The subject of the thesis is about EU-Russia relations. I am really interested in knowing what the key points are and the challenges of their relations is a very difficult one: that is the energy challenge.
The energy challenge is indeed one of the greatest tests for Europe. Unlike the financial crisis, it could take decades to put our energy system onto a new, more sustainable and secure path. We need urgent and ambitious decisions today to prepare our society for a low-carbon, efficient and democratic energy future.
The problematic aspects of European dependence on Russian energy became especially obvious during the Ukrainian gas crisis, and it was reconfirmed by Russian energy diplomacy against Belarus, Georgia, and Lithuania. These developments have clearly showed that Russia uses its energy leverage as an active component of its foreign policy and the EU is quite vulnerable to the Russian gas policies. In order to overcome these vulnerabilities, the EU has to diversify its energy resources.
All indeed recognise that the right level of intervention is at least the European Union. The challenges facing us are too overwhelming to be resolved by one Member State. The unpredictability of energy security, the volatility in energy prices and the delays in new technology and infrastructure investments call for decisive action.

[...] Recognizing the tremendous potential of basement in Russia, Europe saw the arrival of a liberal Russia as the beginning of a peaceful trade relationship with its larger neighbour. For this, we must find a common framework in which to insert the energy challenge. By June 1990, the Dutch Prime Minister Ruud Lubbers presented his idea of the Energy Charter. This charter would ensure the free flow of energy supplies in the new Europe which is prepared following the Soviet collapse. [...]
[...] Is it a tool for liberation from the Russian energy tutelage? With the coloured revolutions of 2003‐2004, Russia stiffened and decides to use its powerful weapon of the moment: energy. It therefore calls on pro‐Western countries to pay the market price rather than the price of brother nations. While Westerners see it as blackmail73, Gazprom reduced its supplies because they have reached an agreement with Naftogaz on the new gas tariff. While Russia had taken the presidency of the G8 on the same day as the theme to security of energy supply, Europe wakes up with a hangover with a 25% drop in pressure in gas pipelines. [...]
[...] This pipeline will provide energy security of Germany and northern Europe as a result. The pipeline starts from Vyborg in Portovaya Bay, Gulf of Finland km from St Petersburg, it passes under the Baltic Sea and resurfaced in Germany, in Greifswald. Finland, Sweden, and Great Britain and other European countries will be supplied via branches. The length of the route is 1,189 km and the tube is 1067 mm in diameter. The first weld and the opening ceremony took place on December The NEGP will be operational by 2010. [...]
[...] The choice to assign the post of Director General to Miller is a strong gesture since he was previously Deputy Minister of Energy, but the redesign does not stop there. On June Dmitry Medvedev, head of the presidential administration, was bombed at the head of the board of 41 directors of the company. He is also a faithful among the faithful of the Russian leader. The lawyer is native from St. Petersburg, like Miller, and passed by the city hall of the former imperial capital, where he worked with Vladimir Putin. [...]
