From what was hailed by some analysts as an historic agreement to curb oil production and stabilize markets alongside OPEC, to growing tensions with the United States and new economic sanctions that will target its energy sector, to the protracted fight over the Nordstream-2 pipeline and questions about European energy security, Russia plays and important and changing role in the global energy sector.

Host Jason Bordoff sits down with Dr. Tatiana Mitrova, a fellow at the Center on Global Energy Policy, to discuss Russia and the global energy sector including topics such as:

  • Russia's compliance with OPEC oil production cuts and the future of the agreement
  • Gazprom's response to changes in the global gas market
  • The future of clean energy in Russia
  • European energy security and the Nordstream-2 pipeline.
