Ukraine and new energy security strategy for Europe

The Ukrainian energy sector has vast potential in supporting European energy security. It has previously acted as a stable corridor between Europe and Russia, and its existing interconnection with a number of European countries and energy storage infrastructure – as well as its advantageous geographic position – can now be harnessed to benefit Europe. During the event, a policy paper by the British think tank, the Council on Geostrategy, will be presented that specifies exactly how Ukraine will be able to bolster European energy security.

Key issues to discuss:

  • The necessity of revising Europe’s energy security strategy in order to reduce the bloc’s reliance on Russian energy imports, and ideally phase them out all together.
  • How Ukraine will contribute to the diversification of energy sources for Europe and therefore strengthen European energy security.
  • The continued help that Ukraine needs now from international partners to minimise Russian gains and better enable Ukraine post-war Euro-Atlantic integration.
  • The international resources that need to be mobilised and joint initiatives launched to enable Ukraine to be a stable energy partner for Europe so that dependence on Russian oil and gas imports is curtailed as soon as possible.
