With fuel and energy costs on the rise, the hunger for power resources is gathering pace. It has even sparked an unexpected revival in one British mining town. Russia is spending millions of dollars re-opening old coal mines in South Yorkshire. As Mark Seddon reports, the Russian roubles are also helping to rebuild a once proud coal community.

Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia. It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the U.S. state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012. Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Eastern Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. The nation's history began with that of the East Slavs, who emerged as a recognizable group in Europe between the 3rd and 8th centuries AD. Founded and ruled by a Varangian warrior elite and their descendants, the medieval state of Rus arose in the 9th century. In 988 it adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire, beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium. Rus' ultimately disintegrated into a number of smaller states; most of the Rus' lands were overrun by the Mongol invasion and became tributaries of the nomadic Golden Horde. The Grand Duchy of Moscow gradually reunified the surrounding Russian principalities, achieved independence from the Golden Horde, and came to dominate the cultural and political legacy of Kievan Rus'. By the 18th century, the nation had greatly expanded through conquest, annexation, and exploration to become the Russian Empire, which was the third largest empire in history, stretching from Poland in Europe to Alaska in North America. Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Soviet Union, the world's first constitutionally socialist state and a recognized superpower, which played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II. The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first spacecraft, and the first astronaut. The Russian Federation became the successor state of the Russian SFSR following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, and is recognized as the continuing legal personality of the All-Union state. The Russian economy ranks as the eighth largest by nominal GDP and fifth largest by purchasing power parity. Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources, the largest reserves in the world, have made it one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas globally. The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. Russia is a great power and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, a member of the G8, G20, the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Eurasian Economic Community, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and is the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport BAKU - For many, Vladimir Putin is a strong decisive leader. An example to be emulated. Sometimes he seems nearly untouchable. Yet, strong leaders leave behind big shoes to fill. Currently, no one in Russia is qualified to replace Putin. In fact, the President himself may no longer be up to the challenge. Russian politics is often compared to a dogfight under a carpet. An outsider only hears the growling and when only one dog comes from beneath it’s obvious who won. At the moment, that’s exactly what’s happening in Russia. There is no mention of this in the mainstream media, but for the past few years, the elites have been in a rigorous power play. With the low energy prices and Western sanctions, resources are shrinking. The oligarchs and regional officials are fighting for scraps of power. Putin may be a brilliant politician but the Russia he has created is the new Sick Man of Europe.

European sanctions have accelerated Russia’s political and economic push into Asia. At the center of Russia’s turn to Asia is energy: Moscow sees new markets in Asia as an alternative to stagnant, politically risky Europe, while Asian investment is crucial for Russia’s ability to tap new source of oil and gas. Despite the signing of a $400 billion gas deal with China in May, Russia’s ability to make good on its Asian energy ambitions remains uncertain. What are the prospects for Russia’s energy industry in Asia? What impact will Russian energy have on regional economics and geopolitics? Is Russia’s eastward turn a threat to U.S. and European interests?

Russias enormous energy resources have generated a large profit as well as a bargaining chip in its relationship with Europe. Europe gets roughly 40 percent of its natural gas and over one-third of its oil from Russia. Journalist, author and longtime Russia-watcher Steve LeVine joins the Council to discuss Russias energy policies and how Europe and the West plan to respond to their reliance on Russian energy. How did the Russia-Ukraine natural gas disputes in 2005-2006 and 2009 impact European security and cohesion? How do the fluctuating energy prices affect the Russian economy and stability? Is Russia using its position as energy supplier as a way to send political messages and extract concessions from its allies and opponents?

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addressed State Duma deputies during a plenary meeting in the State Duma, in Moscow on Wednesday, on issues related to national security and the Syrian conflict. SOT, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): "President Putin came up with an initiative to create a wide ranging counter-terrorist front with a strong basis in international law overseen by the United Nations. In order to support this initiative, our Aerospace Forces, that were present in Syria at the request of the Syrian authorities, joined with the Syrian Army and militia to disrupt the plans of extremists to transform a strategically important region in the Middle East into a theatre of war. It took some time until our partners came to understand the severity of threats from Islamic State, Jabhat al-Nusra, and other [extremist groups] and the necessity of coordinating efforts. Nevertheless, some advances have been made in the development of practical work. Under the co-chairmanship of the US and Russia, the Support Syria Group was created; the UN Security Council made a decision to accept a complex plan to stop the shooting war [and] provide humanitarian access for people in need in blockaded territories. Moreover, [there was development] in the process of political regulation, without precedents, and without intervention from others." SOT, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): "Nobody should doubt that we can provide security for our country and our citizens in any conditions. We see continued attempts to pressure Russia, to unleash an anti-Russian campaign, to force us to abandon our fundamental moral approaches to the issues of world order. There are clear attempts to patch up transatlantic discipline and undermine Russian positions as a competitor for energy resources and on arms markets. We are not aiming to participate in a confrontation with either the US, or with NATO or with the European Union. It is obvious that confrontational habits and geopolitical games with zero results only constrain efforts to provide for stable global development, and generate crisis, as in Ukraine. We hope that the West realised the malignancy of indulging in [the support of] national-radicals and will strive towards a rigorous implementation of the Minsk agreements from February 12, 2015; from the Ukrainian side through direct dialogue between Ukrainian authorities with Donetsk and Lugansk. We are ready to cooperate towards achieving this aim, to help in creating the right conditions to resolve major problems in Ukraine."

