Débats Séminaires et tables rondes

The high prices of oil and gas during the 2000s allowed for a return to economic growth in Russia, the stabilisation of the political regime and the funding of the Kremlin's power politics. Over the past several years, the energy landscape has been deeply transformed: lower prices, diversification of European energy supplies, competition with LNG on the European market, boom of renewable energies, on a background of tensions with the West (sanctions). Russia thus has many challenges to face in order to adapt to this new environment and to preserve its market shares while guaranteeing the financing of the state budget and the beneficiaries of the rent.
