Milov, Again

Filed under: Economics,Energy,Politics,Russia — The Professor @ 10:45 am

The previous post quoted Vladimir Milov. This guy knows what he is talking about (from Kommersant via Johnson’s Russia List):

As to Russia’s participant of the discussion, Vladimir Milov, he recalled more than three-fold growth of government’s interest in private energy companies, which widened from 11.5 percent in 2004 to 38.9 percent today.

Asked to comment on results of the conference, Milov told Kommersant that there was no one to pursue common energy policy in Europe, as “this calls for the people with muscles.” “Today’s strategy of the Germans, Frenchmen, Italians and Austrians will make them bankrupt, if Gazprom has problems with supplies. As to the relations of the U.S. and Europe with Russia, they proved unprepared and overslept emergence of undemocratic regime in the RF,” Milov pointed out.

There’s really nothing to add.