02-18-2009 Russia, China sign $25 billion energy deal Beijing signed a deal with Moscow Tuesday to lend $25 billion to two Russian oil firms, which in turn will sell 15 million tons of crude oil a year to China for the next 20 years. The agreement will ensure the long-awaited extension of Russia's Siberia-Pacific coast pipeline to China, too. The pipeline project, agreed on late last year, will see the extension of the pipeline from the Siberian city of Skovorodino, 70 km north of the Sino-Russian border, to China. China will lend $15 billion to Russia's state-owned oil firm Rosneft and $10 billion to pipeline monopoly Transneft. China Development Bank (CDB) provided the credit for the deal, according to the Associated Press (AP). The Russian firms, on the other hand, will ensure China gets 300,000 barrels of crude a day for 20 years. China and Russia signed seven agreements on energy cooperation package programs, Xinhua said, quoting a Foreign Ministry official. The $25-billion deal is seen as a boost to Russian energy firms because the global financial crisis and a drastic drop in the crude prices have left them struggling to raise capital, AP said. The agreement was signed by Vice-Premier Wang Qishan and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin in Beijing at the third round of energy talks between the two countries. "We hope the two sides will give full play to the bilateral energy negotiation mechanism to promote bilateral energy cooperation," Wang told Sechin. Sechin replied that the two countries should intensify cooperation in fields such as energy and finance, and make joint efforts to guarantee that the agreed projects are implemented on time. A memorandum of cooperation in the energy sector signed in Moscow in October said Transneft and Rosneft could get loans from China in exchange for long-term oil sales to Beijing. But the talks were suspended on November 12 because of divergence of views on lending rates and loan guarantees, industry insiders said. Russia, the largest oil exporter after Saudi Arabia, is seeking to shift its exports focus from the West, and eyeing China as the main new market. Last year, trade between Russia and China increased 18 percent to $56.8 billion. And Premier Wen placed cooperation in resources development on top of his five proposals on economic cooperation when he visited Russia last year. The two countries have agreed to work jointly in oil production and processing, natural gas production and in chemical industries. They have agreed to expand cooperation in nuclear energy, too, including the construction of nuclear power plant in Tianwan, Jiangsu province, uranium mining, and post-processing of spent fuel.

The European Commission’s vice president says Europe needs to look for new energy sources after Russia’s abrupt decision to cancel the multi-billion-dollar South Stream gas pipeline project. Kristalina Georgieva said the Russian decision shows the necessity of diverse energy sources for Europe. But she also added that Brussels will continue internal talks to resolve the problems which Moscow says led to the collapse of the project. During his visit to Turkey on Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the project is shelved. South Stream was supposed to supply gas to southern Europe. The project was seen as a rival to Nabucco pipeline project. Nabucco was meant to reduce European dependence on Russian energy resources.

But for some reason we are trading energy resources in dollars.” “So, I believe we should think about switching at least to euro as the currency which is more common both for Russians and for the Europeans,” he said. The minister also said the US-China trade war has had “a big impact on the global economy” in 2018 in comparison to the previous year.

