Nuclear Force: Russia's energy grip on Ukraine

Report summary

Ukraine has found itself a pawn in a game of geopolitical chess between Russia and Europe since Victor Yanukovich turned down a European Union-backed trade deal triggering the current crisis. Thus far, the primary point of discussion has been natural gas and Ukraine’s role as a transit route. Analysis of the Ukrainian power sector though reveals a wider multi-fuel dependency and highlights another feature of the Euro-Russian energy interdependency in the nuclear sector.
