplies away from not only Russian energy sources, but from fossil fuels in general. Martynas Nagevičius is the president of the Lithuanian Renewable Energy Confederation, an umbrella organization for associations dealing in different renewable energy resources – biomass, wind, solar, hydro, biogas, and geothermal. He also works as an advisor to the mayor of Vilnius (capital city of Lithuania) on energy issues, as well as an independent consultant in the fields of renewable energy development, energy efficiency and strategic energy planning. Martynas is recognized as the “face” of renewable energy locally in Lithuania and he has published dozens of energy related articles in the Lithuanian press. He actively participates in different working groups related to energy issues in the Ministry of Energy in Lithuania, as well as for the Government of Lithuania.

Moscow and Beijing failed to agree on a major energy deal. But an assistant professor of economics at City University in Hong Kong believes the two economies will only benefit from the mutual co-operation. "These economies are highly complementary to each other," Dr. Baozhi Qu.told RT. "For instance, China has a big market, China has a great energy demand, and also China is growing fast. On the other hand, Russia has a big land size very rich in energy and mineral resources. Russia needs China as a big market, as a consumer. So, fundamentally speaking, both countries can be complementary to each other and can play a positive role in the global recovery." "Russia used to depend on the European market as the buyers of its oil and gas," Qu elaborated. "But we all know that the European market doesn't look very bright, at least for now. Russia needs to diversify in terms of getting its oil and gas and other energy resources sold. If Russia can have a more balanced model between Europe and East Asia, which is the most rapidly-developing region in the world, this would be beneficial for Russia in the long run. And this will be good for China too. China also wants to diversify its supply of energy sources. For instance, it used to depend heavily on the Middle East. But we all know about the recent disturbances there. So China is hungry for the new energy source. Certainly, if this deal is reached and China can buy a large amount of gas from Russia, it can get a stable and long-term reliable energy resources, so that is certainly beneficial for China." Commenting the failure of the two countries to reach a gas deal, Dr. Baozhi Qu believes that sooner or later the contract will be signed. "Gas talks are a big deal and a lot of money is involved, so, you can imagine the negotiations will be tough. There are a lot of terms which need to be determined and negotiated. It takes time," he said.

SOUNDBITE (Georgian) Voxpop, Kakha Gvaramia: "It is horrible that the gas supply might be cut off. Especially if in January there are freezing temperatures, in this case I don't know what we will do." 11. Various of city STORYLINE : Georgia has agreed to more than double what it pays for natural gas from Russia, according to Russian energy giant OAO Gazprom, in a deal that could potentially threaten its fragile economy. Alexander Medvedev, the head of Gazprom's export division, told reporters in Moscow that Gazprom had signed three contracts to supply Georgia with natural gas at US$235 (per 1,000 cubic metres next year. Georgian officials have given no comment on the contracts with Gazprom, which is Russia's state-controlled natural gas monopoly. Earlier, Georgia's prime minister had insisted that neighbouring Azerbaijan would be the country's main supplier next year. Three Georgian companies will receive 1.1 (b) billion cubic meters of gas next year under the new agreement, an amount that falls about 700 (m) million cubic metres short of the country's expected demand for 2007. "They (the Georgians) have to establish themselves how much gas they need and how they will deal with their finances in the current situation," Medvedev told reporters. Relations between Russia and its small Caucasus neighbour deteriorated sharply after Georgia briefly detained four Russian military officers on spying charges earlier this year. Moscow retaliated with an economic and transport blockade and a crackdown on Georgian migrants. Currently, Georgia pays 110 US dollars per 1,000 cubic metres and had long balked at the higher gas price, accusing Russia of "political blackmail" and of using its vast energy resources to punish the former Soviet republic's Western-leading policies. Earlier this week Gazprom had threatened to cut off supplies if the new price was not accepted. Facing the prospect of either sharply higher prices for Russian gas or even a full cut-off, Georgian officials have sought a deal with Azerbaijan, an energy-rich ex-Soviet republic. Georgian Prime Minister Zurab Nogaideli told a briefing in Tbilisi earlier on Friday that Azerbaijan would be the country's main supplier of gas next year. Meanwhile, on the streets of Georgia's capital, Tbilisi people questioned the stability of their gas supply.

