Cheap Gas for Russia’s Friends?
Facts Instead of Theories: A Response

Roland Götz

Deutsche Fassung


A trio of Polish authors is claiming that Gazprom, Russia’s natural gas giant, is an instrument of Kremlin foreign policy. The scant “evidence” presented does not stand up to scrutiny. The price that individual states pay depends on the market, not servility to Moscow.
