On February 23, 2017 in Brussels Dr. Konstantin Simonov will present the special analytical report "Nord Stream 2 and Ukraine: Costs Should Decide".

On February 23, 2017 at the Brussels Energy Club there will be a meeting and discussion the topic: "The price competitiveness of Russian gas supply corridors to Europe: the Ukrainian Route Vs the Nord Streams".

There is one fundamental question to be asked about the Nord Stream pipeline projects, particularly the expansion project Nord Stream II: is this a more cost efficient way of bringing Russian gas to the EU than via the long established Ukrainian corridor? While this is the type of question that might raise some eyebrows, it remains a discussion that needs to be had — ideally in a sober and rational manner.

And it is for this very reason that the  Brussels Energy Club has invited Dr. Konstantin Simonov, author of the recent paper: Nord Steam II Vs Ukraine: Let the Costs Decide, to Brussels to lead the discussion.

The subject of taxation became the absolute hit of 2018. The government once again decided to rewrite the rules of the game. President Putin’s new inauguration decree served as the main pretext. It turned out that about 8 trillion roubles extra was necessary for the new national projects announced. The Cabinet did not take long to decide where the funds should be taken. The result was acceleration of the so-called tax manoeuvre started as far back as 1 January 2015. It suggested shifting the tax burden to the wellhead: the effect on the state budget of gradual abandonment of the export duty will be more than compensated for by quicker growth in mineral resources extraction tax (MRET). The laws on tax reform have already gone through the parliament and will take effect as of next year. This means nothing good for companies.