During the session of the UN General Assembly - the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced the start of deliveries of S-300 air defense missile systems to Syria. According to him, the first S-300s have already arrived in Syria shortly after President Vladimir Putin announced it. Such measures are being taken in order to ensure 100% safety of the Russian contingent. In addition, Sergei Lavrov noted that the Russian Defense Ministry provided the foreign partners with precise details of what happened with the IL-20 aircraft, since it was the reason of the deliveries of S-300s to Syria. The US Secretary of the Internal affairs, Ryan Zinke, announced the possibility of a naval blockade of Russia aimed to stop Moscow's control over the supplies of energy resources of the Middle East. "The United States can guarantee the openness of sea routes thanks to the Navy. If necessary, the Navy can also block the sea routes so that Russian energy supplies do not enter the market" - Ryan Zinke said during his speech in Pittsburgh. One might assume that he is sure that Russian activity in the Middle East is connected with the desire of Kremlin to supply the energy resources in the region, as it is now happening in Europe. According to Ryan Zinke - supply of oil and gas is, supposedly, the only source of income for the Russian economy. Ryan Zinke also noted the similarity of the Iranian and Russian situations. He explained that there is a military option for this issue, which he'd prefer to not use, and also an economic one - to exert pressure, and force the competitor's energy resources out from the market. "We are able to do so because the US are the largest producer of oil and gas" - US Secretary of the Internal affairs concluded Today the Republic of Macedonia began a nationwide referendum on the matter of renaming of the country, according to the representatives of the State Election Commission. The advisory referendum will end at 8 pm Moscow time. For the success of it - the turnout of more than 50% of voters is necessary. At the referendum itself - the population will have to answer the question of whether they agree to accept the agreement between Macedonia and Greece, and whether they support Macedonian accession to the European Union and NATO. For more than 25 years the Greek authorities demanded their northern neighbors to change the name of their country since Greece has the same historical and administrative area. On 17th June, 2018, this dispute was concluded by signing an international treaty, according to which the Republic of Macedonia agreed to rename itself. The main option for the new name at the moment is "Northern Macedonia". The adoption of the treaty with Greece opens the door to the EU and NATO. Previously, Athens blocked any talks on pan-European integration with Macedonia until this country changes its name. Hungarian Foreign Minister, Peter Siyarto, was put into the database of the Ukrainian website "Peacemaker". The reasons for it are the following: "an attempt on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine", "inciting and supporting separatist sentiments" and "participation in the organization of provocations". During Wednesday Peter Siyarto told to the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Pavel Klimkin, that Petro Poroshenko supports the hatred towards Hungarians. In turn, Pavel Klimkin spoke about the lack of achievements on all key issues with Hungary. Before that, he reacted extremely negatively to the issue of Hungarian passports to Ukrainians in the border town of Berehove. Previously, Peter Siyarto was puzzled by the decision of Kiev to move Ukrainian troops in Transcarpathia. He said that the relocation of troops to the borders of a NATO country is "rather unusual."

