Under attack: Russia’s energy war against Ukraine

From 15:30 till 17:00

Whereas the Ukrainian energy infrastructure remained relatively shielded in the first months of the war, a turning point can be remarked in October 2022. Both the intensity and the number of attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure have increased since. Despite the impressive efforts by the Ukrainian government, companies and engineers to restore the grid, blackouts have hit Ukraine’s population. More support will still be needed to restore the network as the attacks rage on.

On 20 December 2022, the Energy and Climate Chair of the College of Europe invited Ms. Irina Paliashvili, President and Senior Counsel of the Ukrainian Legal Group (RULG), and Mr. Yuri Kubrushko, Managing Partner of IMEPOWER, to discuss Russia’s new energy war against Ukraine. Their interventions were followed by a Q&A with the public.

The discussion was moderated by professor Dirk Buschle, Chairholder of the Energy and Climate Chair and Deputy Director of the Energy Community.

This event took place fully online via WebEx, and was open to students, as well as EU policy-makers and stakeholders.
