The Transit Dimension of EU Energy Security

Chatham House, London

Russia and Eurasia Programme


Katja Yafimava, Research Fellow, Oxford Institute for Energy Studies; author, The Transit Dimension of EU Energy Security: Russian gas transit across Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova


Katja Yafimava's recent book is the first to provide an in-depth analysis of market, legal/regulatory, and energy security aspects of the transit of Russian gas across western CIS countries – Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova – to Europe. She will discuss why gas transit issues remain unresolved, why existing bilateral and multilateral frameworks failed in the past, and how the Energy Charter Treaty and the Energy Community Treaty may contribute towards increased security of transit in the future.
