Policy Brief: Possible mechanisms to strengthen Ukraine's resilience in energy sector and Black Sea security issues

Oil and gas embargo may substantially affect Russia’s ability to fund war in Ukraine, since the Russian budget is dependent on energy exports. Every day Russian cruise missile destroy critical energy infrastructure in Ukraine and kill dozens of its citizens, so the most effective mechanism to strengthen Ukraine’s resilience in the energy sector is to force Russia stop the war.

Since February 24, 2021, Russia has been carrying out a full-scale military invasion in Ukraine. Not only military, but also industrial, energy, transport infrastructure is destroyed, the blockade from the sea is carried out. This sharply reduces the country's economic opportunities, isolates it from external support. This situation affects the ability to resist further, affects military and economic stability, especially in the coming autumn-winter period of 2022-2023.

The policy brief “Possible mechanisms to strengthen Ukraine's resilience in energy sector and Black Sea security issues,” has been written by the experts of the Centre for Global Studies Strategy XXI with the support of the European Endowment for Democracy (EED) within Project “Strengthened Ukraine's Resilience in the face of Russian Aggression with Quality Analysis and Advocacy”.