Originally published on 27 January, 2015 Three Russians have been charged with acting as agents of the SVR, the Russian foreign intelligence agency, in New York City, according to a statement published on the United States Department of Justice website.The three Russian nationals facing espionage charges are Evgeny Buryakov, aka “Zhenya,” who posed as an employee of a Russian bank in Manhattan, and Igor Sporyshev and Victor Podobnyy, who are protected from prosecution by diplomatic immunity because they officially worked for the Russian Federation.Federal investigators say Sporyshev, 40, and Podobnyy, 27, who are no longer in the U.S., were in charge of attempting to recruit New York residents as intelligence sources for Russia. Sporyshev and Podobnyy are accused of tasking Burakov, 39, who was arrested on Monday, to gather intelligence and transmitting his intelligence reports to Moscow. The FBI recorded more than 48 meetings among the three. Several involved Buryakov passing a bag, magazine or slip of paper to Sporyshev. The men are accused of gathering intelligence on potential U.S. sanctions against the Russian Federation and U.S. efforts to develop alternative energy resources.“This investigation is one of many that highlight the determined and prolific efforts by foreign governments to target Americans for the purposes of collecting intelligence and stealing secrets,” FBI Assistant Director Randall Coleman said in the Justice Department statement. “This case is especially egregious as it demonstrates the actions of a foreign intelligence service to integrate a covert intelligence agent into American society under the cover of an employee in the financial sector. Espionage is as pervasive today as it has even been, and FBI counterintelligence teams will continue to aggressively investigate and expose hostile foreign intelligence activities conducted on U.S. soil.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Wide of Putin and Nazarbayev at press conference 20. Cutaway media 21. People leaving at end of press conference STORYLINE: Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan signed an agreement on Thursday to build a natural gas pipeline along the Caspian Sea coast that would strengthen Moscow's monopoly on energy exports from the resource-rich region. But the plan also delivers a strong blow to Western hopes of securing alternate energy export routes. The pipeline provoked concern among energy analysts in Western Europe, which assiduously courted Turkmenistan to ship some of its vast natural gas reserves under the Caspian Sea, bypassing Russia. Turkmenistan, which has the second-largest gas reserves in the former Soviet Union, sends all its gas exports via Russia and the new agreement is likely to increase Russia's economic and political muscle in the country. The deal, which follows a preliminary agreement reached in May, ended months of tense arguments over the price of gas supplies. ""The creation of a new energy artery will enable long-term large-scale delivery of gas to our partners, and will become a substantial new contribution to the strengthening of energy security for Europe," Russia's President Vladimir Putin said. The agreement was signed after Putin's talks in the Kremlin with President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan and their conference call with Turkmen President Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov. Following months of disputes over the gas price, Russia's state-controlled monopoly OAO Gazprom gave in to Turkmen price demands last month and agreed to pay 130 dollars per 1,000 cubic metres of natural gas in the first half of 2008 and 150 dollars in the second half. The new pipeline deal will be disappointing for the United States and the European Union, which have been lobbying for a rival pipeline to be built under the Caspian Sea, bypassing Russia. Adding to the West's grievances, Nazarbayev also said after the talks that Kazakhstan would increase oil exports to Russia. However, prospects for pipelines under the Caspian have been clouded by high costs, environmental concerns and disputes over ownership of the sea resources.

http://www.youtube.com/user/PowerRossiya RUSSIA - At 17,075,400 square kilometres, Russia is by far the largest country in the world, covering more than a ninth of the Earth's land area. Russia is also the number one most populous nation in Europe and ninth most populous nation in the world. Russia has the world's largest reserves of mineral and energy resources,and is considered an global superpower. Russia is a federal semi presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects that has the ability to exert its influence on a global scale, possess economic, military, diplomatic, and cultural strength, which may cause other nations to consider the opinion of Russia before taking actions of their own. Russia was founded, populated and ruled by a noble Viking warrior class and their descendants called Rus, the first East Slavic state, Kievan Rus, arose in the 9th century and adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire in 988. The Vikings Scandinavian (Varangians or Rus) forget the Norsemen roots and created their own Indo European Slavic tribes, East Slavic languages, culture and roots, the first king was Rurik, electe ruler of Novgorod in 862 and founded the Rurik Dynasty which ruled Kievan Rus and then Galicia Volhynia until the 14th and Muscovy until the 16th century. Today Rurik people became in three modern East Slavic nations Belarusians, Russians and Ukrainians. Under Peter I (Peter the Great), Russia was proclaimed an Empire in 1721 and became recognized as a world power. Ruling from 1682 to 1725, Peter defeated Sweden in the Great Northern War, forcing it to cede West Karelia and Ingria Estland, and Livland, securing Russia's access to the sea and sea trade. On the Baltic Sea Peter founded a new capital called Saint Petersburg. In 1762 entered into power the Empress of Russia Catherine II (Catherine the Great) the most powerful women in human history and conquer of West. Under her direct auspices the Russian Empire expanded into Western European lands, improved its administration, and continued to modernize Russia as the most powerful empire in the world. Napoleon made a major misstep when, following a dispute with Tsar Alexander I, he launched an invasion of the tsar's realm in 1812. The Napoleon campaign was a catastrophe. Although Napoleon's Grande Armée made its way to Moscow, the Russians' scorched earth strategy prevented the invaders from living off the country.In the bitterly cold Russian weather, thousands of French troops were ambushed and killed by Russian peasant. As Napoleon's forces retreated, the Russian peasant pursued the French troops killing and destroying everything in its path into Central and Western Europe and to the gates of Paris . In 1914 Russia entered World War I in response to Austria's declaration of war on Russia's ally Serbia, and fought across multiple fronts. The Russian army achieved such successes as the Brusilov Offensive in 1916, destroying the military of Austria Hungary completely. On 30 December 1922. became The Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic and The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) the largest socialist power in history. On 22 June 1941, Nazi Germany broke the non aggression treaty and invaded the Soviet Union with the largest and most powerful invasion force in human history,opening the largest theater of the Second World War. Subsequently the Germans were dealt major defeats in history first at the Battle of Stalingrad in the winter of 19421943, and then in the Battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943. Another German failure was the battle of Leningrad. Under Stalin's administration and the leadership of such prominent commanders as Georgy Zhukov and Konstantin Rokossovsky, Soviet forces conquered Berlin and part of Germany and called German Democratic Republic (GDR) also know as East Germany. In 4 October 1957 Russia conquered the space with Sputnik 1, was the first Earth orbiting artificial satellite and was the first in a series of satellites collectively known as the Sputnik program. Next the first man in space Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin on 12 April 1961 and the first woman Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova on 16 June 1963. In 1991 became the Russian Federation at beginning the Russian Federation and Boris Yeltsin not control the power dimension of Russia and caused structural problems especially with the population. On 31 December 1999 President Yeltsin resigned, handing the post to the recently appointed Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, who then won the 2000 presidential election. Putin's leadership return the power,order, stability, and progress to Russia has won him widespread popularity in Russia. Today The Russian Federation is a global superpower, is increasingly being seen as a world leader in its own right, Dmitry Medvedev was elected President, whilst Putin became Prime Minister.

