Energy Sanctions and Russia: What Comes Next?

Energy Sanctions and Russia: What Comes Next? Atlantic Council. Adnan Vatansever. September 10, 2015.

The West has responded to the Kremlin’s increasingly bellicose policy in the former Soviet space by imposing punitive measures against Russia’s energy sector. The immediate impact of such measures appears limited as neither oil nor gas flowing from Russia is expected to suffer right away. However, the sanctions’ long-term implications may prove more important. Vatansever argues that the sanctions could diminish Russia’s capacity to produce the same amount of oil and hamper a number of its gas objectives abroad. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
