BLOG: A failed foreign policy? Germany's reliance on Russian energy.

Jakub Ferenčík has written a blog on German dependence on Russian gas. In his post he discusses how the German government's initially positive intention to tie Russia to Europe through economic intergation for political stability has backfired and resulted in the opposite. It mentions the role of former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, who contributed significantly to Germany's dependence on Russian supplies, and the circumstances surrounding the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The second part analyses the legacy of former Chancellor Merkel and her failure to perceive Russian expansionist tendencies.

BLOG: A failed foreign policy? Germany's reliance on Russian energy.

Jakub Ferenčík napsal blog na téma německé závislosti na ruském plynu. V příspěvku rozebírá, že původně pozitivní záměr německé vlády, tedy skrze ekonomickou integraci připoutat Rusko k Evropě za účelem politické stability, se Evropě vymstil a vyústil v pravý opak. Zmiňuje roli bývalého kancléře Gerharda Schrödera, který výrazně přispěl k německé závislosti na dodávkách z Ruska, a okolnosti spojené s výstavbou plynovodu Nord Stream 2. V druhé části pak analyzuje odkaz bývalé kancléřky Merkelové a její selhání vnímat ruské expanzionistické tendence.