The Arctic is an area with massive reserves that are extremely important for billions of people – but with unclear borderlines. History has shown us that this is an extremely dangerous situation. “Border Conflict” explains that the borders in the Arctic are disputed and have not been finally determined despite the fact that they have been defined in accordance with international criteria. Zoia Vylka Ravna is a member of the indigenous Nenets people, but she has lived away from the Russian tundra for a long time. She is now returning to her homeland in the far north of Russia where she becomes witness to the fact that her people’s traditional grazing grounds have been invaded by a new industry. Like the members of many other indigenous groups around the Polar basin she feels as though she has been robbed and forgotten. Will the countries in the north comply with international regulations while a desperate hunt for energy resource is taking place? Will it be possible to share this area without any military conflicts arising – and will the exploitation of natural resources be able to occur peacefully? In the final episode of the series “Ice Race” we stand at an important and dangerous crossroads in our search for more oil and gas. Because even though we are starting to use new sources of energy, the world will be dependent on petroleum activities for many decades to come. Despite numerous expeditions, our knowledge about the seas around the North Pole is still almost non-existent. The sovereigny of the countries around the polar basin only extends for 200 nautical miles. The remaining polar areas are administered by the UN. The race to find oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean has meant that it is therefore even more important for the five Arctic countries, i.e. USA, Russia, Canada, Norway and Denmark, to secure more of the polar basin. All these countries are therefore fighting intensely over what are sometimes overlapping border claims. These claims extend all the way to the outer limits of the continental shelf, i.e. the shallow waters off these countries’ coasts. If the new race culminates in predatory activities and major conflict, the indigenous populations could become the first and greatest loosers!

SOUNDBITE: (English) Anna Fotyga, Polish Foreign Minister: "There is this ban on Polish (inaudible) commodities and we would like Russia to lift it as we consider this ban of a purely political nature. That is all. And this position is supported by the (EU) Commission." 4. Medium of Fotyga and Polish press spokesperson 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Anna Fotyga, Polish Foreign Minister: "Without clear political signal from Russian side, you mean? So whether we willing to back off? No, we are unwilling." 6. Polish delegates listening to the media briefing 7. SOUNDBITE (Polish) Anna Fotyga, Polish Foreign Minister: ++TRANSLATION UNAVAILABLE++ 8. Fotyga leaving STORYLINE: Poland vetoed a European Union plan on Monday to open talks with Russia aimed at broadening cooperation, especially in energy, saying Moscow should first end a ban on imports of Polish meat and plants. The Polish move prevented the EU foreign ministers from finalising the bloc's negotiating position for an economic cooperation deal with Russia to replace a far less ambitious 1997 accord. It was hoped talks could begin at a November 24 meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. But Polish Foreign Minister Anna Fotyga said Russia's ban on Polish imports violated its current cooperation accord with the EU and that in energy trade Moscow threatened Poland's "overall energy security." Fotyga told reporters at a media conference in Brussels that Poland was not willing to back off without a clear political signal from Russia that the import ban would be lifted and that Moscow would commit to fair trade in energy under the next cooperation deal with the EU. She said she was "not confident" this could be achieved by November 24, but EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner said the Helsinki meeting with Putin that day remained on the agenda. Speaking of the Russian ban on Polish imports of meat and plant products for health reasons, Ferrero-Waldner said the EU was "fully aware of the difficulties Poland is experiencing" and that they sympathised. EU food safety experts will soon visit Poland to certify again that Polish meat and plant exports are safe. Poland's relations with Russia have soured in recent years. Moscow alleges that Polish meat and plant products are substandard. In turn, Poland accuses Moscow of violating fair trade rules in its supply of Russian gas and oil and not guaranteeing free transit of energy from countries such as Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Increasingly dependent on Russian gas and oil imports, the EU wants Putin to ratify an international energy charter that would make it easier for foreign companies to invest in Russia's energy sector and provide legal guarantees for investors. In effect since 1998, the charter has been signed by more than 50 countries, including Russia. But Moscow is dragging its heels in ratifying it. Putin's reluctance is seen by many as an attempt to guard Russian energy resources for domestic companies while keeping foreign rivals out.