Facing a cold shoulder from Europe and increased competition at home, Russia's Gazprom has struggled to assert dominance on the global energy market, prompting speculation the energy giant could have no choice but to splinter. With the Russian economy slipping into recession on the back of lower oil prices and Western sanctions over Ukraine, the economy ministry predicted Gazprom would produce 414 billion cubic metres of gas this year, an all-time low for the public company sitting atop some of the world's largest natural gas reserves. Gazprom's market capitalisation has plummeted in recent years. Prior to the 2008 financial crisis, the company was worth more than $300 billion. Its value now hovers around $50 billion, trailing far behind the world's other major energy companies. "Gazprom is confronted with the greatest challenge in its history," Chris Weafer, a partner at the Macro Advisory consultancy firm, told AFP. "What remains to be seen is whether Gazprom becomes an appendage of the foreign ministry or evolves into a global energy company." The decline in Gazprom's value and gas production coincides with mounting tensions with the European Union, which has accused it of catering to Moscow's geopolitical interests instead of operating according to business principles. The gas giant struck a $400 billion natural-gas deal with China last year, an agreement that was heralded as the symbol of Russia's pivot to Asia. Moscow and Beijing have since agreed on Russia supplying natural gas to western China. But Western sanctions imposed on Moscow over the Ukraine crisis have undermined Gazprom's attempts to turn away from Europe, its traditional market. Washington's ban on technology transfers to Russia for certain energy projects, including Gazprom's Yuzhnoye Kirinskoye field in the far eastern Okhotsk Sea, is stifling Moscow's ambitions on the Asian market. Gazprom was set to use the field to develop its liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity and, according to some reports, exchange assets with Anglo-Dutch company Shell. Without US technology, experts fear that Russia will not be able to exploit the field's resources. "This is bad news for Russia because the production of LNG is a strategic objective in the region," said Valery Nesterov, an analyst at Sberbank Investment CIB. The Ukraine conflict, which has propelled Russia's relations with the West to their post-Soviet nadir, has meanwhile exacerbated Europe's desire to dissociate from Gazprom. The company, however, has reiterated that Russian energy resources remain the most accessible to fulfil Europe's growing demand for gas. Gazprom's exports to Europe, which are expected to rise this year, still provide the company with hefty revenues in spite of lower energy prices. After the EU blocked Russia's South Stream gas pipeline project -- which would have brought Russian gas to western Europe via the Black Sea -- Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the country would work on a new pipeline, the TurkStream, which would run through Turkey. Gazprom is eager to complete the TurkStream pipeline to bypass Ukraine in its gas shipments, but its construction, which was scheduled to start in June, has been delayed. Experts said it is unlikely that Ankara will make any decisions on the project until after upcoming general elections. According to Mikhail Korchemkin, the director of the East European Gas Analysis firm, there are "next to zero" chances that the pipeline will be completed. Critics have said Gazprom has been slow to react to the ever-changing gas market, clinging to lengthy contracts pegged to fluctuating oil prices. Analysts have claimed that Gazprom could benefit from dividing its mammoth structure into smaller entities that would be more efficient and transparent. Russian media has reported that Igor Sechin, the influential head of Russian oil giant Rosneft, has asked the government to open up gas exports to competition and to split Gazprom in two, separating energy production and transportation. "I'm not sure Gazprom survives this difficult period," said analyst Korchemkin. "It would be easier for its development if it split into pieces within a couple of years."

Trailer video for political thriller CORRUPTION OF POWER, #1 in Amazon International Mystery & Crime chart. Synopsis: Ukraine is only the opening gambit, so far as the Russian President is concerned. With his sights set on territorial expansion and undeterred by the prospect of a new Cold War, he intends first to shift Russia’s economic focus towards the East in order to shield the country from the reprisals that his next move is sure to provoke. The President delegates to his Prime Minister the redeployment of Russia's vast energy resources, a vital component of his strategy. But when plans for a pipeline to run through Turkmenistan and Afghanistan tilt off-course, it threatens to spread the current conflagration in the Middle East right up to Russia’s own borders. Against a background of political corruption, state-sponsored terrorism and increased Taliban insurgency, the President turns to independent troubleshooter ALEX LEKSIN whose investigations take him from Moscow into one of the world's most sinister countries, right at the heart of Central Asia. Initially his enquiries reveal nothing to cause alarm. Other factors, though, suggest otherwise: wherever Leksin goes, someone tries to kill him; people in a position to help him are assassinated; and information turns out to be misinformation. And when at last he discovers the truth, he finds himself unsure of whom he can trust as the stakes get frighteningly higher.

Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia. 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 US 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. Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of 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. 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, beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium. 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. 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. 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, which played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II. 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. The Russian economy ranking as the eighth largest by nominal GDP and sixth largest by purchasing power parity. Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources, the largest reserves in the world, have made it one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas globally. The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. 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.

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.
