Europe speaks gas, Russia thinks oil?

The EU-Russia energy dialogue has been stalled for the past five years. This paper tries to explain some possible factors in Russian energy patterns that might explain low receptivity towards EU initiatives on the Russian side. The paper argues that Brussels should widen its scope of negotiations and focus less on natural gas issues. Putting more issues on the table might trigger some progress in relations.