India, Russia May Join Hands For Providing Nuclear Energy To 3rd Country. The decision by India and Russia at the recent (June 1) annual Summit to undertake joint economic projects in third countries including in the area of clean energy have opened up possibilities of collaboration in civilian nuclear energy sector. India and Russia are currently fine-tuning their civil nuclear energy partnership in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. India with its experience in the civil nuclear industry will train personnel and provide expertise to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. India has entered into civilian nuclear partnerships arrangements with both Dhaka and Colombo. Russia is building Bangladesh's maiden nuclear power plant in Roopur. ATOMEXPO 2017 that was inaugurated here on 2017 would seek to explore further opportunities for bilateral partnership in third countries in Africa and Southeast Asia. ATOMEXPO organized annually by Russia’s state-run nuclear agency ROSATOM since 2009 is globally the largest international exhibition and business platform to discuss the present situation of the nuclear industry worldwide. Besides Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant where Units 5 & 6 will be set up following the agreement on June 1 annual Summit at St Petersburg Russia has the biggest presence globally in new reactors market across Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe at a time when US nuclear major Westinghouse is facing bankruptcy issue and French nuclear major Areva is undergoing restructuring. Indian and Russian civil nuclear partnership could be extended to the area of joint extraction of natural uranium and the production of nuclear fuel and nuclear waste elimination, Rosatom officials told ET here. Rosatom has 29 nuclear reactors in various stages of planning and construction in several countries including in Jordan, Hungary, Egypt, Iran, Finland, Turkey and Argentina. Indo-Russian Strategic Vision document signed in 2014 mentions that the two countries would explore “opportunities for sourcing materials, equipment and services from Indian industry for the construction of the Russian designed nuclear power plants in third countries”. The vision document also suggested that the two countries “would examine the possibility of technical cooperation in mining activities within their territories and collaborate in exploration and mining activities in third countries”. Rosatom has a target of enhancing their foreign order to $150 billion over the next five years. Atom as a basis for zero carbon energy future was the main event on Monday where ROSATOM officials, companies, international organizations and leading experts discussed contemporary challenges of the power sector globally and role of nuclear generation as a reliable, economically predicted and environmentally friendly energy source amid the US President’s decision to withdraw from the Paris deal. India’s decision to expand footprints in the nuclear energy sector including 10 indigenously developed reactors will be in keeping with its commitment to clean energy notwithstanding US withdrawal from the Paris accord. ROSATOM is also involved with Indian companies for localization of the carbon fabrics production based on Russian carbon fibre. This will be in keeping with spirit of localisation of products under Make in India initiative. current relationship between india and russia, fgfa news, india and russia latest news, india and russia news, india and russia relations, india defence deal, india relation with russia, india russia, india russia defence, india russia defence deals, india russia defence news, india russia news, india russia relations, india russia relations latest news, india to russia, modi putin, modi russia, pakistan russia relations, relation between india and russia, russia india ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak spoke of the importance of a binding relationship with the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries over the future production of energy, during a press conference at the ASEAN-Russia summit in Sochi, Friday. SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "South-east Asia is one of the most significant regions for us and it is an integral part of the global energy landscape. In fact, according to the data of various experts and international energy agencies, today the energy consumption here is lower than the global average by half, but since 1990 until today the general consumption of energy in the ASEAN region has increased by more than two and a half times. We realise within all the forecasts that the main growth of global energy consumption will be in this particular region." SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "Today we supply oil and petroleum products to such countries as Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines. In prospect within bilateral cooperation we consider the possibility of supplies of energy resources to other countries." SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "As you know, during the bilateral meeting with Indonesia an agreement on the construction of a petroleum refinery in Indonesia together with Rosneft was reached." SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "Well, certainly, as for the cooperation on the construction of the refinery, it should be mutually beneficial. First of all, I am talking about of the use of Russian technologies being represented at this refinery. It is advantageous for the Russian Federation in terms of the export of Russian equipment and Russian technologies." SOT, Alexander Novak, Russian Energy Minister (Russian): "We expect that the potential these countries of the ASEAN region have, will be realised by our joint oil and gas and electricity companies via the exchange of experience and technologies. And we expect that certain agreements on the participation of ASEAN countries in the realisation of projects in Russia will also be reached."

Our main Georgian customers are 'Mtkvari', which is the energy corporation, and it is in charge of supplying electricity in the country.

SOUNDBITE (Georgian) Voxpop, Kakha Gvaramia: "It is horrible that the gas supply might be cut off. Especially if in January there are freezing temperatures, in this case I don't know what we will do." 11. Various of city STORYLINE : Georgia has agreed to more than double what it pays for natural gas from Russia, according to Russian energy giant OAO Gazprom, in a deal that could potentially threaten its fragile economy. Alexander Medvedev, the head of Gazprom's export division, told reporters in Moscow that Gazprom had signed three contracts to supply Georgia with natural gas at US$235 (per 1,000 cubic metres next year. Georgian officials have given no comment on the contracts with Gazprom, which is Russia's state-controlled natural gas monopoly. Earlier, Georgia's prime minister had insisted that neighbouring Azerbaijan would be the country's main supplier next year. Three Georgian companies will receive 1.1 (b) billion cubic meters of gas next year under the new agreement, an amount that falls about 700 (m) million cubic metres short of the country's expected demand for 2007. "They (the Georgians) have to establish themselves how much gas they need and how they will deal with their finances in the current situation," Medvedev told reporters. Relations between Russia and its small Caucasus neighbour deteriorated sharply after Georgia briefly detained four Russian military officers on spying charges earlier this year. Moscow retaliated with an economic and transport blockade and a crackdown on Georgian migrants. Currently, Georgia pays 110 US dollars per 1,000 cubic metres and had long balked at the higher gas price, accusing Russia of "political blackmail" and of using its vast energy resources to punish the former Soviet republic's Western-leading policies. Earlier this week Gazprom had threatened to cut off supplies if the new price was not accepted. Facing the prospect of either sharply higher prices for Russian gas or even a full cut-off, Georgian officials have sought a deal with Azerbaijan, an energy-rich ex-Soviet republic. Georgian Prime Minister Zurab Nogaideli told a briefing in Tbilisi earlier on Friday that Azerbaijan would be the country's main supplier of gas next year. Meanwhile, on the streets of Georgia's capital, Tbilisi people questioned the stability of their gas supply.

