Adam Stulberg, professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, had his policy memo “Escaping the Energy Sanctions Tangle: Gas Networks & Off-Ramps from Escalation in U.S.-E.U.-Russia Relations” published by PONARS Eurasia.

In the policy memo, Stulberg explores the U.S. and E.U. sanctions on Russia. These sanctions are intended to punish the Kremlin for mobilizing in Crimea, not fully implementing the Minsk II accords and for its intrusion in foreign elections. Instead, oil prices are increasing, which shows that the Russian economy is stabilizing, and there is a widening internal division among American and European energy stakeholders in Russia.

To maintain relations with Russia, all parties must accept that sanctions will not be lifted and work together to de-escalate future tensions. They also need to realize that the regional gas landscaping is changing because of the interconnection of liquefied natural gas (LNG). When all parties recognize the importance of easing tensions, it will make it easier to commercially engage. 

Professor Stulberg is the Neal Family Chair Professor, associate chair for Research and co-director of the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy (CISTP) in the Nunn School. He teaches courses on energy and international security; international security; Russia/Eurasian politics and security; and international security policy. His research interests include energy, weapons and security, emerging technology and security, and national security.
