Playing with Fire: Russia, Ukraine and the Geopolitics of Energy
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has rattled global energy markets. Disruptions to Europe’s gas supplies threaten to leave millions in the cold. The attack on nuclear facilities has underscored the risks associated with dependence on that energy source. Control over resources has long been an underlying cause of conflict. Will this latest crisis alter the map of energy geopolitics? Will the disruption of natural gas supplies to Europe give it the extra push it needs to decarbonize, or will some countries always be beholden to untrustworthy partners for the resources they need?