Moscow and Beijing failed to agree on a major energy deal. But an assistant professor of economics at City University in Hong Kong believes the two economies will only benefit from the mutual co-operation. "These economies are highly complementary to each other," Dr. Baozhi Qu.told RT. "For instance, China has a big market, China has a great energy demand, and also China is growing fast. On the other hand, Russia has a big land size very rich in energy and mineral resources. Russia needs China as a big market, as a consumer. So, fundamentally speaking, both countries can be complementary to each other and can play a positive role in the global recovery." "Russia used to depend on the European market as the buyers of its oil and gas," Qu elaborated. "But we all know that the European market doesn't look very bright, at least for now. Russia needs to diversify in terms of getting its oil and gas and other energy resources sold. If Russia can have a more balanced model between Europe and East Asia, which is the most rapidly-developing region in the world, this would be beneficial for Russia in the long run. And this will be good for China too. China also wants to diversify its supply of energy sources. For instance, it used to depend heavily on the Middle East. But we all know about the recent disturbances there. So China is hungry for the new energy source. Certainly, if this deal is reached and China can buy a large amount of gas from Russia, it can get a stable and long-term reliable energy resources, so that is certainly beneficial for China." Commenting the failure of the two countries to reach a gas deal, Dr. Baozhi Qu believes that sooner or later the contract will be signed. "Gas talks are a big deal and a lot of money is involved, so, you can imagine the negotiations will be tough. There are a lot of terms which need to be determined and negotiated. It takes time," he said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stressed the importance of Turkey as a transit country for natural gas supplies to Europe, during an address at the World Energy Congress 2016 in Istanbul on Monday. "For European energy security, I think this is a huge contribution," he said of Turkey's regional energy role. He added that he expected Turkey and Russia to construct a fourth energy corridor to Europe under the Turkish Stream pipeline scheme. SOT, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish President (Turkish): "Of course we are not a supplier, as a country we do not supply natural gas - we consume natural gas and we transport natural gas. We are a transit country and these are two things that are special about Turkey. And we need to bolster this with technology and make sure that we bring supply and these assets together. And for the European energy security, I think this is a huge contribution. Within this perspective, I think that with the Russian Federation, after Algeria and Norway, we are going to be building a fourth energy corridor to Europe. With the launch of the TANAP [Trans Anatolian Pipeline] project, I think that a new alternative will emerge for the supply of natural gas to Europe; and Turkey agrees that the interconnection of natural gas was the first step in this project. I think this is hugely significant for Europe as well. And another area that we feel strongly about is nuclear energy. In 2010, we signed a deal with the Russian Federation for the Akkuyu nuclear power plant. We signed the deal between our two governments to initiate this process and, with Japan, we have signed a deal to build the Sinop nuclear power plant project on the shores of the Black Sea. Now, we are looking for a third nuclear power plant to be built in Turkey." SOT, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkish President (Turkish): "As terrorism is a global ill, that is why other countries should support Turkey in this fight. Just as we are fighting these terrorist organisations in Turkey [outlawed Kurdish organisations], we should also focus on Syria and Iraq, and I believe we have the same right to carry out a campaign against these terrorist organisations. Our presence in Syria and Iraq is not discretionary, it is necessary for us and for the security of energy resources, we need to rid these regions of terrorists as well. We are fighting not only for our national security, but for the energy security of the world as well!"

The deputy chairman of Russia's largest state-backed gas firm, Gazprom, says his company will increase its exports of liquefied natural gas to thriving Asian countries. Deputy Chairman Alexander Medvedev made the comment on Tuesday at the Sakhalin oil and gas conference in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. He said Asian gas markets such as China are rapidly growing and will catch up with Europe by 2030. He stressed that his company will expand its liquefied natural gas exports to Japan and other Asia-Pacific countries. Officials from Japanese gas firms and trading houses are taking part in the meeting. Senior Vice Foreign Minister Masaji Matsuyama said on behalf of the Japanese government that energy cooperation between Japan and Russia can enhance the steadily growing bilateral economic ties. He said Japan is interested in developing energy resources in Russia's Far East. Japan's natural gas imports from Russia have increased since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in 2011. They reached 9.5 percent of last year's total. An official of a Japanese oil development firm said he feels the expectations of the Russian side. He said his company is paying close attention to resource development in Sakhalin, a close neighbor of Japan where demand for oil and natural gas is growing.

