“How Russia uses Gazprom as a weapon”


Russia continues to use energy – and specifically natural gas company Gazprom – as a tool to undermine the relationship between Ukraine and the European Union, writes Ukrainian foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin in a guest commentary in Handelsblatt. “More Gazprom doesn’t only mean more dependency. It means more corruption, more anti-EU parties with obscure financing, and more politicians that suddenly move into the supervisory boards of Russian companies at the end of their career,” writes Klimkin.
