Policy Paper: România și securitatea energetică. Evoluția relațiilor cu Gazprom


English Abstract:

This paper is an analysis of Russia’s behavior and the interference of its Government in the security policies of Central and South-Eastern Europe. The main goal of the analysis was to determine the impact of Russian implications in the national security of Romania in the context of the development of economic relations between Romania – an EU and NATO member state with huge strategic importance for the Euro-Atlantic structures and Russia’s economic branches.

For a long time, Romania has had a touchy relationship with the Russian Federation, with Romanian’s high level of energy independence being a potential source of commercial disputes on the energy market. Russian authorities tried to limit this independence by entering into the Romanian energy market with companies controlled directly by Gazprom or within spheres of economic, banking, technological and cultural exchanges.