Trailer video for political thriller CORRUPTION OF POWER, #1 in Amazon International Mystery & Crime chart. Synopsis: Ukraine is only the opening gambit, so far as the Russian President is concerned. With his sights set on territorial expansion and undeterred by the prospect of a new Cold War, he intends first to shift Russia’s economic focus towards the East in order to shield the country from the reprisals that his next move is sure to provoke. The President delegates to his Prime Minister the redeployment of Russia's vast energy resources, a vital component of his strategy. But when plans for a pipeline to run through Turkmenistan and Afghanistan tilt off-course, it threatens to spread the current conflagration in the Middle East right up to Russia’s own borders. Against a background of political corruption, state-sponsored terrorism and increased Taliban insurgency, the President turns to independent troubleshooter ALEX LEKSIN whose investigations take him from Moscow into one of the world's most sinister countries, right at the heart of Central Asia. Initially his enquiries reveal nothing to cause alarm. Other factors, though, suggest otherwise: wherever Leksin goes, someone tries to kill him; people in a position to help him are assassinated; and information turns out to be misinformation. And when at last he discovers the truth, he finds himself unsure of whom he can trust as the stakes get frighteningly higher.

Jonathan Elkind Independent energy, environment and security consultant and former Director for Russian, Ukrainian, and Eurasian Affairs, National Security Council (1998-2001) Against the backdrop of global cooperation and competition for energy resources, the potential of tapping vast oil and natural gas reserves in the Caspian Sea basin sparked the interest of various international actors beginning in the early 1990s. Today, development of mechanisms (such as the transnational Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline) to bring these resources to the market continues. Jonathan Elkind will examine the opportunities and challenges associated with the Caspian reserves, analyzing the involvement of various stakeholders—from multinational oil corporations to the governments of former Soviet states and other countries in the region and the world—and the economic and foreign policy impacts of the globalization of energy resources. Jonathan Elkind's visit is cosponsored by the Program in Arms Control, Disarmament, and International Security (ACDIS) with additional support from the Center for Global Studies, Environmental Council, and the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center. Thursday, October 19, 2006 4:00 pm Third Floor, Levis Faculty Center
Facing a cold shoulder from Europe and increased competition at home, Russia's Gazprom has struggled to assert dominance on the global energy market, prompting speculation the energy giant could have no choice but to splinter. With the Russian economy slipping into recession on the back of lower oil prices and Western sanctions over Ukraine, the economy ministry predicted Gazprom would produce 414 billion cubic metres of gas this year, an all-time low for the public company sitting atop some of the world's largest natural gas reserves. Gazprom's market capitalisation has plummeted in recent years. Prior to the 2008 financial crisis, the company was worth more than $300 billion. Its value now hovers around $50 billion, trailing far behind the world's other major energy companies. "Gazprom is confronted with the greatest challenge in its history," Chris Weafer, a partner at the Macro Advisory consultancy firm, told AFP. "What remains to be seen is whether Gazprom becomes an appendage of the foreign ministry or evolves into a global energy company." The decline in Gazprom's value and gas production coincides with mounting tensions with the European Union, which has accused it of catering to Moscow's geopolitical interests instead of operating according to business principles. The gas giant struck a $400 billion natural-gas deal with China last year, an agreement that was heralded as the symbol of Russia's pivot to Asia. Moscow and Beijing have since agreed on Russia supplying natural gas to western China. But Western sanctions imposed on Moscow over the Ukraine crisis have undermined Gazprom's attempts to turn away from Europe, its traditional market. Washington's ban on technology transfers to Russia for certain energy projects, including Gazprom's Yuzhnoye Kirinskoye field in the far eastern Okhotsk Sea, is stifling Moscow's ambitions on the Asian market. Gazprom was set to use the field to develop its liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity and, according to some reports, exchange assets with Anglo-Dutch company Shell. Without US technology, experts fear that Russia will not be able to exploit the field's resources. "This is bad news for Russia because the production of LNG is a strategic objective in the region," said Valery Nesterov, an analyst at Sberbank Investment CIB. The Ukraine conflict, which has propelled Russia's relations with the West to their post-Soviet nadir, has meanwhile exacerbated Europe's desire to dissociate from Gazprom. The company, however, has reiterated that Russian energy resources remain the most accessible to fulfil Europe's growing demand for gas. Gazprom's exports to Europe, which are expected to rise this year, still provide the company with hefty revenues in spite of lower energy prices. After the EU blocked Russia's South Stream gas pipeline project -- which would have brought Russian gas to western Europe via the Black Sea -- Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the country would work on a new pipeline, the TurkStream, which would run through Turkey. Gazprom is eager to complete the TurkStream pipeline to bypass Ukraine in its gas shipments, but its construction, which was scheduled to start in June, has been delayed. Experts said it is unlikely that Ankara will make any decisions on the project until after upcoming general elections. According to Mikhail Korchemkin, the director of the East European Gas Analysis firm, there are "next to zero" chances that the pipeline will be completed. Critics have said Gazprom has been slow to react to the ever-changing gas market, clinging to lengthy contracts pegged to fluctuating oil prices. Analysts have claimed that Gazprom could benefit from dividing its mammoth structure into smaller entities that would be more efficient and transparent. Russian media has reported that Igor Sechin, the influential head of Russian oil giant Rosneft, has asked the government to open up gas exports to competition and to split Gazprom in two, separating energy production and transportation. "I'm not sure Gazprom survives this difficult period," said analyst Korchemkin. "It would be easier for its development if it split into pieces within a couple of years."

Russian President Vladimir Putin told a gathering of Russia's ruling party members on Thursday (October 3) that the Arctic was inarguably a part of Russian territory and that Russia had plans to expand activity there. The Arctic is "...a part of the Russian Federation, which has been under our sovereignty throughout the past few centuries. And it will stay this way for the foreseeable future," Putin told United Russia party delegates. Putin said the country would reopen a Soviet-era military base there as part of a drive to make the northern coast a global shipping route and secure the region's vast energy resources. Two decades after abandoning it, Russia has sent 10 warships behind four nuclear-powered ice breakers to the base on the Novosibirsk Islands, a show of force as it resumes a permanent naval presence in the thawing region. Russia wants to tap into the region's vast mineral resources. Russian energy giant Gazprom's plans to begin oil production in the Arctic have raised the concerns of environmentalists who say an oil spill there could have catastrophic consequences for the environment.

Three Russians have been charged with acting as agents of the SVR, the Russian foreign intelligence agency, in New York City, according to a statement published on the United States Department of Justice website. The three Russian nationals facing espionage charges are Evgeny Buryakov, aka “Zhenya,” who posed as an employee of a Russian bank in Manhattan, and Igor Sporyshev and Victor Podobnyy, who are protected from prosecution by diplomatic immunity because they officially worked for the Russian Federation. Federal investigators say Sporyshev, 40, and Podobnyy, 27, who are no longer in the U.S., were in charge of attempting to recruit New York residents as intelligence sources for Russia. Sporyshev and Podobnyy are accused of tasking Burakov, 39, who was arrested on Monday, to gather intelligence and transmitting his intelligence reports to Moscow. The FBI recorded more than 48 meetings among the three. Several involved Buryakov passing a bag, magazine or slip of paper to Sporyshev. The men are accused of gathering intelligence on potential U.S. sanctions against the Russian Federation and U.S. efforts to develop alternative energy resources. “This investigation is one of many that highlight the determined and prolific efforts by foreign governments to target Americans for the purposes of collecting intelligence and stealing secrets,” FBI Assistant Director Randall Coleman said in the Justice Department statement. “This case is especially egregious as it demonstrates the actions of a foreign intelligence service to integrate a covert intelligence agent into American society under the cover of an employee in the financial sector. Espionage is as pervasive today as it has even been, and FBI counterintelligence teams will continue to aggressively investigate and expose hostile foreign intelligence activities conducted on U.S. soil.” ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr. Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the Russian Federation (Russian: Российская Федерация, tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia. It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects. From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea of Okhotsk and the US state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At 17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million people as of 2012. Extending across the entirety of northern Asia and much of Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms. The nation's history began with that of the East Slavs, who emerged as a recognizable group in Europe between the 3rd and 8th centuries AD. Founded and ruled by a Varangian warrior elite and their descendants, the medieval state of Rus arose in the 9th century. In 988 it adopted Orthodox Christianity from the Byzantine Empire, beginning the synthesis of Byzantine and Slavic cultures that defined Russian culture for the next millennium. Rus' ultimately disintegrated into a number of smaller states; most of the Rus' lands were overrun by the Mongol invasion and became tributaries of the nomadic Golden Horde. The Grand Duchy of Moscow gradually reunified the surrounding Russian principalities, achieved independence from the Golden Horde, and came to dominate the cultural and political legacy of Kievan Rus'. By the 18th century, the nation had greatly expanded through conquest, annexation, and exploration to become the Russian Empire, which was the third largest empire in history, stretching from Poland in Europe to Alaska in North America. Following the Russian Revolution, the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic became the largest and leading constituent of the Soviet Union, the world's first constitutionally socialist state and a recognized superpower, which played a decisive role in the Allied victory in World War II. The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century, including the world's first spacecraft, and the first astronaut. The Russian Federation became the successor state of the Russian SFSR following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, and is recognized as the continuing legal personality of the All-Union state. The Russian economy ranking as the eighth largest by nominal GDP and sixth largest by purchasing power parity. Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources, the largest reserves in the world, have made it one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas globally. The country is one of the five recognized nuclear weapons states and possesses the largest stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. Russia is a great power and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, a member of the G8, G20, the Council of Europe, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Eurasian Economic Community, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and is the leading member of the Commonwealth of Independent States.
